Classes

If you are interested in learning traditional Japanese martial arts you are welcome to visit and watch or participate in a class. Please contact us before visiting your first class to introduce yourself and to avoid disappointment if there has been a disruption to the regular class schedule.

Classes run for approximately 2 hours; seminars for 2+ hours. Please arrive 5-10 min early. Wear loose-fitting clothing and bring a bottle of water.

Minors will require parental permission to train.

Fees

The fee structure varies between locations. However, your first class is always FREE.

Once you have committed to the training (generally after 6-8 weeks), there is an annual insurance payment of $80 which allows you to train at any Makion-Ha Bujutsu dojo. You will also be required to purchase a uniform, which can be arranged through the dojo for $70 (includes cotton gi, embroidered emblem patch and white belt).

Tabi (traditional Japanese footwear) and kyahan (traditional Japanese gaiters) can also be purchased through the dojo – price depends on the size of group orders because of shipping costs from Japan but is usually around $50 for tabi and $30 for kyahan. Download tabi and kyahan sizing charts.

On-site cash payments are preferred at this stage as there are no card facilities available. Direct deposit may be possible by arrangement.
