  • Cost for the seminar and kamas is $80. For students who already own a set of Kamas, cost for the seminar only is $35

8-WEEK KAMAS ROTATION:

We have sample Kamas at the front desk if you’d like to take a look. Generally for ordering, students around age 10 and under would likely need the 11 inch Kamas, older students should order size 14, but if you’re unsure which size is best, talk to Mr. A. The colors offered are Red, Blue, Orange, Green, and Pink.

If you have any questions, we’re happy to help!
