In agreeing to you or your child attend an AFTA TaeKwonDo class or club, you:
- Release and forever discharge AFTA TaeKwonDo from all claims that I may have or may have had arising from, or in connection with, me or my child and an AFTA TaeKwonDo program; and
- Indemnify, will keep indemnified and hold harmless AFTA TaeKwonDo, to the extent permitted by law in respect of any claim as a result of or in connection with an AFTA TaeKwonDo program.
I warrant that me or my child has not at any time suffered blackout, seizure, convulsion, fainting, dizzy spells or any other medical condition and is not presently receiving treatment for any illness, disorder or injury which would render it unsafe for me or my child to take part in an AFTA TaeKwonDo activity. I have read and I consent for me or my child to participate in an AFTA TaeKwonDo activity and understand the risks involved and further agree to be bound by the AFTA TaeKwonDo Code of Conduct and operating rules outlined in the Privacy agreement and contract of membership.
I acknowledge that AFTA TaeKwonDo uses its best endeavours to ensure that the equipment and sporting facilities used in the program are safe and fit for purpose and acknowledge that all sports are inherently dangerous. I have voluntarily read and accept the inherent associated risks. “AFTA TaeKwonDo” means all directors personally and in their capacity as a director, partners of directors, agents, and any representatives of AFTA TaeKwonDo. “AFTA TaeKwonDo Program” includes all programs and activities that you or your child participates in during our classes/events. This includes but is not limited to any organised sport, training, facilities and activities provided by AFTA TaeKwonDo.
Class timetables are subject to change. While AFTA TaeKwonDo uses its best efforts to operate classes as per the timetable published on our website, in some instances changes are required due to unforeseen circumstances. No guarantee is made that classes will run 100% as per the advertised timetables. Any changes to the advertised timetables will be communicated to those affected prior to the commencement of the class/event.
Training payments are expected to be paid in the first week of each month or casually on the night of attendance. We can accommodate varied payment methods including cash, direct debit, or cheque (we do not accept credit cards).
Special events, seminars and other events require upfront payment in full prior to attending.
Membership and insurance payment policy
Our members are required to pay a membership and insurance fee when initially joining AFTA TaeKwonDo. Each subsequent year of membership, a membership renewal and insurance renewal fee will also be required. If this fee is not received by the required due date, members may not be eligible to participate in events including, but not limited to seminars, special guest events, or grading events.
As our venues are indoors, wet weather is unlikely to affect sessions. Wet/cold weather: outdoor sessions will be moved to an indoor or undercover location if it rains and or is extremely cold (below 5 degrees). Where an alternative location is not available the session will be postponed or cancelled. The cost for a cancelled class due to weather will be reimbursed.
Hot weather: In the case of extreme heat any outdoor classes will be moved to an indoor or undercover location or may be postponed or cancelled. Indoor venue sessions without air-conditioning will be cancelled if the temperature reaches extreme heat (over 32 degrees). The cost for a cancelled class due to weather will be reimbursed.
Free trial classes
We offer 2 FREE TRIAL classes to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our program prior to joining. A trial is exactly that, it is used to assess you or your child’s suitability to our program. However there are circumstances where we may have to refuse you or your child joining our Academy due to the nature of being unsuitable, you will be respectfully advised the reason/s why.
Parents and or Guardians are not required to be present for the duration of each class. We encourage parents to drop off your child and return to pick them up when the class finishes. We value the importance of a child’s independence that helps to support their confidence and growth. However if you would like to stay and watch you are welcome. We highly value the benefit of parents supporting their child in their health and wellbeing development.

Food and drink policy
It is prohibited for food to be consumed during any AFTA TaeKwonDo class, however classes such as special events, seminars or parties may have a snack and or lunch included. Some of the facilities we operate in have strict policies where food cannot be consumed in the venue. Any student found to be consuming food during a class will be asked to leave the venue immediately. Our classes are structured to include drink breaks so students must bring a water filled drink bottle with them to each class.
