Please read the documents and return the signed electronic declaration PDF form to the club before students can train.

Apart from the JinSeiKai Covid-19 risk assessment the club appendix contains a list of extra items that students should bring to each lesson such as indoor training shoes /anti-slip socks and personal sanitising gel

Lesson fees
£7.50  per lesson until the end of October
Unfortunately need to raise the price slightly to help cover costs. 
Single lessons only on Saturday as the double lesson fee will not be sufficient to pay our bills.
At the moment lessons are slightly less than one hour to allow for the time people need to enter and exit in small groups.
As well as putting away equipment we also have to sanitise any equipment that we use before we leave.

This all takes time and although we will become quicker and more efficient it is likely that we will have to book some extra time before and after our lesson in order to have a full hour of training.

At the end of October we will some have lesson options in place to pay for lessons monthly in advance as well as a limited number Pay-Before-The-Day instead of Pay-On-The-Day (POTD).

From November onward there will be several new payment methods available.
