The monthly fees are the main expense for club members. We offer 3 packages to suite a range of needs. The main thing to consider is that students who attend more classes and train hard will be rewarded by progressing up the grades more quickly. This will give students even greater confidence, respect in and outside of the DOJO.

As a professional instructor I recognise that all student’s needs are different and therefore student grades are awarded by considering a range of factors:

  • attendance frequency
  • technical abilities
  • personal progress
  • attendance of special events such as tournaments

See the syllabus for details on the grades (belt colours) and how students are assessed.

Packages

Zen

“Wise and skilled”

Kids £15 / Adults £20 per month

1 class per week

This package is ideal for beginners but will take longer to progress up the grades, typically taking 1 or 2 gradings per year

Ronin

“Strong spirit and courage

Kids £20 / Adults £25 per month

2 classes per week (any class)

Most students aim to train at least twice per week and will improve at a good pace through the grades, typically taking gradings 2 or 3 times per year

Samurai

“Master of the sword”

Kids £35 / Adults £40 per month

3 or 4 classes per week

1 private class per month

This package will allow faster learning and progression

A 20% family discount is applied to the monthly fees when 2 or more members from the same family join.

Licences and EGKA membership

*Licencing systems are mandatory for martial arts schools and its members. One of the main reasons is because it includes insurance to protect club members and the instructor. The other purpose is to fund our association. Our club is a EGKA member, which is a non-profit organisation but relies on student licencing to fund the running of the organisation, organising events and other activities.
