PRIVATE LESSONS

Private lessons are the historical way Shorin-ryu karate was taught. It’s only in the last 100 years that group lessons became the main teaching vehicle. One-on-one instruction allows student and teacher to focus in on the exact things the student needs to improve. Private lessons are the most efficient way to learn karate and to progress.

30 MINUTES – $45

60 MINUTES – $60

GROUP LESSONS

Group lessons are suspended until at least December 15 2020 due to the current health emergency, as established by the Alberta provincial government.

INDIVIDUAL GROUP SUBSCRIPTION – $100
