Membership Rules, Terms & Conditions and information about your data

As a student of Cardiff Martial Arts, I understand that:

• a Martial Art is physical and will sometimes involve contact with instructors, students, competitors and objects.

• there is a risk of injury in learning and practising Martial Arts.

• JEWELLERY is not allowed during training; all watches, bracelets, piercings, necklaces etc., must be removed.

• I shall not hold Cardiff Martial Arts or any of instructors or students liable for any injury that I may sustain whilst learning and/or practising Martial Arts.

• I must abide by the rules of Cardiff Martial Arts, as set out here, should I be accepted as a member.

• my monthly training fee is based on a 48 week year. There are no classes on bank holidays.

• that as a parent of a student, I will not simply drop my child off in the car park, but take them into the training hall, thereby ensuring that the class is running and preventing the child from being left without proper supervision. I will also collect my child promptly when the lesson has finished.

• I must train on a regular basis in order to be eligible for a grading.

• grading is a privilege earned by regular training as well as successful improvement in technique and ability.  The opportunity to grade is not simply a right bought by monthly fees. Cardiff Martial Arts is committed to promoting excellent martial artists and those students who do not fulfil minimum training requirements will not be considered for a grade promotion.

• I will pay my monthly training fees by direct debit; there must be a direct debit in place for my space in the class to be guaranteed. If I cancel the direct debit my place in the class is void.

• After the trial period, I will purchase uniform and kit as laid out in the joining form. Only approved uniform and approved kit is allowed.

• From time to time, our fees will increase. We shall provide a reasonable notice period before making the increase, and you will be notified by email.

• During unprecedented times, such as a pandemic, classes will be held over video conferencing platforms, such as Zoom.

• I will give one months notice should I decide to stop training and it is my responsibility to cancel the direct debit; should I forget to cancel, no refund will be given.

• All safety equipment (i.e. sparring gloves, boots, helmet etc) must be bought through the instructor.  I understand that only approved equipment will be allowed.
