LTK Monthly Membership Fee
As a reminder the Monthly Membership fee to Lee Taylor Karate secures the students place and must be paid even if the student misses some lessons (unless prior arrangement has been made) this creates commitment to their club and their training. All paid by Standing Order, Bank Card (£1 surcharge required) Bank Transfer or Cash at the start of the month.
The monthly membership fee equates to the student receiving 4 lessons a month (or 48 weeks for the year) I do not charge for the 5th week in certain months which means up to 1 months training FREE can be accumulated over the year (or 4 weeks used for holidays etc)
Until next month!
Train Hard - Train Safe - Have FUN.
