Which Course To Start With?

Generally, beginners will find it better to opt for either the Yang 10-Step, 16-Step, or 24-Step forms.

Trial Session & Cost:
You can treat the 1st class of any course that you come to as a 'Trial Session' which can be paid for as a 'one-off' (£5).
If you then decide to continue the course having paid the £5 trial session fee, £5 will be deducted from the course fee.

The Cost to Continue the Course:
Your 'trial session' does not have to be the 1st class of the course.  If you join up after the course has started, you will not be charged for the classes that you have missed, and the classes that you attend will be worked out pro-rata minus the £5 trial fee.  (E.g. if you were to try out a class on week 4 out of a total of 12, you would end up paying for lessons 4-12, and the £5 that you initially paid would also be deducted from that amount).

Taking More Than 1 Class Per Week:
If you wish to do more than one class per week, you only pay 50% of the course fee for any further classes within the same week.
