Equipment

All equipment will be provided by the club, but we do encourage people to buy their own glove and bracer part way through training.

When training takes place

Training sessions take place on Tuesday / Wednesday nights and last for approximately two hours. Arrival is from 7.15 for a 7.30 pm start.  Both adults and children train together at the same time.

The full course will consist of a minimum 6 x 2 hour training sessions plus a weekend (probably a Saturday, with a sign off session that takes approximately four hours) followed by three further weeks support.

We also implement occasional “have a go nights” in the support period, 1 x 2 hour session, adults £10, children £5.   NB – trainees and have a go can only use the equipment we provide. They cannot bring their own.
