You get what you pay for
People occasionally express reservations about the commercial structure of GKR Karate. The organization is unapologetic for this approach. We believe that a professional service costs money. Our prices are comparable to most other moartial arts styles, yet we offer a vastly more extensive service. The money that students pay to train, grade, attend events and buy merchandise contributes to the huge international infrastructure that puts on regular local, regional, national and international events. At these events, students can compete with each other, meet the most senior instructors and mix with other students from far and wide. In most GKR regions, members can walk in off the street and train at a local club every single evening of the week. It's fantastic to feel as if you are part of a truly global martial arts style and we believe that this level of organization and service is something that students appreciate and are prepared to pay a fair price for.
