In business since 1957, Tracy's schools for Martial Arts instruction are the
oldest martial arts schools in California with over 1000 affiliate schools internationally and currently with 4
schools located locally in Vallejo, Fairfield, Vacaville and Davis, CA
offering self-defense, mixed martial arts, and traditional martial arts
instruction, training and competition for the Northern California area, and with more
locations coming soon ...
we DO NOT base our rates on the following several factors which
DO usually change your training costs at most other studios:
All of our
courses include Unlimited Group instruction with 6 days a week
access for you or your whole family.
This means that unlike at many studios, at Tracy's you aren’t limited to only a few days a week of
groups that are for your age or level, or to only a certain day or
time that a class is offered, or that you have to pay extra for you or
your family to attend more or different groups if you’d like.
At our schools you set your own schedule with our convenient drop-in group
schedule. Come once
or twice a week to learn self-defense, or come 3-6 days a week to get
in great shape! And you
can attend just one type of class or every kind of class that we
offer, which means you can learn everything that we offer without
having to pay more to do so.
How many members of your
At Tracy's, it’s the same price at our studios whether it’s just you, or your
whole family. There’s
never an additional charge simply because there’s more than just one
of you in your household who wants to train. We feel you shouldn't be
punished financially because you want your whole family to benefit
from martial arts training.
of instruction (belt level or skill level).
We abhor the idea of having to pay more money just so that you can
move up in level of instruction, or having a permanent rate increase
because you are learning more advanced material, and especially not
being allowed to advance until you pay a fee.
At our schools, you will NEVER have to pay a fee in order to
advance to your next belt (knowledge) level or skill level (often
referred to as “Testing
Fees”, which are an additionally required separate fee from you
monthly dues, and are per family member; and increase or become more
expensive the higher the belt level). Nor is advancement at Tracy's ever based on time or attendance
(at most studios you
must attend a minimum number of group classes per week or you can not
advance until a certain number of classes or time has passed).
At Tracy's, your advancement is based solely on the time-honored tradition of knowledge
to sign a long-term contract (1+ years or more), and usually with a 3rd
party billing/finance company.
Often the price you are quoted at most
martial arts schools requires signing a very long-term contract
(usually a minimum of 1 year and up to 3-5 years) in order to get that
price. We don’t feel you should have to make such
long-term commitments in order to get an affordable rate, and we
strongly disagree with such ideas in regards to children under the age
of 12. Such contracts are
also usually non-refundable—you have basically taken out a “loan” for
your lessons (the studio gets paid in full in advance, minus a
percentage, and you are making your “loan” payments to a finance
company). At Tracy’s,
you are dealing directly with us, and you have the options of paying
as you go or paying ahead to save more money … the choice is yours.
Tracy's only bases our rates on the

We feel people learn best
individually, and they practice and try their hardest and get the best
workout in groups. It is for
this reason that all courses and packages in our studios not only include
unlimited group instruction for you or your entire family, but also include some
individual, private instruction (family
classes or if you prefer 1-on-1 for each family member) to compliment the group
practices and workouts, something which most martial arts schools
either do not offer at all or you must pay a great deal extra in order to
receive, and then it is only for the select few.
The only difference in our training
packages is the frequency of private instruction and which payment method
you prefer. We offer an
introductory package of 4 private lessons to get you started which allows
you to evaluate the quality of our instruction as well as prepares you for
the group classes and more advanced training after the introductory
lessons. This introductory
package is only $89.50, and can be set up or scheduled by appointment any
time or frequency during our business hours.
Our least expensive program after the introductory course includes
2 private classes per month and requires no time commitment, allowing you
to pay as you go, all for about $27.50 per week.
One step up is our most popular program, increasing the frequency
of private lessons to once per week, giving you more than double the
private lessons (4-5 per month compared to 2 times per month) starting at
only $7.50 per week more*. This
program gives you the best value. We
offer many further customizable programs if you would like to receive even
more amounts of private instruction beyond the minimums we recommend.
If you’d like to get started on our
introductory trial program, or would like to talk to an instructor and get
