The following is a breakdown of the costs of training with Spirit Taekwon-Do. Note that in many cases family discounts will apply if there is more than one person from a family joining, training or grading at the same time.
Joining Fee $95
Gives you membership to Spirit Taekwon-Do and the ITFNZ. It also includes your first month training fees and your club badge.
Monthly Fees $45 *
Fees are payable on the 25th of each month (for the next month), by automatic payment. Fees are payable 12 months of the year.
2 family members: $80 + Each additional family member: $20
Grading Fees $50 per grading
Three times a year the ITFNZ holds gradings. These give you the opportunity to move up through the ranks as you gain proficiency in Taekwon-Do.
Dobok/Uniform – $60-$90
This is not necessary straight away, but you will need one before you grade to your next belt. A great local source is the Fuji-Mae store:
52A Cleveland St
Ph 04 939 8071
There are often tournaments, seminars, camps and other activities throughout the year. These are optional, and usually incur extra costs.
Taekwon-Do teaches you so much more than self-defence and kicking and punching. What you learn from years of training in Taekwon-Do is self-respect and respect for others, humility, and belief in your ability to achieve anything you want, both within Taekwon-Do and in everyday life.
