I understand that Goshin Karate UK requires members to pay a one off joining fee, and training fees are to be paid either per class or by a monthly rolling contract. Members may cancel this monthly contract at any time, however a 30 days notice must be given in writing to a member of staff. Once cancelled, you may have to pay an admin fee if you wish to return.

I understand that my training insurance needs to be renewed annually from the time of signing up.

I understand that any stock, belt, or promotion fee is payable at the time of order.
