Dojo Training Fees

Free Trial Classes for New Adult Members

All new adult students are entitled to 2 free trial classes* to see what it's like. Contact us ahead of time to set up an appointment so we can properly prepare for your introductory lessons. You may wear a loose pair of pants and a T-shirt for your trial lessons. If you have a groin protector, bring it along too.

Students under 19 will need to have a parent or legal guardian sign our liability waiver on their behalf.
