Teenagers are welcome to come and train with us at this club. Due to legislation, and how long it takes to sort out paperwork, we must request that under-18s are accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian, or another adult nominated by the parent or guardian.
At this time, we probably cannot accept under-13s as members, and we do not currently have plans for a children’s session. However, if there is sufficient interest (and upfront commitment!), this may be something that we can look into a little further down the line.
We will endeavour to keep the club environment and atmosphere appropriate for under-18s, but as this is a martial art where people are receiving hits from swords, we cannot guarantee that the language will be perfectly pure. Along this same vein, there will be physical contact (including small amounts of grappling and wrestling), and there probably will be bruises from impacts now and again. There is very little that can be done to reduce the chance of this – it’s just the nature of the activity.
