- $27 for $90 worth of martial-arts lessons
During martial-arts lessons at St. Louis Ki Aikido, you may progress from a plain white belt to one with more color. How quickly athletes move up the ladder will depend on the teacher, the dojo, and the style, in addition to their skills. They may advance by taking a formal exam with practical, oral, and written sections; they may be asked to spar with students in the next level to prove their readiness; or they may be awarded a different color belt because the old one clashes with their eyes.
