Terms and Conditions


Terms & Conditions – Updated 6 Monthly

Kesshin Kai (KK) does not inform each student/parent individually regarding any changes to the Bi-annual Terms and Conditions. It is required for each student/parent to monitor this document below accordingly.

Kesshin Kai (KK) or any instructor associated with the KK, will not accept liability for any personal injuries or accidents resulting from the improper practice or use of any of the techniques listed in this site, on any self-defence/short courses, workshops or whilst visiting their Dojo or the National Windermere Headquarters Dojo.

All martial arts techniques, if performed incorrectly, can cause serious injury and should not be attempted without supervision from a qualified martial arts instructor.

All Kesshin Kai students must purchase a licence which includes adequate and proper insurance for martial arts practice prior to commencing training.

This is in accordance with the rules laid down by the Kesshin Kai U.K.

Registration and Insurance Renewals

All insurances are automatically renewed every 12 months. If you are not insured you can’t officially train in the club. All students must give two weeks notice to cancel their insurance renewal.

Matt Etiquette

Etiquette is important within the club. The student must conform to the 10 rules of the dojo. This is given to every new student when registering. The student must respect and honour the Sensei and club at all times, on and off the matt.


Only the official Gi  (suit) should be worn and all correct number of badges should be sown prior to the grading ie; When taking Yellow belt 1 badge, orange 2 badges etc. No tattoos, wrist bands of any kind should be visible whilst training on the matt. All earings, bracelets, rings,(of any kind)and watches should be removed before entering the dojo. Piercings that can not be removed must be covered with a plaster or appropriate band aid. (visible or not)

Direct Debit

To ensure our policies and insurance is up to date, we require that all students have registered through the online booking system, TeamUp (On registration to the club). The system also requires we have contact information and emergency information of parents/carers, students and medical history.  All payments will be taken through the direct debit system GoCardless online.

If we do not have a record of the students attendance, this will invalidate our insurance and we have the right to refuse entry to the Martial Arts training within Kesshin Kai.

Please note, failure to adhere to the guidelines above will invalidate your membership and insurance of Kesshin Kai.

The Direct Debit is set up through gocardless.com. If the training fees increase, Kesshin Kai will give a minimum of 10 days notice. Should a student decide to leave the club, it is the full responsibility of the student/parent to cancel the direct debit, not that of Kesshin Kai. Unfortunately no reimbursements will be made.

Holiday Time Yeah!!!

KK takes 6 weeks off every year. 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 weeks at Easter and 2 weeks over summer. This gives all students and family members time to recharge, ready for starting back at their club.

The 6 weeks above are already factored into the monthly fee.

Students are are free to make up or catch up on any missed classes or their personal holidays at a later date if taken in the same month.

Self Defence 4 Schools

All students within Selfdefence4schools-subsidised programme are required to partake in additional fundraising every 6 months. Alternatively students are free to contribute to the programme if they can’t attend the fundraising events.

Attendance Classes

Each student must have valid insurance

Monthly Classes

Any missed classes can be made up within the same paid month, but cannot be carried through to the following month.

KK cannot accept responsibility for any lessons cancelled due to an Act of God which refers to, but is not solely inclusive of; snow, floods, fire and epidemics

Competitions, Workshops & Courses

Once a deposit has been made for the Competition, workshop or course, under no circumstances will it be refunded. This is also the case of the full payment, unless a doctor’s note can be provided or some physical accident which prevents the student from attending ie: broken arm. In this case a credit note of voucher may be awarded.

Social Media

Kesshin Kai  frequently takes videos and  photos of students at classes, courses, competitions, major events and our Online training courses richsmithmartialarts.thinkific.com. All Copyrights remains with @KesshinKai.
