Well how long is a piece of string!? (Only joking)
To come and participate in class we charge an individual fee to contribute to the clubs running costs and contribute towards the cost of our insurance. This is currently set at £6.50 per weekday session, per person, and £10 per person per weekend open session which last from 10am until 4pm. We also offer a capped £25/month option for those wanting to attend the weekday sessions which works out cheaper than £6.50 per individual session. Honour & Arms uses any profts and overages as reinvestment into the club in the form of equipment, manuals et al to the betterment of continuing the clubs progress.
As with any martial art there are other costs but these are totally down to what you would wish to spend. Safety equipment, training weapons, manuscripts, books et al are all available for you to purchase at your leisure to suit your needs but never fear, we have club equipment that can be used whilst you decide on what you want and need.
