At the Martial Arts Education Centre we have a policy of complete tuition transparency. Unlike some other martial arts schools that make you come in first and wont tell you their fees we are happy to disclose them.
Also we will not make you sign any contracts so if you have to stop attending for whatever reason the payments can be cancelled immediately. We are NOT a commercial school but we do have bills and rent to pay so as long as we can cover these we are happy!
If you feel you can not afford our fees then you are welcome to come and try out and then discuss what you can afford. We do have some scholarship type placements so please give us a try and find out what we have to offer.
Please be advised that we reserve the right NOT to accept any and every student that wants to join. We may cancel your membership at any time (and cancel the payments) if your behaviour is considered unsuitable.
All our students start with an initial payment. For this they get the 'dogi' or training uniform along with the next two weeks training. The fees for this are $150 for all juniors and $200 for all seniors. Family members join at a 50% discount for each additional member ie 2 senior members joining the initial fee is only $300
If there is only one of you then the fees are $66 per fortnight. For a family (two or more in the same family at the same address) the fees are only $110 per fortnight. These payments are on a direct debit system as this makes it much easier for us to track payments and gives us more time to teach. These fees can be adjusted for workers who work shifts and can not get to all classes. Additionally, for this fee you may attend one or two different styles classes (except BJJ - see below). For example you can attend both Japanese Jujitsu and Kobudo classes. If you want to attend a third style as well, for example attend Karate classes in addition to Jujitsu and Kobudo, then there is an additional fee of $33 per fortnight. We do also have a 'Class Pass' system for those people that find it difficult to attend regular classes. These can be purchased in 5, 10 and 20 class pass amounts.
There are very few extras. Gradings will happen a few times per year and cost $50 up to but not including black belt. Black belt grading fees are $150 whichever level you are testing for. Seminars are voluntary and so far have varied in price from completely free to possibly several hundred dollars depending on the type and length of the seminar.
BJJ has a slightly different fee structure. For our regular students attending other classes and paying the fortnightly fee to attend other lessons the BJJ classes are $10 per class. For students not attending our regular classes it is $25 per class. These fees are payable in cash on the night and should be given to the BJJ instructor
