Other Fees / Dues

MONTHLY DUES:

There are monthly dues for all youth and adult karate classes.  If a student attends a class any part of that month, the student pays his/her entire monthly dues. If a student is an active Club member, the student must pay his/her monthly dues.  There are no contracts.  Students may prepay their dues in 3 month intervals to qualify for a Club discount  There are also family/household discounts and discounts if you use electronic funds for payment of your dues.  Dues should generally be paid at the first of the month.  All checks are made payable to the order of Okinawan Karate Club of Dallas, Inc.

TESTING FEES:

There are no regular  testing fees when a student tests.  Testing fees may be incurred for yudansha tests.  Testing fees may also be incurred if an out of town Sensei is brought to the Club and the Club pays travel expenses and an honorarium to that Sensei (usually happens for dan tests).  That fee will always depend on who is brought in and how much it costs the Club. If a Sensei is brought in for the student's test, the student should pay strict attention to the feedback of that Sensei as well as any other Sensei.

WORKSHOP FEES:

All guest instructors are compensated for teaching. Workshop fees depend on who is brought in and how much their travel expenses are. Students are encouraged to attend all workshops.

EQUIPMENT:

Often beginner gi's (uniforms) are given to students with their first months of dues.  All equipment is paid for by the Club except for the purchase of one's gi, one's own personal weapons or sparring equipment.  All youth green belts and above are required to buy their own sparring equipment. All men and boys are required to wear a cup.  Students do not have to wear a gi to try a free class.   All belts will be given to the student by his/her Sensei. A student should never purchase his/her own belt and should only wear the belt given to him/her by his/her Sensei.

CERTIFICATES:

OKCD gives its own certificates after each major examination with no fee charged to the examinee.  However, students were encouraged to purchase certificates. That money supports that particular Sensei or his family. This is the product the Sensei has to sell for all the knowledge he has acquired.

Certificates from Sensei Shimabukuro (Grand Master, Shorin Ryu Shobayashi Karatedo) were previously given to the students but since O'Sensei passed away on Oct. 22, 2017 so these certificates are not longer able to be received.

Membership Fee $36.00 per year
Green Belt $80.00*
Brown Belt $90.00*
Black Belt $100.00*
Dan Ranking $100.00* per dan

Certificates from the late Sensei Todd, Shibucho for the late Grand Master Toyama, Shudokan Karatedo, were  made and given by Mrs. Eve Todd.  All prices were suggested donations.   Mrs. Todd passed away January 28, 2017 so these certificates are no longer able to be received.
