Lessons Info

Times and Prices:

Lessons are generally given between the hours of 3:00 and 9:00 pm Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I try to be very flexible with your lesson times as I realize everybody has a different schedule and availability. To that end, lessons can be done several different ways:

30 min. every week (4 lessons per month ) $100

1 hour every other week ( 2 lessons a month ) $100.

1 hour every week ( 4 lessons per month ) $180

*There is a $20 discount for people taking an hour a week.

Gift Certificates are available.

Small Group Lessons

In addition to private lessons, I also offer small group lessons for people who prefer to learn with a friend or two or generally enjoy the fun atmosphere that comes from learning in a small group environment.

Lesson Policy

  • Students must be at least 10 years of age
  • Payment for lessons is expected in full the first lesson of every month unless prior arrangments have been made with me personally. There will be $10 late fee for payments made after the second lesson of the month. Payments can be made in person or mailed to me directly. Here’s the address: 4950 Cherry  Creek Parkway S., Columbus, OH 43228
  • It is always possible to reschedule your lesson with 24-hour notice of your regularly scheduled lesson time. No shows and students cancelling with out notice are not entitled to a make-up lesson and should not deduct money from any future payments. It should be understood that you are paying for a block of my time and are expected to attend regularly to get the most out of your lessons.
  • If your lesson day should fall on a 5th week of the month, there will be no lessons on that day. Lessons will resume the following week as usual. I like this because it gives everybody a break and a chance to play justified hookey, ha!
  • If for any reason I have to cancel I will provide a substitute teacher in my place or will automatically credit you for the lesson I have missed.
  • Parents are encouraged to sit in on any and all lessons and my door is always open.
  • Bribing the teacher to see past your failure to practice can be facilitated through careful use of Sweet Tea, Starburst, anything carmel, and or converstaions about martial arts.
