Questions & Answers
How much does it cost?
We always offer a free intro class (private or with a regular class) in order for the student to try it out and see if they would be a good fit here. No strings attached, to see how it is.
Depending on the class, number of training days per week, and age of the student, the price of tuition can vary, which is why it is always easiest to look over what we can offer you or your child when they stop by for a free intro lesson.
We always give out a free uniform for each new student to welcome them in, as well as discounted pricing models for families with more than one student enrolled.
Regardless of the program, each new student is entitled to:
- a free uniform
- a free intro
- Discounted prices for additional family members
My 4 year old daughter is small for her age and I'm worried about who will be in her class?
Our classes are divided by student's age and experience. HiYa! Karate even offers an exclusive 3-4 year old program to ensure your young child is comfortable in her environment. Whatever your daughter's age, she will always take class with other students her own age range and ability. This insures a quality class that will be fun and educational for all involved.

Our instructors routinely train with the safety-first mentality, and our equipment and flooring are designed specifically for the practice of martial arts.
My son has taken an interest in martial arts, but I'm worried he will use fighting for conflicts? How can you help me?
HiYa! Karate teaches more than just kicking and punching. We stress discipline and choice. Our students learn the true value of avoiding conflict and even the strength to "walk away." It's also important to realize that we teach the tools necessary not only for self-defense but for self-control.
My son is starting at age 9. How long will it take him to get his Black Belt?
Every student's journey to achieve a black belt in martial arts is unique. On average, our students test for a belt advance every 3-4 months with at least 2 practice per week. Once they reach advance belt ranks of red and brown, our students are encouraged to train as often as possible. the last interval of training before testing for First Dan Black Belt lasts about 6 months. With dedication and hard work, your child could achieve his black belt within 4 years of training. However, we believe the journey to achieve a black belt is more rewarding than the belt status itself.
