5.) Do I have to sign a contract?
No, we don’t believe in contracts…we want girls to come because they want to, not because they are contractually obligated.
6.) Can I visit before enrolling?
We encourage you (and your daughters) to visit our dojo. We have an “open door” policy and welcome all spectators. Check the “free pass to class” tab for the next scheduled open house.
7.) What should my child wear?
When visiting our dojo during an open house, girls should wear comfortable clothes (shorts and tank tops are not allowed) and we train bare footed. Once enrolled, girls will wear uniforms; included with registration fee.
8.) How do I choose a karate school that’s right for us?
WKD Karate 4 Girls suggests visiting our dojo before enrollment to ensure that your daughter is comfortable with the atmosphere, students and instructor. Parents should also visit to determine whether we meet your expectations and share with the instructor your reasons for considering enrollment.

We train girls 4-18 years old and adults.
10.) Do all ages and levels train together?
No, our Pre K(arate) Program includes 4-6 years old. And our Karate for Girls Program includes 7-18 years old. (beginner and intermediate/ advance classes are available). Women train separately (see class schedule below).
