Monthly Group Classes

At Jin Sei Ryu Chicago, we are proud to offer both Tiered and Household pricing in order to maximize affordability for students and families.  Both are part of our commitment to equity  We believe that everyone should be able to learn karate, regardless of their (or their family’s) financial means.  We are proud of the quality of instruction we deliver, and trust our members to choose the tier that makes sense for their circumstances.  Learn more about both tiered and household pricing below.

Tiered Structure

We offer 3 tiers of payment: Reduced, Standard, and Supporter.  We offer this PDF document as guidance for those who aren’t sure what to choose, but it’s ultimately up to each individual.  We trust individuals and families to choose the tier that is best for them.  We don’t require any documentation of financial need, and families and individuals are free to change their tier at any time.  Just let us know, and we’ll make the adjustment effective your next due date.  Some students or families find that even the Reduced Tier places too much of a burden on their finances, and for those we are usually able to make special arrangements.  Others have found that they can afford to pay more than the Supporter rate, and we happily accept that, knowing that it will offset those who need extra reductions.

Household Pricing

Multiple members of a household get household pricing.
Mom and kids who train together!

The family that trains together, smiles together.  Families with multiple household members may take advantage of our household pricing.  Choose your tier for the first training member (Reduced, Standard, or Supporter).  Additional members from the same household can then also join for approximately $25 more per month.  We know that families  and households come in all sorts of configurations, and we want to support the whole household in feeling safer, stronger, and more self-confident!  We define a “household” as a group of people who live together and pool their financial resources.  So most married couples and committed partners would qualify as a household (since they pool financial resources), but most roommates would not.
