Terms of membership

Our membership criteria is simple. We have kept things as plain as possible. A single membership fee is paid by monthly instalments of 40 by standing order.
There are no lessons on Bank Holidays. And if you go on holiday, are off sick or can't make class for whatever reason, we won't give a refund.
There is no joining fee or grading fee.


The terms are quite clear:

  1. Pay membership fee by standing order on the 1st of the month

  2. Students pay fees regardless of attendance (like a gym membership)

  3. We do not offer refunds

  4. Everyone must adhere to the Code of Conduct

  5. Students must wear the required uniform

  6. People who want to learn taijiquan must meet The Tai Chi Union for Great Britain insurance policy requirement criteria


The membership terms exist to keep the school up and running. We expect all school members to abide by the terms.


Please do not ask for special treatment. We will treat all students equally and refuse to make exceptions

Health problems

Should any new problems develop, please let us know at once.

Change of circumstance

If your circumstances change, please let us know. e.g. change of address, new mobile number, different next of kin, new/worsened health problem, receiving health treatment/therapy.

As you like it...

If you don't want to pay fees, try pay-as-you-go or look for a different class...

Working with Sifu Waller

Taijiquan students who work directly with Sifu Waller pay 50 a month instalments by standing order, rather than 40.

Refunds & cancellation

Our membership policy is akin to a gym membership. We request 7 days notice if you are planning to
quit. That way the student has the time to cancel their standing order in advance.
Should the standing order be inadvertently sent after notice has been given, we will immediately refund the amount.
If you fail to give notice, don't attend classes or decide to cancel after the first of the month we will not refund the monthly fee.


People sometimes quit and then want to re-join the school at a later date. This is fine providing you left on good terms.
