Martial Arts Classes

Sign up before Christmas, and we'll give you a free month of Shorin-Ryu karate lessons! Just pay for your first month of karate lessons, and we'll throw in an extra month for free! And if you sign up a second family member, it will cost only $20/month more! Stop by our hombu dojo in Mesa, and watch a class, or sign up.

Group classes are only $130/month.

Pay as you go (cash or personal check - no contracts). Martial arts training provides valuable health benefits you cannot get from a gym or health food store. 

Family rates are $150 for two family members. Yes, just add $20 to your membership fees each month, and you and your spouse, or you and your son or daughter can attend together. The only other fees are periodic kyu/dan rank exams (these are optional). Fees are $50 for kyu rank (color belts) and $250 for dan rank (black belt). Children must be mentally focused and at least 8 years of age.

See below for more information on exams. And, we reserve the right to refuse training to anyone.

"The purpose of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in perfection of the participants" - Gichin Funakoshi.

  • We also offer special clinics on some Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 am, and an annual Arizona-Utah Shorin-Ryu clinic in the Spring.



  • Periodically, members are asked to test for rank in karate and kobudo. Depending on the individual, this may occur after 2 to 6 months of training. If you pass, you will be promoted and awarded rank certification after a fee is paid.

  • All mudansha ranks (9th kyu to 1st kyu) known as color belts, are $50/rank.
  • Kobudo certifications - $50.
  • All yudansha ranks - $250. Most yudansha tests can be completed in one evening, with exceptions of Sandan (Sensei) & Godan (Shihan). These two require considerable evaluation & only those who show total dedication in training & attendance are considered. Typically, it takes a few weeks or more for these two tests.
  • Special rates are available for families.
