Starting Martial Arts


Students are required to be members of JCCC. Membership and class/workshop fees are payable in advance.

A $20.00 administration fee will be charged on returned cheques. Students whose class fees are not up to date (i.e. martial arts students who have not paid in full for the current month by the 15th of that month) will not be permitted to participate in classes until their fees are current. Waiver forms must be completed for each martial arts student in person upon registration.

Minimum Age required:
Aikido, Naginata - 6 years old
Judo, Karate, Shorinji Kempo - 7 years old
Kendo - 8 years old
Jodo, Iaido - 15 years old
Kyudo - 16 years old

Fees are due on or before the 1st class of the month. Fees are assessed per calendar month regardless of when students start. Fees are due whether a student attends only one class or all classes during the month. Fee discounts are available for advance payments.

Class Fee Deferment
A written notice is required in advance if you know that you will be absent for an extended period (due to injury, travel, work, etc), in order for fees to be deferred for this period. A student must be absent for at least one full calendar month (i.e. the 1st to end of month) for the fee.

A written notice is required should you decide to quit the class. Without formal notification of quitting, a student’s status will continue to be considered active and program fees will continue to accumulate.

Since 1963, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre has grown and flourished with the generosity and continual patronage of our many members and supporters.
Effective April 1, 2017, any payments made to the JCCC (including membership, class and workshop fees) will be non-refundable.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
