Why is Champions NW so inexpensive compared to other martial art schools
Champions NW doesn't own a brick and mortor building. Instead, we rent buildings such as schools, lodges and clubs (boys&girls) to host our classes. Champions NW doesn't pay a mortgage or lease and aditional things like water, garbage, electricity and sewer. As a result, we are able to pass on the savings to our students.
