Can I try out a class before I commit?
Absolutely! We encourage you to come two times for free.

Is there a contract?
No, payments are made on a month-to-month basis.

How and when do I pay?
Payments are due at the beginning of each month. You can pay by check, cash, or credit card at the dojo, orĀ  via PayPal on the website (here is the link).

What should I wear to class?
Wear a t-shirt and shorts until you receive your uniform.

Do I have to compete?
No; however, some of our students regularly participate in martial arts tournaments, and if you are interested in competing, we can answer your questions in person.

How do I progress to the next level?
You progress by working on a rank-appropriate curriculum (see “Belts and Requirements”). Every three months, we host a testing event at the dojo where students get promoted after demonstrating mastery of new skills.

Are there any medical conditions that could prevent me from learning karate?
