Membership/Insurance for Bloomsbury Aikido Club Practitioners
With the exception of first time beginners and insured visitors, you need current club membership/insurance to train with Bloomsbury Aikido Club. Always bring evidence of your insurance to class. You should keep your membership/insurance slip in your association membership book.
First-time beginners are given a “first three classes” try-out period, covered by the association insurance arrangements:
First class – BAC (Upper Room) no training fee. Prior to class, please complete the Goshinkai Membership Application/Visitor Form and the Bloomsbury Aikido Club PARQ. These forms are needed for Health and Safety reasons.
Second class – BAC (Upper Room) training fee, non-member rate, applies.
Third class – BAC (Upper Room) training fee, non-member rate, applies. After this class, if you decide that you would like to train with us, the annual membership fee is payable before your fourth class.
For the time being, Bloomsbury Aikido Club is not holding regular classes in London. BAC’s present function is explained in BAC Newsletter 2017-1.
