MANY PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CONCERNED WITH THE COST OF JOINING A KARATE OR OTHER MARTIAL ARTS CLUB. THIS MAKES SENSE. HOWEVER, THE COST IS NOT THE MAIN THING IN JOINING A CLUB. I BELIEVE THE MAIN THINGS ARE THAT IT IS RUN BY PEOPLE GENUINELY INTERESTED IN THE LIFE OF THEIR STYLE OF MARTIAL ARTS, WHETHER IT EVOLVES OR STAYS THE SAME, AND PASSES THEIR KNOWLEDGE ONTO THEIR STUDENTS IN A CLEAR AND CONCISE WAY. ALSO THAT THEY FOCUS ON QUALITY OF TEACHING AND NOT JUST THE AMOUNT OF STUDENTS THAT TRAIN WITH THEM EVERY WEEK AND THE GROWTH OF THEIR CLUB. 

REMEMBER, IN THE OLD DAYS, A MASTER PRACTITIONER WOULD CHOOSE JUST ONE PERSON BASED ON THEIR MERIT AND DILIGENCE AND PASS IT ON TO THAT ONE PERSON TO ENSURE THE 'STYLE' CONTINUES.

THAT BEING SAID, HERE IS WHAT WILL BE INVOLVED SHOULD YOU DECIDE THAT YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER WOLD LIKE TO LEARN KARATE WITH US:

FIRST LESSON FREE

PAY AS YOU GO LESSON FEES: £5 PER PERSON 

MOST CLASSES ARE 1 HOUR. FOR EXTENDED LESSONS PLEASE EXPECT TO PAY A LITTLE EXTRA.

ADVANCED PAYMENT SCHEMES:

FOR A BLOCK BOOKING OF 10 LESSONS: £45 SO ONE LESSON WILL BE FREE.

                                                        15 LESSONS: £65 SO TWO LESSONS WILL BE FREE

                                                        20 LESSONS: £85 SO THREE LESSONS WILL BE FREE

YOU WILL BE ISSUED A CARD WHICH WILL BE SIGNED OFF EACH TIME YOU TRAIN SO YOU WON'T NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT LOSING LESSONS IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND AT ANY TIME. IN OTHER WORDS, NO TIME LIMIT!

WE ARE ALSO OPEN TO SETTING UP A STANDING ORDER FOR YOUR TRAINING ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THE COST CAN BE NEGOTIATED BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE UNLIMITED TRAINING AT ANY G.I.F.T. DOJO. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PAY FOR YOUR TRAINING THIS WAY. PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL FOR YOUR OPTIONS.

MEMBERSHIP TO G.I.F.T. MARTIAL ARTS UK: THERE IS CURRENTLY NO JOINING FEE TO G.M.A.U.K. BUT AS WE ARE AFFILIATED TO THE E.G.K.A., YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO OBTAIN A LICENCE AS PART OF THE MEMBERSHIP PROCESS.

AS AN E.G.K.A. LICENCE HOLDER, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEMPT YOUR NEXT BELT GRADE ROUGHLY EVERY 3 -4 MONTHS OR AS YOUR SKILL IMPROVES AND YOUR INSTRUCTOR FEELS THAT YOU ARE READY. YOU CAN ALSO TRAIN AS MANY TIMES PER WEEK AT ANY OF OUR 5 DOJO'S LOCALLY AND ANY OTHER E.G.K.A. DOJO ACROSS THE UK. 

THIS IS A YEARLY PAYMENT AND ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO REGISTER AND BE LICENCED AFTER THEIR FIRST GRADING (TO YELLOW BELT). STUDENTS CAN APPLY FOR THEIR LICENCE ANY TIME BEFORE THIS IF THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO. (PLEASE SEE LINK BELOW OR INQUIRE AT YOUR LOCAL DOJO)

THE DETAILS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE ON THIS LINK: http://egka.org.uk/membership_online-1.php

YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO WEAR A KARATE UNIFORM (GI or DOGI). ALL SIZES ARE AVAILABLE FROM 4 YEARS TO ADULT. BUT, TO BEGIN WITH, LOOSE CLOTHING WILL BE APPROPRIATE AS YOU SETTLE IN.  

GRADE ASSESSMENT: THESE ARE HELD ROUGHLY 3 TO 4 TIMES PER YEAR AND A FEE IS PAYABLE ON THE DAY WHICH INCLUDES THE BELT AND CERTIFICATE OF RANK.
