<Monthly Membership Fees>



Changes in membership fees for presently active members will be implemented on May 1st, 2017. For new members, these changes will be carried out from April 1st, 2017.
Please note that from April 2017 all monthly charges will cover open courses. There will no longer be various courses.
Elementary school students:  6,500 yen.
Junior high school and high school students:  ¥ 7,000 yen.
University / vocational college students:  7,500 yen.
Women: 8,000 yen.
Men: 9,000 yen
Members 65 and over:  8,000 yen.
※ A Family discount system is to be implemented for married couples, parents and siblings. 500 yen will be deducted from the second family member’s membership monthly fee.
We are also introducing a one-lesson-per-month voucher system for members who are unable to train regularly. However, those who purchase are still subject to annual membership fees. Twelve coupons are available for 12,000 yen for one year. If in the case, a voucher bearer exceeds twelve lessons per year, he or she will be charged the monthly dojo fee.
There are no changes in the admission expenses, the annual fee or sports insurance costs.



Please do not hesitate to ask at the dojo office if any of these changes are unclear.


We appreciate your continued understanding and support.

Thank you.
