Thank you for your decision to join us in Taekwon-Do. We look forward to working with you for many years to come!
Here’s how to get started.

Set up your initial joining fees and ongoing payments
Download the fees information here. This contains all the relevant information about the cost of joining, and how to set up your payments.
There are some specific instructions here that really help out if you can do it.
- make the regular payments the 25th of the month
- put the correct references into the payments
Note… the monthly fee is waived in the first month, so your joining fee is paid immediately, and then your monthly fee comes out at the end of the NEXT month.
One other note: Payments are made all 12 months of the year, even though we take about a month off around Christmas time. This just makes it easier for everyone, and we actually use your “extra month” payment to cover the annual registration fee to the national organisation – so this is just easier all round.

We have two recommended places for uniforms. One is Wellington-based and is great if you want to visit the store. Both of them also have online ordering options, and deliver quickly.
What you are looking for is an ITFNZ or ITKD uniform. Fuji Mae sells all sorts of uniforms so you need to be specific when ordering from them. Mighty Fist sells only ITF uniforms.
The uniforms will have the ITKD green and blue fist on one side, the ITF logo on the other side, and the ITF tree on the back. You want a plain white uniform – no black trim.
Wellington: Fuji Mae, 52a Cleveland St, Brooklyn. https://fujimae.co.nz

Once you have registered, we send your registration information away to the National Organisation. Soon after that, they will send back your membership card, and your training book. The book you get is different depending on age group.
It is possible that the instructor has spare books ready to give you, so check in with them – you may be in luck and get your hands on one earlier.
In the pipeline is an informational booklet that will help you understand some of the things that are going on in and around the club, such as gradings, tournaments, seminars etc.
For now, be sure to ask the instructors any questions you have about these things.
