If you are shopping for a martial arts school please first compare our Instructor’s experience, background, our highly effective and practical martial art style before comparing our prices to the other schools in the area. We are not the average martial arts school. Our prices reflect the Instructor’s extensive experience, the martial art style and the quality of the training. We teach an “exclusive to the state” and much higher level blend of martial arts with a lot more material than than just punching and kicking techniques. Please look through the rest of our website and then check out some of our 5 star reviews.

All trial students get one week free in any martial arts style we teach. Get a uniform 50% off when you sign up.

Southern School of Martial Arts, McGee’s Crossroads NC. 2022 tuition prices. 

Due to the rising cost of electricity, gas, building insurance, uniforms, dojo supplies and other overhead costs we have had to raise our tuition $10.00 per month to cover the increased costs. This is our first raise in general tuition since 2013.

Little Ninja class (preschool, ages 3 to 5) $89.95 per month. No contract.

Basic and Beginners Children’s Kobushi-Do class, (ages 6 to 12) $109.95 per month.

Basic and Beginners Teen and Adult class, Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu and Bujinkan Ninjutsu (ages 13 and up) $119.95 per month (full 1.5 hour classes).

We can not match a community center’s martial arts program price. Most of these programs are run by low ranking black belts or brown belts with less than 5 of experience. They also don’t have to pay building rent or any overhead costs.

The Leadership Program, Black Belt Club Program, Instructor program and the Masters Program are all upgrades in training. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for more information.

At Southern School of Martial Arts we have a high ranking 10th degree black belt that is also the Soke (head of the martial arts system) teaching 98% of all the classes. You pay for a highly skilled and experienced teacher. At our school you get the best of the best. When comparing schools please just don’t compare prices; compare experience, knowledge, background and years in business, (May 2021 was our 25th year in business).

There’s a lot more to martial arts than learning how to punch and kick, anyone can teach that. If you want to learn more than just how to punch and kick we can teach you so much more.

The Grandmaster has high ranking black belts in Ju-Jitsu, Ninjutsu, Aikido and Judo. Our students learn from all these arts. They also learn from several other arts that Grandmaster has extensive experience in. Russian Martial Arts, Krav Maga, Karate, JKD, Eskrima and Kali. There’s also many various weapons techniques taught within our system. Our system is a specialized self defense system and not really meant for sport or competition. However it can be modified for those wanting to use it for sport. 

Active Military, Police, EMS and Fire discounts available as well.

The prices above are for the basic programs. There’s no contracts required for these programs. This is a basic month to month training program. We do have family discounts for families of two or more for the basic programs and the advanced programs.

We have a Leadership Program, Black Belt Club Program, Instructors Program and Masters Program that offers higher level training, more advanced techniques, leadership training, instructor training, (assistant through level 4 Instructor), unlimited training, includes all leadership classes and workshops. These programs cost a little more but are worth it in the long run. These programs are upgrades to the starter/basic program and do require a commitment.

These programs include a free uniform, free Federation membership, free training manual, free workshops and select seminars, free training videos, free unlimited belt testing up to black belt itself and then discounted testing above black belt and upgraded belt rank certificates that are 11″x17″ with the Federation and Soke Murdock’s gold seal.

During the first month of training the student will be evaluated by Soke Murdock for eligibility to enroll in the more advanced programs. The student must have the drive and desire to train, along with good skill and good behavior to be eligible for these programs.

Once eligible the student may enroll in these higher level programs. These programs are for the serious martial artist only. Students of these programs will strive to achieve a black belt and go beyond and achieve degrees of black and then become instructors of the art. We have a Master program starting soon. We also have a Soke-Dai (Inheritor of Martial Art Style) program that will start once we have students that are eligible for the program.
