HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?


The good news is that your first lesson is free of charge, so you can see if Karate is for you without losing anything other than some time and a little bit of sweat! After that we ask you to pay a nominal fee of £3 for each session that you attend.

We do not demand "joining fees", payment by direct debit or that you sign up for a set number of lessons. Nor do we insist that you buy a karate suit or other equipment on your first night - normally you will know when you want to buy a suit and fit in with the rest of the class.

What we will want you get as soon as possible, though, is your national Karate licence; mainly because your licence contains an insurance policy to protect both yourself and other club members in case of accidental injury.
