Sawbridgeworth School of Shotokan Karate – Fees


Our philosophy on lesson and grading fees is simple, you only pay for those that you attend.

There are also annual club and association fees that cover your SHOTO/EKF registration which ensures that you are covered by the instructor’s insurance policy.


We use a simplified traditional Kyu grade coloured belt structure with no intermediate belts. Whilst this means fewer gradings than at some other clubs there is no compromise on the time it takes to attain black belt standard with a minimum six months between brown belt gradings.
