4. Taster session for new starters

Before participating in a free taster session and taking part in a physical exercise programme at Taekwondo4Fitness, all participants must fill in a Free Taster Booking Form that includes a Taekwondo Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (Short: T-PAR-Q) and a Safety Note. It is a standard method of uncovering health and lifestyle issues before a Taekwondo training programme starting. The PAR-Q is short and easy to administer and reveals any family history of illness.

5. Club Registration​

After the two free taster sessions, a club membership application and consent form must be completed in full and signed with the appropriate fee and training costs. You can use these online forms for adults and children.

Taekwondo4Fitness does not charge a membership or joining fee but a small handling fee of £5 for the registration and renewal.

6. Insurance Cover

Insurance cover is provided as below:

  • UK and EU members (UK Coaching)

There is no insurance cover available for participants outside the United Kingdom and the European Union. Still, students can sign up for the services offered, including my online fitness classes, but the participation is at their own risk – you are acknowledging this when completing the PAR-Q.

The insurance provided is a member to member liability only!
Personal Accident Insurance is additional, optional insurance that members can purchase individually if needed. Taekwondo4Fitness does not offer personal Accident insurance.

7. Attending classes

Members are allocated a place at a class of their choice and subject to availability. If the class is full, new starters or members will be offered a spot on the waiting list for the class required.

Class attendance is strictly monitored, and the members are expected to turn up to all sessions on time during the specified term. Members must notify the instructor of any sessions where late arrival or absence is expected during that time (sickness, injury, etc.).
Where possible, members may be offered an alternative session to attend in the place of a missed class. In general, missed sessions are not transferable or refundable with less than 24 hours of notice. This is at the discretion of the instructor.
Only members who can commit to attending classes consistently every week will be allocated a place in class. If attendance becomes inconsistent, Taekwondo4Fitness is under no commitment to hold the member’s place in the class. Taekwondo4Fitness has the right to offer the place to a new starter or member.
If members should miss two subsequent sessions, they lose the right to their place at that class. This place will then be released to a new starter on the waiting list or another member.
In case of long injury/sickness where the member has informed Taekwondo4Fitness, we will try to offer a place back at the original class attended as soon as possible. We will provide an alternative of the moment; however, this cannot be guaranteed, nor is Taekwondo4Fitness under any obligation to provide this.
The option to pay monthly offers discounted classes when attending consistently. In the event of missed sessions, regardless of the reason, no refunds will be given. If a member pays monthly, this does not include special events, i.e. gradings, seminars, competitions, etc.

For any child under the age of 16, written consent is required from a parent or a legal guardian. This will be provided to Taekwondo4Fitness before the commencement of classes after the first trial session. This consent is to be given via the club registration and consent form.

8. Ten-Minute-Rule

There is a 10 minutes rule in place. Participants who repeatedly turn up later than ten minutes are no longer allowed to participate in the session. Members who turn up late within this time slot are requested to wait at the entrance area until the instructor asks the student to join the class.

9. Class Changes/Cancellations/Closures​

Taekwondo4Fitness reserves the right to change and cancel classes when necessary due to bad weather conditions, instructor illness, unforeseen circumstances and any other issues that may stop the class from happening.

If Taekwondo4Fitness has to cancel sessions for any reason, no refunds can be given; however, an alternative class may be offered where possible.
If the number of students is low at a particular class, Taekwondo4Fitness reserves the right to cancel this class at any time. Class cancellations will be notified via the Taekwondo4Fitness group on WhatsApp and Facebook or via text messages/emails to those students who have permitted this kind of correspondence.
Taekwondo4Fitness reserves the right to change the training schedule, add and remove classes, where needed, looking after to minimise the impact on members as far as possible.

Taekwondo4Fitness closes on Bank Holidays and over the Christmas period. Taekwondo is under no obligation to refund class fees for this closure period; no refunds will be issued.

Over the school holidays, if the facilities are unavailable, classes may be offered at a different facility depending on the costs and availability. This is subject to charges and availability.

Taekwondo4Fitness may be closed for two weeks over the summer holidays. The incurred amount will be credited to the bank account for students who pay monthly for their classes.

10. Complaints

If you are unhappy with the service offered, then please, in the first instance, raise your concern with the instructor after the class.

If the problem is unresolved to your satisfaction, then please email Taekwondo4Fitness at info@taekwondo4fitness.com within seven days of the issue being raised. A response will be sent within 14 days of receipt of the email. We take your concerns very seriously and will try to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

The coaching staff are fully qualified, insured, and DBS certified. The instructors are trained to recognise the signs of child abuse. If a child makes a disclosure or coaching staff believe that the child is suffering from abuse, we will follow the Safeguarding Policy.

12. Film/Photography

From time to time, Taekwondo4Fitness may take photographs or film during a class. The use of this data is only to promote and publicise Taekwondo4Fitness through our website, social media or literature.

Any medical condition that any participant may have or may arise must be fully disclosed at the time of registration and to the instructor before the class commerces. Failure to provide such information could prove a health risk. Taekwondo4Fitness takes no responsibility whatsoever for students/parents who fail to disclose such issues and thus put themselves or their child and other participants at risk of injury or medical complications.
