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.

in Boca, FL. Posted: May 12th, 2013 04:05PM Type: JKD and Krav Maga Dojo or School: Progressive Self Defense 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. Posted by: Disappointed Customer in Katy, TX.
Posted: February 15th, 2013 03:02PM Type: Tae Kwondo Dojo 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.

Posted: September 19th, 2012 05:09PM Type: Taekwondo Dojo or School: Viktory Martial Arts There is a non-refundable registration fee of $250. Every month we have to pay $150. If we can pay for 6 months there is 10% off. so I paid $720(~ $120 per month) and uniform comes free. Again we have to buy equipment which is of $280 worth. So i have to pay $1000 at once. Does it worth that much ? Posted by: Todd Martin in Corona, CA.
Posted: September 16th, 2012 03:09AM Type: Traditional Taekwondo Dojo or School: School Outreach program RRYA offers the best martial arts featuring Taekwondo. Cost is $7, $6, $5, per class, class is usually an hour long. Only offered once a week at the location we go to, but can go to other locations on different nights. They are currently looking for a building they can lease, so they can offer everyday use, cost would be $50 per month and 4 days a week use of facility.
Equipment packages are insanely cheap, $140 includes chest, head, shin, arm/hand, and gym bag. Uniforms are $35 and have custom screen printing on them. Instructor is very patient and very good with the kids.

Posted by: Disappointed MMA Student in King George, VA. Posted: August 28th, 2012 07:08PM Type: Karate, MMA, Boxing, Martial Arts Dojo 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. Posted by: KGray in North Little Rock, AR. Posted: May 9th, 2012 07:05AM Type: Taekwondo Dojo or School: ATA Martial Arts 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. Posted by: Alexandrea in Staten Island, NY. Posted: May 6th, 2012 12:05PM Type: Ninjitsu Dojo or School: Master Yuseff Mya Ru Ninjitsu Do The $50 is for 3 months. You need to buy your own clothing and pads, but it is definitely worth it.
Posted by: Karnidge in Elgin, IL. Posted: April 2nd, 2012 02:04PM Type: Kyuki-do Dojo or School: Kim's Black Belt Academy 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. Posted by: glivaudais in Metairie, LA.

Posted by: Christine9859 in Lafayette, IN. Posted: February 28th, 2012 06:02PM Type: ATA Dojo or School: Dojo 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!

How much do martial arts classes cost? Our rate structure for martial arts and self defense classes is very simple and straight forward. Many other martial arts schools require you to sign for long term contracts — we don’t. Many martial arts dojos have separate and extra charges for belt tests — we don’t. Many schools require you to buy all your uniform and training equipment through the school — we don’t.
At Full Potential Martial Arts all you pay for your training is $100 per month, and that includes everything. Additionally, we offer tuition scholarships to students, based on financial need. If you want to train but feel you may not be able to afford it, talk to us! Will you require me sign a long-term contract? No. You pay month to month. There is no long term commitment. We want you to train in the marital arts because you like it, not because you are contractually obligated or “tied in”.
How much do you charge for belt tests? Zero. Nada. Your monthly dues is all you pay. When you are ready for a test, we test you at no charge. But surely, I must pay for my new belt. How much is that? Belts are free. You earn your belt through your hard training. When you have earned a belt, we give it to you. Gratis. Will you pressure me to purchase private lessons, at extra cost? No. We do not charge for private lessons.
When you need private instruction to progress in your martial arts training, we give it to you — for free. How about equipment? What do I need to buy from you to start? Nothing. Just show up in comfortable exercise clothes. Later on, you may want to invest in a uniform (gi). You are welcome to buy any plain white gi from your favorite martial arts store. We can recommend a few brands that are of good quality while being inexpensive.
