Licence

ALL Kickboxing students must have a license to practice, given by a White Lotus Senior Instructor, or above. A license form will be given to you on your second session, which can be handed in to any Instructor when completed. License forms contain details of membership fees which are £35 per year (£15 annual renewal). This covers your license and also member insurance which is required to continue practicing Martial Arts. You will also receive a FREE White Lotus t-shirt and syllabus book with your membership.

UNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT

New students aren’t required to invest in uniform and equipment straight away, but are advised to as soon as possible. In the meantime it is advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing such as jogging bottoms or shorts and a t-shirt. Students are encouraged to invest in White Lotus uniform for training as well as use in tournaments and events. A uniform helps to maintain the team spirit which encourages us to support one another.

As you continue in your Kickboxing training you will need basic equipment which includes Boxing Gloves, Mouth Guard, Shin and Foot Pads and a groin guard for males. Spot pads are also advised for practice at home as well as in class. A Uniform/Equipment request form can be obtained from your instructor at the end of session. You can also request a tournament checklist for a comprehensive list of what is required at tournaments and events.
