Monthly Club Fees
The cost of your training sessions is spread over the year by setting up a Monthly Standing Order of £25.00 (£15.00 if you are under 18 years of age), which pays for four or five Wednesday training sessions per month. The club’s bank details are in the Welcome Pack which you receive at the start of your training with us.
We keep things simple: there are NO subscription charges or joining fees. You can join at any time of the year. All training fees go towards hall-hire and training seminars, or are put back into the club to pay for equipment such as mats, weapons, and so on.
Aikido does not require expensive outfits or training equipment. After your first two or three training sessions with us, you’ll need to order a training outfit (called a gi) which costs between £15 and £25, depending on your size and style preference. Your club and BAA badges are supplied free, and these just need to be sewn onto the gi.
Training weapons will be required during your training, but these can be purchased at a later date or you can train with the club’s. Our Welcome Pack has all the details and current prices.
When a number of students are ready to progress to the next belt colour, we convene a grading evening and new belts are awarded to those who grade successfully. Gradings cost £15.
