post E-mail post Post   Comments (60)

Common forms of martial arts classes include karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, Aikido and Judo. There is little cost variance among the different types, which are often offered for both children and adults.

Typical costs:

  • CostHelper.com members report paying an average of $103 per month for studio members, with classes at community centers and gyms generally running $45-$99 a month, and private studios generally costing $75-$149 per month. The fee generally covers three classes or more per week, but some studios offer unlimited classes to members.
  • Some studios charge yearly membership dues as high as $100, and some require students to join a martial arts federation for an average of $60 annually.
  • Some studios that don't offer yearly memberships offer bundles instead, such as $200 to $250 for three months for unlimited classes.
  • Some sessions for children costs 20 to 50 percent less than adult classes, and rates are usually set on a sliding scale based on a child's age.
  • Some studios offer family rates of around 10 to 20 percent less for two or more members.

What should be included:
  • Most schools offer sessions for different experience levels. Some studios offer up to a week of free classes if you are considering a membership.
  • Sometimes the uniforms included with membership dues. Dojos usually provide safety gear for sparring during class.
Additional costs:
  • Students may buy their own uniforms, shoes and protective items. Karate Depot.com sells uniforms[1] for $17 to $50.
  • Depending on size and thickness of material, Tae Kwon do uniforms cost $17 to $40. Kung Fu uniforms cost $27 to $43, with jackets and pants often sold separately. Judo uniforms cost $30 to $50.
  • For sparring gear, it is often less expensive to buy protective items by the set[2] for $55 to $90, which includes headgear, gloves and leg guards and a mouthpiece.
  • Some dojos charge as much as $250 in promotion fees for each test, usually highest for the top ranking of black belt.
Discounts:
  • Martial Arts Mart often sells sparring gear[3] and clearance uniforms[4] online at a discount.
  • Some branches of the YMCA offer karate classes for $50 a month or less for adult members. Contact a YMCA near you to determine whether it offers a martial arts program.
Shopping for martial arts classes:
  • USADojo.com offers tips on choosing a type of martial art[5] . USGyms.net also provides background information[6] on 40 different martial arts styles.
  • USADojo.com recommends observing a class before committing to a membership, as well as other tips on choosing a school[7] . Beginning students should feel comfortable with the instructor's attitude and the experience levels of other students.

What originated as calico kids has a temporary location at a church in garland TX, but the instructors are amazing none the less! They truly arent about the money here, being the advancement tests start at $25.00 and only raise once you get to an advanced level. Even so, 50 is a great price for 3 days a week with 8 possible classes for you to join! Not to mention the head of the school requests report cards regularly for anybody that is in school to make sure that kids are on the right track with what comes first.

You dont need uniforms, and you dont sign any contracts. It is just month to month and taught by a policeman who was voted Instructor of the year by Black Belt. Yuh think this guy teaches what works in the street? NEVER EVER SIGN A CONTRACT! It is almost a sure sign you are getting trapped into something, and/or they are afraid you will find out that the teachers arent so "wonderful and top rated" after all. $140 a month is the going rate in South Florida. If you ever have to pay more than $150 for unlimited classes per month...ask why...and then run! Im 54 and its a struggle to keep up with the younger guys, but better to struggle here than stuggle on the street. Besides, a few guys are in their 60's. The 50's are really your last chance to get back your confidence, youth and vitality.

Worst Tae Kwondo Dojo Imaginable
Amount: $119.00 per month

Type: Tae KwondoDojo or School: Dojo
Hwarang Tigers Taekwondo is a perfect example of a "McDojo." McDojos are dojos that only care about the money. They hand out black belts in a short period of time for a hefty price by forcibly passing you even if you do not know any of the material. the Promotion Test for all belts before black at my dojo are $60-$100. They take advantage of the promotion test fees by making 12 belts before black The black belt exam at the dojo I go to is $550 plus a uniform of $95. This equals to $645 for a measly belt that definitely does not signify the ability to perform in a real fight. Most of the students are between the ages of 5 and 10. I have even witnessed a student starting the class at 3 years of age and receiving his black belt at 5 years old. I regret ever enrolling in this dojo although I didn't think too much at the time since I was only 10 years old. In fact, it looks like I have to regrettably pay my black belt exam fee today.

