How often should I train?

I often get asked when should a student start training two classes per week?

As you all know, I am not pushy in regards to selling merchandise or upselling students current training programs. However, as the club's Master instructor who has helped thousands of students, I believe all Taekwondo and Haidong Gumdo students who reach the grade of blue belts, should start training two classes per week to help them keep up with the grading criteria. And when the student can commit to more class training, their overall confidence and self-esteem will continue to grow


Wolves Martial Arts Year

Wolves Martial Arts offers classes 43 weeks of the year. Our year is divided into four terms. The term fee for one class per week (43 classes) is $150 per student. Haidong Gumdo students pay by the term and Taekwondo students can either pay by the term or by the month. For Taekwondo students, the term fee of $150 is then broken down to a per month fee of $50. 

This method of charging a monthly fee instead of a term fee every three months, was introduced to reduce large sums of money being debited from the students account every three months (term duration). 

Therefore, for the newer students this will answer the question of do we still pay during school holidays.

All cancellations must be in writing and sent via email wolvestkd@optusnet.com.au or via post to Wolves Martial Arts, PO Box 7323, Leura NSW 2780. 

Please note: No phone cancellations will be accepted.
