Although training fees are based on students training two days of the week, those who prefer to train more can pay an additional fee for the third day. The karate program is taught in pre-scheduled sessions based on historical periods which account for Christmas, Spring Break and so on. Since the sessions vary in duration the fees also vary by session. Please contact the West Vancouver Rec Centers for the current session dates and fees.
ORGANIZATION AND ASSOCIATION DUES
Those that continue in their karate club training and test for higher belts will be required to pay modest additional fees for membership in SportBC sanctioned KarateBC and for the International Shotokan Karate Federation. Please discuss with your instructor.
