Frequently Asked Questions

What changes have been made as a result of Covid 19?

We have a limited timetable which you can see if you click here We are limiting class numbers to 12 people. Your temperature will be taken at the start of each class to assess your risk of infection. We have a professional cleaning protocol in place whereby the whole facility is thoroughly disinfected with envirosafe cleaner before each class. In class you will predominantly work on solo drills, when you work with a partner you must remain with the same partner for the whole class keeping safe distance from anyone else training.

We encourage you to prioritise your cleanliness at all times. Monitor your symptoms and avoid training should you adopt any symptoms of Covid-19 that cannot be accounted for.

How do I become a member?

Create an Account to keep track of your training. You can then navigate to the membership tab and select a membership option.

This can all be completed via our website, and if needed with email support.

If you would rather pay as you train then an account is still required. You can view the pay as you train options on the Prices page.

What membership options do you have?

Please see the Prices page.

How do I set up multiple accounts for my children / dependants?

You can simply create a new account for your child using a unique email address.

If your child doesn't have their own email address then you can create 'Child Accounts' from your account page. Simply navigate to the 'Child Accounts' section and add your dependents information. You will then be able to quickly switch between accounts.

If you need help with this process then please feel free to email

Creating a standard account for each of your children with their own email address is preferred

How do the different memberships work?

Each membership gives you a certain amount of classes per month. There are different membership bands each increasing in price and amount of classes. The more expensive membership options work out cheaper per session.

Memberships automatically renew each month, giving you your full amount of classes to use in that month until the 1st day of the next month.

Any left-over sessions that are not used are discarded and cannot be rolled over. Direct debit payments are taken via our online payment system GoCardless and are taken on the 2nd of every month.

If you run out of classes before the end of the month you can always ‘top up’ by purchasing pay as you train options.
