Tuition

Once you are accepted in this special program you will be moving through a unique system like no other individual out there!  While the other ants are marching and sheeple are lost at dead-end jobs or wasting time and a significant amount of money at universities and technical colleges – you will become educated at one of the most empowering professions available and creating lasting change within the students you come in contact with.

Not only will our program give you the skills you need in the real world to be incredibly successful – we will guarantee your job placement with us once you complete everything to proper standard!  Yes, we said it! If you can get through our program we will guarantee to hire you on a full-time basis and of course we will put that in writing!

The only other place you now need to look at is your heart and decide if Hwa Rang Do could truly be your calling…. And if the answer is yes, well, what are you waiting for!

**If you are a current HRD or TSD student from any location, we will consider a prorated $ amount based on your rank, experience, & skill.  Must discuss based on your individual specific situation and you would be expected to apprentice full time here at the Minneapolis Academy.


In addition to the base tuition there are some other fees and responsibilities that participants will have to cover on their own as you progress through the program.  These items are:

  • WHRDA Belt Testing Fees
  • WHRDA Annual Membership Renewals
  • Sparring Equipment
  • Weapon Fighting Armor
  • Seminar Registration Fees
  • Tournament Registration Fees
  • Additional Weapons as needed
  • Additional Uniforms as needed
  • Additional Books as needed

If you have any hesitation at the amount of the tuition for this program, please consider what you would pay for any university or technical program that IS NOT guaranteeing your job at the end of it.  Also, to move through our martial art program with full access to the school and all types of our classes you would end up paying close to this amount over the 10+ years it takes you to get to Hwa Rang Do 1st Degree Black Sash if you were a regular student.  So, of course our program is an investment!  It is an investment in both of our futures that will be paid off in probably 6-10 months (depending on position you seek and qualify for) once you graduate the program and are working for our organization in the area of your choice!

Once again, nothing of value is achieved without sacrifice, and only those who are committed find meaningful success.

We are not looking for exceptions, we are looking for those who are exceptional!
