No training Tuesday 9th November

The school is hosting an event on the evening of 9th November, so the school hall is not available for us to train in. The session on Tuesday 9th November is therefore cancelled. Training on Sunday 7th at Crawshawbooth library and Thursday 11th at the AB&D centre are still available. Please try to make it to one of these sessions.

Sunday training

I am pleased to announce that Sunday training will resume from September 5th at a new location. The community hall at Crawshawbooth Library has kindly offered their space for us to train there on Sunday between 10am and 12pm. Sensei Rick Payne will be leading the class. I hope you can take advantage of this extra training session.

For £35 per month (from 1st September) you can now train up to three times per week.  A Parent can also train for free if they pay for their child with the unlimited monthly training fee. We will also cap a families monthly training fee at £85 for up to 5 family members.

Payment of £6 per person per session will apply to those members who do not wish to take up the unlimited monthly training option.

September price update

The unlimited monthly training fee is back.

For £35 per month (from 1st September) you can now train up to three times per week.  A Parent can also train for free if they pay for their child with the unlimited monthly training fee. We will also cap a families monthly training fee at £85 for up to 5 family members.

Payment of £6 per person per session will apply to those members who do not wish to take up the unlimited monthly training option.

Training from week beginning July 19th

With the restrictions for class sizes being removed, you now no longer need to use the booking system to reserve your training place. We are still not able to have spectators in the Backup dojo due to its limited space, but we can now welcome spectators back at the Haslingden dojo as this is a much bigger space and has benches available to sit on.

If you or your immediate family have any symptoms you MUST not attend class, you must self isolate at home and get tested.

We will continue with covid protection procedures for the foreseeable future. Temperature checks will still be done for all students, instructors and spectators. Telephone numbers must be provided for track and trace use. Regular use of hand sanitiser (please bring your own for personal use) during the class for when any contact is made between students during kumite or when using training aids. Payment by contactless card.

When we receive further guidance from the KUGB, we will adopt that guidance and inform our students in the class of the new guidance.

 

June pricing update

We have reviewed our pricing for sessions and we can now offer the following incentives.

Standard session pricing remains at £6 per person, no membership fee.

We have introduced a monthly membership scheme to encourage training with family groups. A £5 per calendar month per person fee is paid on the first session in that month. This entitles the member to a training fee of £5 per session for the rest of the month. So the first session will cost £10, but the rest for the month each session  will cost £5. This is good value if you want to train more than once a week.

If you are training with one of your children, then after each paying the monthly fee, the parent can train for free when they pay for their child or children. So for a parent and one child, you will pay £15 for the first monthly session, then £5 per session for the rest of the month.

We also have the family group training monthly member option for up to four siblings. Each family member pays the £5 monthly membership fee, then each session for up to four siblings is £10 per session. So the first session will cost £30, then for the rest of the month it will be £10 per session.

It should be noted that we cannot offer any refunds on the monthly membership fee should you be unable to train for any reason.

You can decide at anytime in the month to take up the membership offer, but its better to take up at the start of the month.

Training update

A message to our members.

Whilst the 12th April changes to the covid restrictions means we could possibly run a very limited children’s only class at Bacup, the committee has decided to wait until the DCMS has formally approved karate as a combat sport, so we can return to a more normalized training regime when we do reopen.

The DCMS is the government department that is responsible for sport and return to play guidance during the covid pandemic. Please refer to the government guidance at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-grassroots-sports-guidance-for-safe-provision-including-team-sport-contact-combat-sport-and-organised-sport-events for the most up to date information.
