Pricing for Group Self-Defense Classes

This page lists prices for group self-defense classes from Culture of Safety.   Prices for public self-defense classes varies by class, but will generally follow the same 3-tiered pricing model that our ongoing karate classes offer (reduced, standard, and supporter) and just like our karate classes, we are committed to removing financial barriers while remaining a viable business.

Pricing for Group Self-Defense Classes

Pricing is available at a group rate or per-participant. Our minimum class size is 8, and the maximum is 20.  Our standard rate for groups is $500* per group, or $50* per person, for a single workshop that is up to two hours.  For 3 hours, the standard rate is $600*, or $60*/person.

Discounts are available for multi-session classes, and for nonprofit organizations and businesses with fewer than 50 employees. If you have fewer than 8 participants, we encourage you to consider a semi-public class. We will always work with you to find a price point that is affordable for you, fair, and congruent with our commitment to equity.

Groups and organizations who would like to be considered for discounted pricing are encouraged to submit a sliding scale request.
