Once you have started and then complete a beginners course you can then decide if the skill is right for you and if you would like to become a member. This course covers around 16 to 32 hours of training depending how many classes you attend in each location and the aim is to get you to a basic level of understanding so you can identify and develop whats needed as quickly as possible right from the start.
This course has a one time ONLY payment of £30 non refundable paid the night you start, once completed and signed off by your Sifu you will have the option of becoming a member from there to continue your training.
Cost of classes.
After your membership is approved training cost is paid monthly and done on the first of every month by Direct Debit, this cost is £45 a month. this covers all classes every week so gives you access to a total of 6 hours training a week at an average of £1.90 per class. If you are on a family membership for 2 or 4 people from the same family then it is a £70 a month Direct Debit saving your family from £10 to £90 a month on training cost but with all the same benefits for all. Developing each other and preserving the skill to the highest standard possible is more important than money in our school. Costs are always kept as low as possible for this reason, your monthly training fee covers everything needed, all classes costs, grading, access to China training trips, seminars, residential course, insurance and more with no hidden costs. Each class runs for 2 hours.
£25 a year and this covers your school training T - shirt, registration in our lineage. You will not pay your membership until you have finished your beginners course and only if you wish to continue. The time period it takes to complete your beginners course is not set and is up to the teacher to decide when you have shown the correct level of understanding, trust and responsibility. Equally you might not be excepted as a student and asked to leave after a decision is made. Although this will only happen in extreme cases, this is for the safety of the school and its students as we must be responsible and of a sound mind to study this type of skill. after the first year the school t shirt is not included in annual membership costs as this money is used to cover school administration but T - Shirts and more are always available in the school shop.
£40 a year for 2 people from the same family or £70 for 4 and comes with all the same benefits as a standard membership except it saves your family money in membership cost. With the family membership your family saves a total of £130 a year on membership and training cost combined.

What to wear at class.

and trainers for class, there is no need for a full uniform or the
extra cost of having them, after all in the street you will be in
normal clothes so better to practice this way. For full class training
wear specific to Wing Chun if this is preferred please enquire in our
school classes shop for more details.
