In 2022, due to our usual venue Thorrington School hall being closed for rebuilding, all sessions will be held at St Saviour's Anglican Church Hall, 200 Colombo St, Sydenham (opposite Countdown). 

Training Fees are $85 per student per term, or $120 per family per term (includes participation in as many sessions (up to 6 a week)as you wish to attend) plus an annual fee to our national organisation TNZ of $10 per person. 

Grading occurs once or twice a year and grading fees are $35 per junior belt and $50 per senior belt, payable before each grading. This covers examiners fee, union fee, certificate and new belt or tip.

TRAINING DURING SCHOOL TERMS (all 'first session of the day' times include 15 mins hall set-up)
4.45 pm to 6:00 pm  - Beginners and junior belts
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm  - Senior belts (green belts and up)

4.45 pm to 6:00 pm  - Beginners and junior belts
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm  - Senior belts (green belts and up)

5.45 pm to 7:30pm  - Beginners to Black belts.  Includes sparring (kyorugi) for those who wish to participate.


2.00- 4.15 pm - January to November.  A focus on tournament preparation, but all members who can manage the length and intensity of the session are welcome.

There is some flexibility about which sessions members can attend (many senior belts attend the first sessions and keen junior belts can attend the later sessions; some attend both). Generally, senior belts will benefit more from attending the later sessions.

Junior belt (5pm) sessions are only held during primary school terms.  During school holidays we usually hold combined sessions on Mondays (5.15-7pm  including set-up) and Wednesdays (5.45-7.30pm) and all members are welcome to attend at no extra cost. Fridays and Saturdays continue during the short holidays.  We take a few weeks break over Christmas and restart mid-January.
