Our philosophy on lesson and grading fees is simple, you only pay for those that you attend.
Whilst SSSK is run on a "not for profit" basis inevitably there are some costs such as premises hire and insurance that need to be covered. Association fees cover your SHOTO/EKF registration which ensures that you are covered by your instructor’s insurance policy.
We use a simplified traditional Kyu grade coloured belt structure with no intermediate belts. Whilst this means fewer gradings than at some other clubs there is no compromise on the time it takes to attain black belt standard with a minimum six months between brown belt gradings.
