Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Can I try Class before I sign up?

    Yes! Our No Obligation Trial really is "No Obligation". We want you to be sure that what we offer and what you need are congruent. If so, you are welcome to become a member after your trial is up.

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!


What Our Members Have To Say

We think our Programs ROCK! But what about actual Members?

Sensei Feldt is an excellent instructor. He is great with the kids- young and old. My daughter truly enjoys karate and learns self defense techniques that she can use in real world situations. My daughter has attended for two years now, and still looks forward to each lesson.

Samurai Karate Studio has been recognized as the Best of Columbia in martial arts instruction for several years in a row. They specialize in teaching fitness, self defense, character and leadership skills to children and adults, ages 4 and up. In addition to their karate classes, they host stranger danger, anti-bullying and self defense workshops throughout the year!

Chris F.

I would encourage all young women that are headed to college to attend one of these workshops. Chris and his son were knowledgeable and professional about safety concerns for young women and I feel better prepared to head off to college.
