How much do lessons cost?

We feel very strongly that it’s important to have an open and clear policy on the costs involved so that parents and students know where they stand before they take up training with us.

Your first lesson is free, after that we only charge £4 per lesson (family discount available) payable only when you train. We don’t charge monthly fees, use direct debits or contracts.

Annual licence and insurance
After 5 lessons we ask that students take out their annual licence with the Shukokai Karate Association at the cost of £23 per year up to purple belt and then it’s £39 per year from brown belt and above. Students will then receive their Shukokai Karate Association grading book and licence that includes person to person insurance.

All gradings are done by senior members of the Shukokai Karate Association and cost £25 up to purple belt, after that the price goes up to £35. 1st Dan black belt grading costs £70.

Unlike many clubs, we do not force you to purchase any equipment from us, you’re more than welcome to buy your own equipment from other places such as shops or websites and we are more than happy to advise you on the correct items.

If you wish to purchase your uniforms, protective equipment etc. from the club to ensure that you are purchasing the correct item, we do have a price list available upon request. To give you an idea of costs a training uniform (known as a gi) starts from £20

Can’t recommend this club highly enough. Our 3 boys have been attending for a month and absolutely love it.

We have all been made to feel very welcome and our boys were even presented with a club hoodie each today as a Christmas present. Great value for money and top class teaching. Keep up the good work!
