Frequently Asked Questions
If the answers below do not solve your questions please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens to my class if there is a 'Local/National Lockdown'?
In the event that Face to Face classes must be temporarily suspended we will replace each class with a Zoom class equivalent on the same day and at the same time where possible.
Will students or staff be required to wear Face Coverings?
No, we do not require staff or students to wear a Face Covering during the class, however you will need to wear one in any other areas of the venue. If you/your child would like to wear one during the class then that is, of course, ok.
What is the difference between a Face to Face and Zoom class (Kids & Youth Kung Fu)?
Students in our Face to Face classes and Zoom classes will both have 50 minute classes that follow the same syllabus. Both the Kids and Youth Kung Fu students can Grade regardless of whether they attend a Face to Face or Zoom class and we will hold a ‘Celebration Week’ in both types of class. Having refined our Zoom classes over the last year we are confident that students in the Zoom classes will still be able to achieve their Kung Fu goals as if they were in the Face to Face classes.
What is the difference between a Face to Face and Zoom class (Adults Classes)?
Our Face to Face classes are 1hr 20 minutes long and follow a termly syllabus which results in grading.
Our Thursday night Zoom Only classes are 50 minutes long:
– Tai Chi looks at one or two individual movements per lesson, focusing on a gradual development and improvement, and to supplement students who attend private training.
– Escrima Concepts is primarily aimed at students who have moved away and want to continue their training, as well as to supplement those in regular classes. As such each week’s training is based on those in attendance.
My child is nervous about coming along to their first lesson. Can you offer any advice?
Feeling nervous is a sign that you are a caring and conscientious person that wants to do well. These are great qualities that we really value at CKF.
Feeling nervous is also an opportunity to be brave & being brave is one of the best things anyone can be!
Can I (Parent/Guardian) watch my child’s class?
Unfortunately we cannot currently have spectators in the room. However you are very welcome to come in with your child and get them settled before you leave. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to leave the site where possible or wait in their private vehicles. If this is not possible there is a Waiting Area at Hills Road Sports and Tennis Centre but this is relatively small and social distancing should be observed.
When your child joined our classes you provided us with contact details. If you are concerned that these may be out of date please let us know.
When and where are your classes held?
You can find links to each of our venues on our Timetable page.
Do I need to buy uniform?
Your Joining Fee includes one t-shirt (or two if you’re an adult training twice a week). You only need to purchase additional ones when you are ready for a new t-shirt. You can find full uniform details here.
Can I do a Catch-Up Class?
You are very welcome to attend Catch-Up Classes if you have to miss a class however these are only available on Zoom (until further notice). Check out our Timetable to see which Zoom Classes are available.
Do you offer any discounts?
As well as the Family and Multi-Class Discounts mentioned on our Pricing page we also offer a 15% Student Discount on production of a valid student card.
”I’m going on an extended break, can I stop paying for my classes while I’m away?”
Our monthly payment structure currently takes into account 6 weeks holiday throughout the year (2 weeks at Christmas and a month taken at other times) whilst allowing Cambridge Kung Fu to operate knowing there is money coming in consistently each month.
What is FuTube?
FuTube is the sister site of CambridgeKungFu.com. It was first created at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide training resources for Cambridge Kung Fu students and it contains a wealth of information for those in our Kids, Youth and Adults classes. It includes follow along classes, workouts, extra concepts and ideas to explore, games, detailed breakdowns of each move within our kids syllabus and much more.