McDojo of King George VA - Muhammad's

Posted by: Disappointed MMA Student in King George, VA.Posted: August 28th, 2012 07:08PM
Type: Karate, MMA, Boxing, Martial ArtsDojo or School: Muhammad's
Inquired and took a few MMA classes for free at Muhammad's. The instructor was a great motivator and in very good shape. The students were awesome to get to know. All in all good place to spar but instruction was not as detail oriented as I had hoped. Given they don't advertise a MMA as a belt program I was not surprised.

When I inquired about pricing things got really weird. First, Muhammad's has not standard rate printed and it seems that the price was off the cuff $169 with a $200 sign up fee and a 12 month contract. If I signed up earlier, the rate was $149 and $99 sign up fee for a 12 month contract. I have 5 years martial arts experience and was applaud by these rates. This places screams McDojo, I strongly do not recommend practicing here. I enjoyed the MMA instructor as a sparring partner and the students but absolutely not a $149/month value.

They make you sign a contract. The initial one is 6 months, anything after that is usually 36 month long contract. Kids learn in the classes, however they push the purchase of really expensive weapons that must be ATA approved. This for kids as young as 3 years old. They never used the weapons when my kids were in class. They "test" the kids, which from my observation is no different from any other class. They test them for a higher level belt every 2 months and charge you $60 for the test and belt. My 3 year old was set to graduate to camo belt, but really seemed to not be any more advanced in taekwondo then when he was orange belt. This particular buisness is about the money first. Not friendly to military personell. They charged me a $100 cancellation fee when I recieved military orders forcing me to move away. They manager actually thought she was doing me a favor becuase she didn't have to "let me out" of my contract, obviously unfamiliar with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. She also thought that waiting 3 weeks to return my call only after I had an attorney call her was good, because she actually had 4-6 weeks to address my concerns, based on the "contract". I recommend that nobody sign a contract with this organization because they are only intended to trap you into paying them big bucks for the long term regardless of your personal situation.

This is a very good school in the Western Chicago suburbs. It costs $125.00 a month for classes 2x a week. If you join the "leadership program" you can attend unlimited classes per week and you also get to train weapons... this is an additional $50 a month. Uniforms are extra, $50 ea. Sparring equipment is extra, $200 for the kit which includes a uniform, sparring gear, 5 training weapons, and an equipment bag. Each test is $50 and I believe the price goes up for senior belt tests. It is certainly not cheap but a very reputable school.

We were encouraged to sign a years contract. I was not comfortable with the years commitment, but after seeing how much my child enjoyed the small class, I relented and signed. I wasn't informed of the $50 fee every other month for rank promotions, nor was I informed of the $280 cost for sparring gear. I found out the hard way, that a couple of weeks after we signed the contract, the owners decided to offer an awesome deal to all new students! "No contract to sign, free lessons, and the only fee was a $75 fee for rank promotions (IF you wanted to rank promote). If you weren't interested in promoting, no problem, you just don't have to pay. All of this would have been nice to know, the two weeks prior. Very shady business practices! Also, we were given a false sense of class sizes. Once they opened the new deal to the public (which they hid from us until I "accidentally" found out 3 1/2 months later), the class sizes grew considerably. It went from 3 kids in the class to 20!

We like the family environment. My children could see other children working hard and was excited that they could practice karate. They have karate class for age 3-5 for 30 min. who want to come and learn the basics while having fun. There is age 6-10 45min. and a class for 7 and up for the younger students that want a larger challenge. All classes learn tradtional karate. There is no flashy fireworks. They excitement comes from the different drills that are used in class. The structure is great, there is no military presence, but there is great respect. The whole family teaches classes and the children are very well mannered.

Judo classes in Hayward, Ca

Type: JudoDojo or School: Chabot College
Judo is run by the wrestling coach and a former Russian collegiate judoka. Morning classes are good for beginners. you must register with the college as a student in order to sign up for the morning class. The fee is $26 for a semester. Advanced class at night is not listed in the catalog due to budget cuts but it is at 6pm-8pm. Night class is run off of donations to the wrestling team through our coach. required donation for the night class is $60 for an entire semester. You must have prior judo experience in order to train at night. Furthermore, I advise all of you to never sign a gym contract without consulting a lawyer. I was personally locked into a bad contract a few years ago at a nearby martial arts academy that was supposed to be a one year contract. I paid for the year but to my surprise, it automatically renewed and I had lost my job 3 months after that. Since I had zero experience with gym contracts, I was dumb enough to sign without fully understanding.

