Cost of Classes

Due to COVID restrictions and the reduction in the number of people who can be in the hall there has been a temporary increase in class fees.

The usual cost of classes for someone with a proper wage is €150 per 12 week term.

This yaer my school is administered in twelve week terms. For beginners terms start with their first class. For non-beginners these terms start in September. They run continuously through the year. Usually there are four full terms.

For non-beginners classes can be attended on an individual basis for €15 per class.

Concessions: 

A reduced cost is available for those on a low income of €90 per 12 week term.

There is a reduced rate for couples of €250 per couple per 12 week term.

There is a reduced rate for those under 18 of €80 per 12 week term

If these rates still unaffordable then please discuss you circumstances with me. I have never turned someone away because they could not afford to pay for classes.

Fee Refunds:

Fees are paid on a 12 week basis and are refundable only to beginners in the first term under the following circumstance: As a complete beginner you cannot know whether taijiquan is what you are looking for or if I am the teacher for you. So, if you attend at least 8 out of 10 of the beginners classes and conclude they are not of benefit to you or I am not the teacher for you I will happily refund your money for the whole term.

The classes are organised on a not-for-profit basis. The surplus income after normal expenses is used to improve the training facilities, provide equipment and to fund my own training as well as to support my teacher. I aim to provide the best value for the students of my school. 

Private Classes:

Private classes for individuals are available in Limerick and Ogonnelloe by arrangement. Typically these cost €70 per hour, €40 for 1/2 an hour. There is nothing that I teach in private classes that I do not teach in my public classes. The only advantage of a private class is that my attention is solely focus on one individual and it allows a path of tuition that is not catering to a groups needs.
