Adult (Age 16+) – $125 per session
Family Rate – $170 per session (for immediate family members living in the same residence)

Due to changes in the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation fee structure for insurance and such, we now have to add an additional fee of $70.00 per member (members joining under the Family Rate only pay this fee for the first 2 family members). This fee is paid only ONCE PER SEASON.

Students are welcome to attend classes at other clubs that are part of the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation at no additional charge. Please be courteous, introduce yourself and your home club to one of the club instructors. Ask a Sensei for more information about visiting other clubs.

Equipment

Karate is one of the few sports that requires very little equipment. After their first month in Karate, students(karateka) are required to purchase a white karate Gi which is free from all markings. The approved Wado lettering may be sewn on the left breast of the Gi top. A mouth guard and hand pads are required for sparring (kumite). For all students (male AND female), a protective cup is encouraged for kumite. Female karateka should also consider using a chest guard. All equipment (except the protective cup) is available for purchase through the club.
