At River Valley Tae Kwon Do, we offer several scheduling, location, and payment plans so our students can choose an option that suits their life and budget.

Click one of the tabs below to see the range of costs associated with training at our different schools. These range from free (Chester, Vermont) to discounted training for students who train at both our home dojang in Florence, MA and our first school at the Northampton Athletic Club.

Martial Arts Training at the Northampton Athletic Club

River Valley Tae Kwon Do was founded at the Northampton Athletic Club in 1997. We appreciate that the area’s leading health club has been such a gracious host over those years, and we continue to maintain a close strategic partnership with the NAC.

This relationship takes two forms:

  • three weekly Tae Kwon Do classes at the Northampton Athletic Club. there is no extra cost for Tae Kwon Do classes at the NAC, beyond club membership fees ($57/month with EFT). see our class schedule for days and times of these martial arts classes in Northampton.
  • a reciprocal membership discount: students who are members of both organizations get a discount of $10-15/month on their RVTKD membership dues and a discount of $5-10/month for their membership at NAC.

Click the ‘Home Dojang in Florence’ tab to see details of discounted memberships at RVTKD for Northampton Athletic Club members.


In addition to monthly membership dues, there are some costs involved in training within our school. Some are optional, others are required. These are:

  • students are asked to purchase a dobok (practice uniform), belt, and school patch after several weeks of classes. we charge wholesale costs plus a small percentage to offset sales tax and inventory costs. this means our students wear higher quality uniforms at a lower cost than if purchased anywhere online or at a retail store.
  • when the Master of our Ji Do Kwan school attends rank tests, usually once each year, we pay the expenses involved in having him visit our school. this is not a “testing fee” but rather a way of showing hospitality for a distinguished instructor who has given many decades of service to our school. these costs generally range from $5-20 per student. in cases of individual financial hardship, these contributions may be waived with permission of an instructor.
  • when invited by an instructor, usually after 3-4 years of training, students may purchase padded gear for use while sparring with contact.
  • upon reaching the Dan (black belt) ranks, students must pay for their Kukkiwon certification papers. these costs start at $95 for Il Dan (first degree black belt) with costs increasing at higher Dan levels.
  • the school may occasionally organize retreats, field trips, seminars, or other special events. these events are always optional, and students are asked to help cover their costs.
  • we sometimes create T-shirts, hoodies, bumper stickers, or other items as students request. purchase of these items is always optional.
