Martial Arts Cost?


Martial arts cost.

The martial arts cost for classes usually depends on the frequency of training. On average for one class the cost is anywhere between $10 and $20 per session, quite in line with other sports and activities. Many schools also charge a membership fee which can be a one off or yearly renewal. This may or may not include a uniform.

Membership fee.

Some schools have no membership fee but charge the equivalent for the uniform. Fees are generally paid by direct debit or credit card and for the good schools there is usually a one to two term commitment. They can afford to be a little stricter on their terms and conditions as they have great retention of their students.

Hidden costs

The schools that offer casual no obligation terms are the ones that have the highest turn over of students as there is no obligation to commit, and commitment is one of the qualities that students learn at martial arts. Schools should also be transparent about grading costs and make up lessons for missed classes.

The essence of Andy's teaching is correct martial arts training is a great method of personal growth. It can be studied on the surface to get fit and learn self-defense and it can also lead to incredible changes in self-confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline and self knowledge.

    I’ve been looking to find the right school for my son Jacob to learn self discipline and bring him out of his comfort zone/shell because he is a bit quieter. As well as being able to channel and focus his energy. In regards to the school we are looking for it to be more intimate and community/family like. After reading your website i am interested in viewing your school and would love to hear back from you in regards to times and availability.
    My son Jacob will be 4 in October

    Kind regards
