We can not accept students for training who are under the age of 16 yrs unless accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also training.
All new students will be required to train with a wooden sword (bokken) until such time as the senior instructor determines otherwise.
No "replica" blades are allowed in the dojo, all swords will be rigorously inspected before training commences.
All beginners, after initial trial (4 week period), will be required to purchase a license and insurance.
This is paid for annually and is needed for any grading of dojo training activities undertaken 'by law'.
Your instructor will inform you when you are ready for a grading.
