Memberships

Everyone is welcome at KMC Chicago, whether a member or not. Non-members simply pay per-class. But starting a monthly membership is a wonderful way to directly support our efforts to increase peace and happiness throughout Chicagoland and the Midwest. And there are also some significant benefits for you!
