Martial arts lessons typically involve a range of expenses. Some are obvious, some are not.
Usually you should expect to pay for some (or all) of these items:

  1. Monthly tuition fees
  2. Annual membership
  3. Quarterly grading
  4. Affiliation with a third party organisation/federation
  5. Insurance
  6. Licence
  7. Competitions
  8. Uniform
  9. Patches/badges
  10. Equipment/weaponry
  11. Instructional DVDs
  12. Books/training manuals

Many classes expect new students to buy a uniform within a month of starting a class. The new starter is often asked to pay annual membership, insurance and commit to a monthly standing order.
