Our Training Year
The UKKFF runs a comprehensive training year lasting for 47-48 weeks. All general classes, seminars, workshops, tutorials inter-term breaks, bank holidays & special training holidays are published annually in advance, all members are kept informed, and everyone can plan for a good work/life balance.
Our entire training year is divided into four terms.
- Winter Term (January – March)
- Spring Term (April – June)
- Summer Term (July – September)
- Autumn Term (October – December)
Each term runs for twelve weeks, except when public holidays & leap-years interfere. When this happens we are forced to run an eleven-week term instead.
Start Dates & New Enrolments
The best time to begin your training is at the start of each term. Lots of new students enter our General Classes and begin their studies, so you’ll be with a group of like-minded beginners straight away. The first four weeks of instruction with us are completely FREE, so that you can evaluate our approach and see if the UKKFF is for you.
It is also possible to start training mid-term. You’ll still get your four-week free trial, however there may not be a full term remaining afterwards, meaning you won’t have as much time to master your material as those who began at the start of term.
If you wish to continue training after your trial period is over, you may then join the UKKFF and become a full member of the organisation. If you decide otherwise, you may leave with no further obligations, and our thanks for giving us a try.
End-Of-Term Seminars & Assessments
At the end of each term we run a large-group seminar for all UKKFF members at one of our more spacious hired venues. This event offers hours of additional training in our martial arts, plus the opportunity to take an assessment in Kung-Fu and/or Escrima.
Inter-Term Breaks & Bank Holidays
We take a one-week break between each term, plus an extended two-week break over Christmas. During inter-term breaks there are no scheduled classes, workshops or seminars, and any private tuition takes place at the discretion of each instructor.
Classes are also closed during UK Bank Holidays and Public Holidays, usually because our hired venues close for the day.
Dates for ALL the above events are included on our annual events calendar, which can be viewed online or downloaded as a PDF from this website at any time.
