SWKKF Annual Fee
Glamorgan Karate Club is part of a larger organization, the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation (SWKKF), and as such there is a $70 annual fee to this organization. SWKKF fees are collected at the beginning of the fall semester (for the Adult Club only). If you are a member of the Family / Intermediate class, the SWKKF fee is rolled into your club fees already.
SWKKF fees are paid primarily through eTransfer and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require an alternate means of payment, please speak to an instructor.

Gi - (uniforms)
A gi is the traditional karate training uniform. There is no obligation to purchase a uniform at any point and we recommend that you do not purchase a gi in your first semester. The first semester is usually a trial period for most students, and they do not want to commit to anything until a full semester is complete.
