How much does it cost to train?
We are a not-for-profit school and all our instructors are volunteers. We teach because we love it. This is why we're able to offer an affordable sliding scale. Students pay anywhere between $45-80 per month to train up to 3 classes per week.
I've never done martial arts, is it safe?
Very safe! We spend a lot of time on safe contact levels as appropriate for each belt level.
How do I begin?
If you're interested in training, please come watch a class. That way you can get a sense of us, how we train and our style. We train hard, have fun and truly enjoy each other's company. Wild Cranes train with light hearts, but serious intent!
Does it cost money to test for each belt level?
No, you only pay your monthly dues and that's it. We never charge money for belt tests. People are tested only when they are ready. For Wild Cranes, tests are a celebration and demonstration of your knowledge.
Where are you located?
Our studio is located on the border of Berkeley and Oakland, just 10 minutes walking distance from Ashby BART. If you bike, you can park your bicycle inside our school.
Can kids train at your school?
We are an adult school and the age minimum is 18.
