Tuition Drop!

Yes, that's correct, starting August 1, 2012 tuition for karate classes is dropping from $100 per month down to $75 per month until the end of the year.  We understand times are difficult for many people and we understand the physical and mental benefits that come from Martial Arts training.  We don't believe that the people in our community should go without those benefits so we are lowering our tuition to help people who want to experience better fitness, mental clarity and improved self-confidence to do so without putting a strain on their budget.

So If you've always wanted to study martial arts, but haven't been able to afford it or if you've had to stop your training because of money issues, come train with us and join our Karate family.
