Payments and Attendance:

 

  • Membership at Nexus is secured by the payment of a monthly direct debit. There are no contracts so your membership arrangements can be amended at any time at your request, for reasons such as membership level change, bank detail changes or date of payment changes.

  • Members may attend various timetabled sessions without booking in advance, as long as there is space in that group. If at any time sessions or class types become full, we will then ask members to commit to set sessions until spaces become available. Regular attendance is necessary in order to be considered for grading selection. 

  • Participation in the 'Invite Only' Martial Arts sessions is at the discretion of the Class Instructor and is dependent on the Student reaching the required standard.

  • Nexus are committed to offering a quality service at reasonable and competitive prices. However, should it become necessary to amend membership structures and/or prices, we will inform you in writing, giving you reasonable notice. We will not change any payments without your prior permission.

  

Suspension / Cancellation of Training

 

  • Membership suspension at Nexus is only permitted for up to 3 months for medical reasons and requests for membership payment suspensions must be accompanied with a medical note or other evidence. Any members who cancel their direct debit without first notifying us, will be required to pay a £25 administration and rejoining fee in order to continue with their training. By cancelling payments, members are effectively cancelling their membership. 

  • We are a busy club and places are in high demand. By continuing payment throughout any short term absences you are securing a place at the club. Members are more than welcome to make up any missed sessions by attending additional sessions when available to take full advantage of their subscription. 

  • Nexus reserve the right to cancel memberships at any time. Members who pay but do not attend for 3 months and have not been in contact with the club will automatically have their membership suspended and payments cancelled. No refunds will be authorised as payments made have been securing a place at the club. Again, there will be a £25 administration and rejoining fee should they wish to restart training, assuming there is a place available in their chosen class.

  • Please note for insurance purposes we need to be fully aware of the number of students we have training, so it is very important that you advise the club if you decide to suspend or cancel your training. If you wish to cancel your membership, you should do so in writing, providing 30 days notice, using the form that can be supplied by your club Instructor. Note that no refunds can be made for any missed classes prior to the date of cancellation. 

  • If you have any concerns about, or would like to make any amendments to a membership, training or payments, then please do speak to a member of our team before making any alterations with your own bank, as this can cause issues with future payments and may result in the accidental cancellation of membership.
