As a member of the W.K.K.A. Association, you will have access to weekly training sessions, instructors with over 30 years of experience, special training camps in Europe and Japan and all of the fun events and activities we do throughout the year.
We have summarised all of the information you need to know about joining our Association. That said, if you have any other questions or would just prefer to chat things through, please feel free to get in touch.
Per Session: £3 to £5 (includes family discounts)
All of our instructors are volunteers. We take pride in our karate and strive to support our students in the best way we can. Many of our instructors have trained for over 30 years, spending a lot of time with the Head of the W.K.K.A. Association at Gasshuku’s (training camps) all over Europe and Japan. They have a vast amount of technique and knowledge to share, which is openly taught to all students that want to learn.
Each student will learn about all aspects of Traditional Japanese Karate, both inside and outside the dojo. We teach a mixture of kata’s (a form of movements) and kumite (sparring), along with self-defence, pad work and drills for general fitness and technique.
We make sure there is something that everyone will enjoy!
Association Membership: £25 (paid annually)
To join the W.K.K.A. Association, all you need to do is complete a membership application form, which will be provided to you after your first free training session.
The Association Fee is paid annually and covers the cost of Dojo Fees (paid directly to our Head Office in Japan), DBS (CRB) checks for instructors, administration costs such as website fees and, most importantly, our Association insurance with the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (BMABA). We even pro rata the Association Fee, depending on the time of year that you join!
Once you have become a member, you will also receive a password to access our Members Area. This is where we keep our training materials and details about all the wonderful and exciting events our Association provides (from training camps, to beach BBQ’s, trips to Europe and Japan, merchandise and much more). From here, you will be able to register and attend as many of the events as you like. Everyone is welcome!
British Martial Arts and Boxing Association
The British Martial Arts & Boxing Association (BMABA) is a multi-award winning martial arts governing body which promotes participation and social change through their charitable foundation and effectively regulates the instruction of martial arts.
The BMABA is renowned for setting some of the industry’s highest standards for instructors, monitored through its Sport & Recreation code of governance.
The BMABA charitable foundation also serves to promote martial arts participation among some of society’s most disadvantaged members.
We are very honoured to be members of the BMABA. To read more about the BMABA and what they do then simply click here.
Not For Profit
No Joining Fees, No Monthly Fees and No Subscriptions!
In W.K.K.A. we want to keep all fees to a minimum so that everyone can have the opportunity to be part of our Association.
Most of the W.K.K.A. clubs in Europe operate on a ‘not for profit’ basis. This means that all of the income we earn from training fees or association fees is used to pursue our objectives and keep the clubs running day to day.
All of our instructors are volunteers and, with the support of students (and their families), together we are able to make a club that (we like to think) is very special.
We hope you will join us!
