How much?

£100 per person. This includes:

  • 26 classes of 1 hour each: 13 in Greenwich starting 8 January, 13 in Charlton starting 11 January. So, training twice a week.
  • Student karate uniform with white belt
  • Training for 1 hour followed by exam with the guest examiner on June 19
  • Orange belt if/when you pass in June
  • That’s 27 hours of karate. That works out to be £3.70 per hour with a free uniform plus an orange belt.
  • The only other cost is for a licence & insurance directly from our association body Karate Union of Great Britain. This is £25 per child / £30 per adult

How to book

Email Sensei Frank to reserve your space and then pay as follows:

Remember, you have two classes to decide. If you decide you don’t want to do karate, then you may walk away without it costing you a penny. If you decide to stay, then you must pay by the third class.


  • You must pay the full amount upfront by the third class
  • No refunds
  • Your one-off payment covers all classes in the Spring term. If you wish to continue training after that, you pay normal rates along with everyone else
  • You must pay for a licence & insurance from our association body Karate Union of Great Britain. This is £25 per child / £30 per adult. This is not a payment to Senshi Karate and is renewable annually
  • The uniform will only be made available to new students to the cub and once you’ve paid the full amount
  • You must be at least 6 years old
  • You don’t have to train all 27 classes: this is karate, not the army!
  • If you don’t want to commit the £100 and train twice a week, that’s fine. You can still train on a pay as you go basis, £7 per class and buy the uniform separately and grade whenever we believe you’re ready
  • The external examiner will assess you independently and fairly. We will teach you what you need to pass your first belt, orange. The rest is up to you. In our experience, adults pick it up quicker than children, but if you train with us twice a week over the 13 weeks, have a good attitude and are determined, you should be ready to grade to orange belt in June! Remember, money doesn’t buy you karate success: hard work does!
