How to Enrol
No one is allowed to train without applying for Wu Shu Kwan membership because (in Great Britain, for example) it includes insurance cover in case of personal injuries in training.
Our injury-free record is excellent, but it is the general policy of any governing sports body to encourage all responsible martial art organisations to have their members covered by a recommended insurance policy.
Applicants should apply for their Wu Shu Kwan membership on or before their first training session.
How to Apply for Membership
You can enrol with the instructor at any of our classes, or apply to the Wu Shu Kwan office.
First of all, please obtain an official Wu Shu Kwan membership application form from any of our instructors or directly from the Wu Shu Kwan office by sending a self-addressed and stamped envelope (SAE). Then the completed form can be handed to any accredited Wu Shu Kwan instructor or posted to the Wu Shu Kwan office, together with the following 2 items:
1. A passport size photograph of applicant.*
2. Correct membership fee at £40.00 for a year
– if paid by cheque, please make it payable
to “Wu Shu Kwan”.
When ready, a membership card together with a receipt and other documents will be issued, and they can be collected by the member from the instructor. If they are to be returned by post, a self-addressed and stamped envelope (SAE) of A5 size has to be provided.
* A photograph is necessary for identification purposes because many people have the same name, for instance, John Smith, David Williams, etc.
If a photograph is not available at the time of application, it can be accepted later. But do make sure that your photograph is given to us with your name written clearly on the back to avoid confusion.
The Wu Shu Kwan membership fee is £40.00 a year, and the breakdown is as follows:
Annual Membership Fee
(Including Membership Card) .................. £31.00
Martial Art Insurance ...................................... 9.00
(Insurance cover & handling
in case of personal injuries in training)
TOTAL ....................................................... £40.00
Rest of the World
Annual Membership Fee ................................ £10.00
£8 per session (about 2 hours) – payable only when you train.
Rest of the World
Please enquire with respective instructor in that country.
Since you have made up your mind to go to a Wu Shu Kwan class to train, the easiest and most convenient way to enrol is to see the instructor there. He or she will be able to help you to complete the paperwork and handle your application for you.
Also, if you have any last-minute questions, the instructor will be happy to answer them.
Hard Copies of Essential Documents
