Re: Grading Issues and Questions

Hi Fred;

We have a joining fee of 6000 Yen plus insurance 1500 Yen
You are expected to buy a dogi 8-10,000 yen and of course the first months fee 8-10,000 Yen depending on how often you come.

After that it is a monthly fee and yearly insurance. Yudansha pay an extra 1500 Yen per year.

For that you can practice up to 7 days a week multiple times per day. I think it is totally reasonable.

University club members join through their university club - cheaper overall.

My group I just charge 500 Yen a lesson.

Hope that helps.
