Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question that is not addressed here, please feel free to contact us.
Where is the class located?
Victory Karate meets in a private gym and other private locations; location is given only to registered members. New students are welcome, but must be accepted and cleared before joining, which may include background and/or credit check. Enter your information on the right to get a free consultation.
When do you have class?
Class currently meets every Tuesday night. We are off Thanksgiving week, the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Day, and any holidays that might fall on class day. We also have field trips, seminars, and guest instructors, which might alter class meeting times and locations.
If you would like to stop by, it would be best to contact us and see when the next class is. Or you can consult the Victory Karate Facebook page for any changes in class times or locations, or any upcoming events.
What are the costs?
Go here, agree to the terms (make sure you also print out a copy to sign and submit, as you will not be allowed to participate without it) and click submit, then click on the membership you are interested in.
Can I really learn karate with class only meeting once a week?
I've never taken karate or done anything physical before. Can I still join?
Yes! But here's the disclaimer: This is NOT a franchise business for the masses. This is a privately-run, championship-caliber program. The workouts are highly rigorous and demanding. Not everyone has the work ethic, desire, or capacity to do what we do. This is what separates us from the commercial karate business down the street. This doesn't mean that everyone has to be a world-class athlete to participate. In fact, your commitment to train and constantly improve is far more important than any physical abilities (Though a good sense of humor certainly helps). Yes, beginners are welcome. But only those who "fit" will be invited and accepted to train with us. The workouts and curriculum both quickly weed out those who lack the commitment to make themselves and those around them the best they can be (iron sharpens iron).
I am interested in Victory Karate. How do I get started?
Do you have a children's class?
Due to popular demand, we are investigating the plausibility of starting a VKkids program. If you would like to get more information so you can reserve a spot for your child, please make sure you submit your information below:
Can I buy a gift certificate to give to someone so that he/she can join?
I can't make it to the class time, but I would still like to train. Is private training available?
How much do you charge for your classes? for private training?
I noticed a lot of God stuff for this program, and I don't believe in God. Can I still train with you?

Yes. Some previous topics include:
- 30 Days to Being Healthy & Fit!
- Ladies: Be Prepared and Defend Yourself!
- The 3 P's to becoming a champion in everything you do
