Kingstanding Leisure Centre (Dulwich Road, B44 0EW) at 6:30pm


If you would like to join our club, come along to the Kingstanding Leisure Centre on Thursday to watch or try it out. The first lesson is free, so you have nothing to lose. Class starts at 6:30pm so please be there for 6:20pm.

The minimum age for joining is 6 years old and the child must be able to know left from right. Parents/Guardians are asked not to watch unless the child will not train otherwise, as it can distract the child and the rest of the class. If you have any medical conditions, please tell us as we need to be aware of them. If Asthmatic please bring inhaler.

After the first class it is £3.50 per week and we have special deals for families training together. A family of 3 for one class is £9.50.

The club runs all year round, except for two weeks Christmas. We also organise occasional social events throughout the year, which all students and parents are invited to.

After a certain grade, some students are invited to attend for two classes. The second hour is a more in depth session that focuses on the higher grade syllabus. The cost for two sessions is now £5, or for a family of 3 it is £12 – saving £2.25.
