How much does it cost to train?

For any member, a lifetime membership of WAMA (World Alliance of Martial Arts) costs £10, the Shōrinji Kenpō Organisation membership fee costs £10, and the annual insurance costs £10. These costs are non-negotiable as it provides the member with a license and insurance in case of injury.

Training sessions costs are dependent upon employment status and personal situation status. Please get in contact with us if you are unable to pay the costs as you may still be able to train.
