Important Information


No Contracts:

The Magnolia Karate Academy enrollment structure is unique from other dojos in that you are not required to sign a contractual agreement for participation. Our training program stresses that courtesy, respect and responsibility are essential to successful human relations. Keeping tuition/membership current and making a commitment to training are intrinsic qualities of our students and families with or without a contract.

Tuition Calculation:

Tuition is calculated for the entire year and is broken up to spread out the costs evenly across 12 months of instruction taking into account several factors such as type of classes, age, number of days of instruction, holidays, winter, spring, and summer breaks, planned absences, and a couple of unplanned absences. Payments are due quarterly to provide the dojo and the students with predictable schedules, class participation and financial planning.

Registration Fees:

There is a one time registration fee of $90.00 that is good for the length of your membership with Magnolia Karate Academy. That said, if you skip one or more quarters your length of membership is broken and you must pay a new registration fee to enroll for a new quarter. For example, if you skip summer quarter and don’t pre-pay for September then you forfeit your space in the fall class.

Tuition Payments:

Tuition is paid quarterly and can be mailed or paid in person at the dojo. Payments are due by or on the 1st day of the quarter. Please make your check/money order payable to Magnolia Karate Academy. The mailing address is 3310 W McGraw St. Seattle, WA 98199.

Family Tuition Discount:

We encourage family participation.  Parents who train with their children can provide them with visible role models of integrity, work ethics and discipline. A 25% tuition discount is applied to the second family member.

Missed Classes:

Missed classes due to illness or scheduling conflicts are not uncommon. Students can make up class time by practicing extra at home as well as making arrangements with Sensei to drop in another class when space is available.

Safety Equipment:

Required Safety equipment for sparing is separate from tuition. You can purchase your equipment from the dojo or via Kensho International website.

Promotion Fees:

Promotion fees are included in the tuition fee. Promotions are based on skill level attendance and attitude in class.

Tournaments and Fees:

Tournament participation is voluntary. All fees and paperwork associated with tournaments are the responsibility of the participant/s and/or their family. The tournament registration forms include payment information, rules of the tournament etc.
