Can we try a class for Free?

We love it when people come in and try out one of our classes. Yes, your 1st class is always FREE. You need to wear loose, non-bulky, comfortable exercise clothing.

Is there a joining fee?

No joining fee.

Will I have to buy a uniform?

Yes, you will need to buy a "GI", (pronounced GEE). When working out in your Karate class, stretching and moving will be much easier and comfortable.

Gi is required after your first week of class.  It is $40 plus tax

 Will I have to buy other equipment?

All students must purchase their own mouth guard, case and cup/support(boys only).

By the time they obtain their yellow belt ALL students must purchase their own gloves (required for all), helmet and faceshield(required for all students 18 and under).

What about testing?

To advance in a belt level, when you are ready you will "test".

We test every 3 months in Richland & Hermiston and test every 4 months in Yakima.

The cost to test is $40 and includes your American Shudokan Association Fees.

We are members of the American Shudokan Association and they offer scholarships for every black belt student graduating from High School.
