Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I train?
You can train one night or two. It’s up to you. You will progress faster if you train twice a week.
If I train one night a week will the fees be less?
No. We recover training fees to pay for the use of the venue, for equipment and to help fund training with our Okinawan teachers.. We don’t make any money from it. So we offer you the opportunity to train once or twice a week, and the rest is up to you.
What is the enrollment process?
We are pretty informal. This isn’t a business. We do take safety seriously and have an enrolment form that you are required to fill in, so we have some information about you and so we have somewhere to record things like fees paid. We would like your email address so we can let you know about unforeseen and coming events. We also need to know who to contact in the unlikely event of an accident.
Do my fees include a uniform?
No, fees cover the cost of the venue. If you want to buy a karate uniform go to a martial arts supply shop. In Dunedin that’s limited to Fight Times at 49 Stuart Street
I’ve graded to another belt colour? How do I get a new belt?
