All students participating in class must wear a facial covering at all times 2. Temperature checks upon arrival 3. Hand sanitizer provided upon arrival 4. Minimal to no contact between instructors and students 5. We are only teaching Karate at this time with no contact Judo and Jiu Jitsu drills If you have specific questions or concerns regarding our COVID-19 policies and procedures, please feel free to reach out to us directly via email at settingsundojo@gmail.com

How much do your memberships cost?


Our goal is to find the best martial arts school for you and your family, and we understand that some families are looking for a different martial arts experience. That is why we offer all new Setting Sun Dojo students a 2 week free trial before you register to ensure you are as commited to us as we are to you! After your 2 week free trial, we charge our memberships on a monthly basis. We operate our Dojo like a typical fitness gym membership, meaning we do not pro-rate our classes. We charge $175/mo per student ($250/mo for 2 family students, $300/mo for 3+family students) and that price includes your GI (martial arts uniform), 2 weekly classes, and 1 optional weekend class that is used for additional training or a make-up class in case you miss a class during the week.
