FAQ'S

Q. How much is it?
A. The cost of all of our programmes depend on which one is chosen by you and us during an intro session, length of commitment and payment method, i.e. monthly or longer terms.

Q. What times are your lessons?
A. We have a varied and flexible time table which incorporates all age groups and abilities which we discuss during an introduction session where we recommend which programme to select.

Q. I am/my child is nervous about coming for the first time, what can I do?
A. Please don't be worried about contacting us as we are very professional and non- intimidating. A lot of our members felt that way too but are now doing great. We can offer a free private introduction to help with any nervousness. These can be booked at various times to suit your schedule and can be very helpful for a parent that works at the same time as our younger classes but still wish to come together to decide on their children's future training.

Q. How many times do I need to train each week and can I train more if I like?
A. Generally to meet the preferred grading schedule you should train twice a week. We have a choice of programs available to suit your needs, some programs allow you to train as much and as often as you like within your grade rank.

Q. What do I wear?
A. For the initiation class wear something comfortable and lose. Once you become a member you will be given a training uniform and a white belt.

Q. Can I wear my training uniform to and from class?
A. It's up to you, there are changing facilities but a lot of students, especially the younger members, come to the school in their uniform.

Q. Will I be training with people of a similar age and sex?
A. The classes are mixed sex, and separated into Infant, Junior and Teenage/Adult classes. The classes start with the Little Ninjas from the ages of 3.5 years to 7 years, then students progress to the Junior classes up to the age of approx. 14 and from then on to the more senior classes.

Q. I'm 55, am I too old to start training?
A. No, we have students training in their 60's. Obviously if you are not physically fit, you will need to take it easy to start until you are up to speed, but subject to any medical condition precluding you from training, there's no reason why you shouldn't achieve your Black Belt

Q. I can't always train on the same nights, is this a problem?
A. For continuity we would like you to train on regular nights, but we are totally flexible, you can train on other nights or even between the two Schools.

Q. I did Taekwondo some years ago, will I be able to continue at my present grade?
A. Depends on the type of Taekwondo you trained in, generally speaking you will be able to retain your belt grade, but this is subject to assessment.

Q. Will I be expected to fight with Black Belts when I start?
A. Beginners need to achieve a full Yellow Belt before being allowed to spar. Our sparring is semi- contact, i.e. it should make light contact but not with force, and generally you will be sparring students of a similar belt grade.

Q. Taekwondo does loads of fancy kicks but is it useful for self-defence?
A. Yes it does as part of the syllabus for fitness, fun and those who decide that they wish to partake in the sport side of competition. We teach self defence moves and drills that are practical for any situation and that can be applied by everybody.
