Do you offer free introductory classes to new students?

Yes we do. Your first couple of lessons are free of charge so that you can give our classes a good try and then hopefully you will want to continue training us.

What should my child wear to classes?

If your child is attending trial lessons then they should wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes such as jogging bottoms and a t-shirt. Our Kids Classes are bare-foot, those in Youth Kung Fu should wear trainers. If your child decides they want to continue coming to classes then they should wear their Kung Fu uniform which is paid for by the Joining Fee.

What should my child bring to classes?

Your child will need to bring a bottle of water with them to our classes. We would politely request that they do not bring fizzy drinks or juices as these can damage floors and other children's clothes/shoes etc. if they get spilled.

Is there parking available at the class venue?

Yes, there is parking at all of our class venues and full details are available on our Venues page.

Will my child get hit or 'spar' with other children?

All our Kids Classes are non-contact. Once your child reaches Junior Warriors age they may begin some light contact work in the form of Kung Fu drills, however these do not involve punching or kicking one another. In Youth Kung Fu your child will study Wing Chun Kung Fu, this involves contact but is introduced to those who have the maturity to control their bodies appropriately.

Yes there is a Joining Fee when your child joins which is £55. The Joining Fee pays for uniform and their first year's membership and insurance.

Can I watch my child's class?

Yes, absolutely, we would love you to stay and watch how much fun your child is having in our classes! We do just politely request that you switch off/silence your mobile phone and that you keep conversation to a minimum. We also ask that you do not interfere with the running of the class. In some circumstances, due to room size for example, viewing classes may not be practical; please chat to an Instructor if you are unsure.

I am really interested in getting my child involved in your classes, what should I do?

Contact Us to find out our latest availabilities and arrange with him for your child to try a few classes for free. If your child enjoys their trial classes then pick up a Welcome Pack from one of our Instructors; it contains everything you will need to sign your child up. Complete the pack and return it to one of our Instructors. Simple!

What is 'Grading'?

Each term the Little Dragons, Junior Warriors and Snow Leopards will learn a Form (a sequence of moves) based on a different martial art, they will also learn about that martial art i.e. where it originates from, who developed it etc. At the end of the term they will be assessed (Graded) on their ability to remember the moves of the form, the names of the moves and their knowledge of the martial art. We do not grade Micro Monkeys or Tiny Tigers. In Youth Kung Fu your child will study Wing Chun Kung Fu and will work their way through the syllabus grading at different levels as they progress. For more information please see the 'Syllabus' sections on the Micro Monkeys, Tiny Tigers, Little Dragons, Junior Warriors, Snow Leopards and Youth Kung Fu pages.

What is a 'Ceremony'?

The ceremony is an extra special class that is held for each age group at the end of every term. We invite family and friends to attend which gives the kids a chance to show off what they've achieved that term. It involves playing some games, demonstrating the form, receiving their badge and certificate then usually finishing with a demonstration from either our Youth or Adult programme. There is more info on our 'More about Grading and Ceremonies' page.

Do you offer private tuition?

Yes, we do offer private lessons in all the arts we teach. The cost of these ranges from £10 - £35 per hour depending on the Instructor you choose. You can also buy these in bulk and save yourself some money.