WTF Tae Kwon Do program cost - Great Investment!

Type: Tae Kwon DoDojo or School: Master Chong's World Class TKD
The most impressive program I have seen and what you get is well worth the money. Occasional deals, lower rates for 2nd/3rd/and more family member. Discounts for pre-paying/paying in cash, committing to the full 'Black Belt Program'. Think of it as small group personal training with EVERY class - expensive at many gyms. Each test (every 2 - 6 months) has a $30 - $50 fee to cover the new belt, certificate of advancement, the next curriculum video, and probably the cost of the boards we break. The videos and the student manual are AWESOME components of this program!!! If you participate in tournaments (encouraged but never required) these also have some fees associated (often ~$25 per competition event, discounts for multiples). I found the tournaments and the fund raising activities to be particularly rewarding additions to the basic training program! Final Black Belt test has a $250 testing fee but you get a custom embroiderd black belt, a WTF Kukiwon membership card from Korea and the black collared uniform. I don't think that any of the fees were unreasonable for what I got but I didn't expect them when I signed up so the actual 'cost' was more than I had budgeted for initially. (Great value, no regrets, just not advertised well in advance) Similarly, the monthly fee may seem like a lot at first but is actually very reasonable for those who attend a few classes per week (I had friends who attend 6-8 classes/week) but for me and my 7 year-old daughter (7 when we started, 12 when we got our blackbelts together!) who were often able to attend only 1 - 3 times per week, it broke down to between ~10 - ~$30 per class (~$120/month / 4 weeks = $30/week @ 1 class per week = $30/class, @ 3 classes per week = $10/class) - an AWESOME value!!!

I have 2 children taking and after the 2nd child discount, we pay 85.00 for both to take per month. Testing Fees are $50.00 every 2 months for each child. So basically I pay $125.00 per month for everything. Sparring gear was about $400.00 for 2 sets. It is expensive, but for the quality of instruction at Taekwondo Plus, it is worth every penny. The only thing I don't like is that I can't buy replacements for outgrown items somewhere else for cheaper. When they out grow their uniforms, I will have to buy new patches, too. Does anyone know where you can find the jackets, or if you can somewhere else that has tiger rock equipment?

Very expensive, then having to pay $60 for each testing seems insane to me, especially for a 5 year old. Plus, some of the kids who belt up most certainly don't have a "black belt attitude", nor do they know their moves very well, so that's a little upsetting. The instructors are excellent though and I absolutely love the program. Just upset by the the amount of money they charge. I feel like i'm being robbed by them.

Itís my experience and I have seen school pricing thatís all over the board, from school to school. Also there is no reciprocity between schools (which I find odd at best).
I found a school I like however I have been asked to sign an agreement for 36 months for my family which costs over the term $13,500 (thatís for 36 months). There is no cancellation after 30 days?

Type: Tae Kwon DoDojo or School: ATA
My daughter started the last of June with the first month being $49 (this included full uniform). Each month after is $99. The trainers are very good with the kids & adults. My daughter got her orange belt within a month and a half and her yellow within the next month or so. Each testing costed $45. She has recently been invited to join the black belt club. This is initially $149 (includes new uniform and current weapon). The monthly cost after will be $109/per month; in which I will still have to get her ATA bag and sparring gear (they can only use ATA certified products). The training is reasonable, but they get you with the cost of gear and testing. But overall it is worth it--she loves it. Hope this helped!

I recently enrolled my 8yr.old in TKD. The price was about 140mo for 2x/wk. But I paid for the year because it was cheaper, $1,400/yr. They then offered to me the option to enroll for an additional $50/mo. It was a special offer cause I am single mom and I would have to help them with writing letters and help out to get this offer. I dont know if this truly is a GOOD deal.

No contracts! no tests or testing fees! this is a family system I like to call it old school, you can find a Moy yat Ving Tsun school near you by a simple Google search. it's a no nonsense approach to martial arts training the cost can depend on your level of commitment and location.
