Fee structure and information
1. INTRODUCTORY LESSON
You may partake in an introductory lesson, which we believe is the best way for you to know whether training in the Academy is for you.
You are very welcome to join in and attend a trial class at any time. The cost of a casual lesson is $19 - which we would deduct off the cost of any membership programme that you sign up to.
Note that beginners are not 'thrown into the deep end', but are taken aside by one of our senior students and shown the basics (right from how to make a fist correctly) all at their own pace. New students who have some martial arts experience are fast tracked according to their ability.
To arrange an introductory first lesson offer please contact us via any of the methods set out here.

Term advance payments (when paid up-front at start of term)
There are no classes on public holidays, the Easter weekend and the period between Christmas Eve and New Year (inclusive). Adults’ and teenagers’ classes continue to be held during school and university holidays but the children’s class is only held during the school terms.
5. FAMILY DISCOUNTS
A 10% discount applies on fees to all family members (living under the one family household income) that join for the same period.
6. REFUNDS AND CREDITS
Please note that membership can be temporarily suspended or a credit given only when a student has given written notice of his/her intention to discontinue training - in advance. Any fees paid are non-refundable and in the event of a temporary suspension of membership the period of membership will be extended by the length of the suspension.
Whenever possible, financial matters should be discussed with the instructor before a problem arises.
Payment for the 3, 6 or 12 month advance payment or an 8 lesson credit can be made by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer. Cheques should be made out to: Bayswater Martial Arts & Yoga Centre.
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payments can be made directly into our account:

8. UNIFORMS & EQUIPMENT
The Academy uniform (GI) consists of a special diamond patterned blue jacket, elasticized blue pants and appropriate colour belt. An Academy T-shirt may be worn to most training sessions instead of a jacket (but not to gradings or certain courses). No footwear is worn. Uniforms, T-shirts, martial arts weapons and equipment are available from the dojo.
9. SPECIAL EVENTS
An intensive training course and gashuku (training camp) are usually held annually. These events are both one week in duration and no normal classes are held during these periods. The cost of these events is in addition to the usual tuition fees.
