There are no contracts to sign, or direct debits at Walsall Karate dojo, class fees are simply paid for four weeks in advance by standing order. The payment is controlled by the student and is simply cancelled if training stops and there is no comeback from the dojo. Attendance is tracked and if any lessons are missed we allow for these classes to be made up at any time. We have classes 6 days a week leaving members lots of opportunities to catch up any missing classes.
Unlike other karate clubs, we have no membership charge or upfront joining charge, just payment of class fees. Payment of the four-weekly standing order fee ensures membership also entitling the student access to any events (free or paid) held by the school.
Training costs are non-transferable and non-refundable. Should you stop training it is your responsibility to cancel all standing orders in favour of Walsall Karate Dojo.
If three or more immediate family members join, a discount of 50% will be applied to the cheapest member(s) fees.
There is an option to make an annual/bi-annual payment of monthly training fees by cash or cheque.
£7 per class, paid prior to training.
