Martial Arts

Starting Martial Arts

The JCCC houses a state-of-the-art Martial Arts Wing with two separate dojos facilitating eight different authentic Japanese Martial Arts. Our programs are all affiliated with Japan, and are recognized by Martial Arts federations on both national and international levels. Over the five decades of its operation, we have produced winners and international competitors. Our instructors do much more than teach skills and techniques - they educate students in the tradition and discipline associated with these sports. Classes are geared to different skill levels and age groups. Class observation is recommended before registering for those who are not familiar with Martial Arts. As Martial Arts is a disciplined sport, participants and observers must understand that there is an expectation of practices that reinforce martial arts teachings.

Fees:
Fees are calculated monthly for participants regardless of how many classes the participant attends. Fees are assessed per calendar month regardless of when students start. Fees are due on or before the 1st class of the month. All fees are nonrefundable but can be applied to other JCCC Martial Arts Programs.

Planned Absences:
Whether for travel, work, injury or any other personal reasons, if participants wish to suspend their participation for any whole month(s), and not accumulate fee charges, they can only do so if they submit a suspension/termination form prior to taking time off. Please note that verbal notification without written notice will not be acknowledged.

The participant must be absent for at least one full calendar month (i.e. the 1st to end of month) to be exempt from fee obligations.

Those who have already paid in advance can have their paid fees deferred. Without written notice, the JCCC will hold participants responsible for ongoing fee charges.

Withdrawal from Program:
If participants wish to withdraw from the program, they must fill out a termination form and submit it to JCCC reception prior to withdrawal. Without formal written notice, the JCCC will consider participants active and will hold participants responsible for ongoing fee charges.
