Are there any additional costs to your martial arts training?
In addition to monthly membership fees, there is an annual fee. This fee covers membership in our parent organization, Capital Aikikai as well as contributions to dojo maintenance. The invoices for this fee are normally billed in the Spring.
Should you want to do so, you can test for rank through our dojo and/or Capital Aikikai. Payment for testing is handled at the time of testing. Testing costs for colored belts is $20 (payable to Arundel Aikikai). Testing for Kyu (white belt rankings) or Dan (black belt) rank is handled through Capital Aikikai. Testing for Kyu rank is generally $30, while Dan testing is generally around $200. However, check their website for most recent prices and testing schedules if you’re interested in learning more.
You can also purchase supplies through our Dojo. Payment for supplies such as Gi or weapons is done via invoice, and handled by purchase.
I hope this can be useful for you. As always, contact us if you have any questions or concerns and we will be happy to connect you to answers!
