Classes are scheduled regularly throughout the year; students choose the most appropriate payment/attendance plan to suit their circumstances, and pay by standing order. All fees are non-refundable. Please note that the Academy will be closed on bank holidays and for approximately 20 working days each year.
There may be times when you do not attend classes. In this instance, as with a gym membership, your payment plan would remain fixed. If you wish to stop attending classes altogether however, you are under no contract, and may cancel your standing order and membership at any point – out of courtesy though, please just let me know.
Occasionally a student will anticipate an extended absence from training (more than 2 months e.g. pregnancy, work abroad, long-term injury/illness), but still want to remain part of the school. In this instance they have the option to make a maintenance payment of £30 per month to continue their membership. A student who chooses to terminate his/her membership will need to re-register to resume training. Absence for more than 2 years requires re-testing from white belt level.
How to join our London martial arts school
Most people like to watch a class before signing up, and you would be welcome at any of our advertised sessions. If you’d like to have a chat with the instructor before a class then it’s useful to arrive 15mins before the start.
If we have given you sufficient information you are welcome to enrol on your first visit. We accept cash or cheque (sorry no credit/debit cards), and you will need to complete a short enrolment, insurance and standing order form. Please bring suitable clothes (sweat pants, t-shirt) for your first class – we’ll figure out your uniform size and bring that along for your next lesson.
Our London school is predominantly an adult environment, but children over 14 years old are welcome to join.
Testing and special events
We test students for new belts/ranks three times per year. Grandmaster Chang continues to support the London school by travelling to the UK to conduct tests with Master Tammy Parlour. In addition to this, we run an annual intensive weekend, special seminars and master classes throughout the year.
Joining the school is also a great way to meet people; and we have social events throughout the year.
