Members have the opportunity to train up to four times per week when they subscribe using one of the monthly fee schemes detailed below. Training in any martial art requires commitment, and the fee structure is designed to reward members’ commitment to the club.  Unfortunately we cannot reimburse fees for missed lessons, nor offer one-off lesson fees.

Beginners Course Fees

Our beginners courses last for 4 sessions, usually scheduled on the last two weeks of the month during Tuesday and Thursday sessions.  If you are a student attending one of our beginners courses the first lesson is free.  On the second lesson you get charged £15 if you are full time students (proof of status will be required) and £20 for non students: these fees cover the following three lessons.  At the end of the beginners course you will be offered the opportunity of joining our club and paying one of our regular fees as outlined below.

Discounted Contracts

The most cost-effective way to train with Carisma is to subscribe via a Direct Debit contract, for three months or more. Contract subscriptions benefit from a significant discount, and longer contracts get still better rates. Best of all, the contracts are fixed-rate for their duration, so even if fees increase, you’ll pay what you signed up for and not a penny more.  All prices are per calendar month:

Length of contract
3 months 6 months 8 months 12 months
25.00 20.00
Full-time student 36.00 32.00 30.00
Standard contract
46.00 44.00 40.00
  • Undergraduate rates are available to all University students, entitling them to train with Carisma only during term time (e.g. about 24 weeks during the academic year, being away during Christmas and other breaks between terms). This contract is meant to start in September-October when the academic year starts and finishing in May-June the following year.
  • Full-time student rates are available to any other student (including high school, language and University post grads) and entitles them to train both in and out of term time.
  • Standard contract applies to all people that do not fit in one of the above categories; please notice that people with University Post Doc posts will be charged at this rate.

Monthly Subscriptions

Per-monthly subscriptions are available to all members, with fees payable by cash or cheque. Fees must be paid by the first lesson of each month – there is a £10 penalty for late payment.

Standard 50.00
Concessions 44.00
  • Cheques should be made payable to “CARISMA”.
