The additional grades for children 12 years and under are $25 per student. These are not eligible for family discounts. (White belt +1, white belt +2, white belt +3, etc.) The grades for children that are the same as adult and teen grades cost the same as the adult and teen grades (above).

Free sparring safety equipment
Once a student reaches green belt, he or she should invest in a set of free sparring safety equipment. It takes adults around 1.5 years to reach green belt, and children around 3 years. Free sparring safety equipment costs approximately $140-$250 per set, and is available directly from one of the following suppliers:
- Top Ten, http://toptennz.com/
- Top Pro, http://toppro.co.nz/
- FujiMAE, http://fujimae.co.nz/
- MightyFist, http://mightyfist.co.nz/
Alternatively, we can order sparring equipment for you. We get MightyFist black vinyl gloves and boots for $140 per set.
Ask the instructor for more details before purchasing free sparring safety equipment, to ensure you purchase an approved style. If this equipment is maintained well, it should last many years of normal use.
For those who are unable to attend regularly, we have a casual class rate of $15 per class per person.
Our classes are fantastic value, so why not come along and meet us this week? Give International Taekwon-Do a try!
