Tae Kwon Do students must have Full Uniforms during the Ankeny Community School Year. During School Summer Break T-Shirts are permitted with belts and uniform bottoms.
Hapkido Students Uniforms consist of a AMA School T-Shirt and Black Pants provided at sign up. Hapkido Brown Belts and above will be asked to purchase a Hapkido Uniform Top at the Brown Belt Level as many of the techniques learned at this stage will be upper upper ore arm (below the elbow) and upper sleeve grabs (above the elbow) as these techniques cannot be done without a uniform and your uniform helps identify you in the program you are training under.
Effective February 1st 2018 TKD uniforms tops are not allowed during Hapkido training. Please bring Hapkido Tops with you to class.
We are guests in the Satellite facilities where classes are held and we expect our instructors, students, and parents to respect the facility. All children in the waiting must be supervised at all times. At no time is it permissible for any person to roam the halls or other areas of the facility. FOOD AND DRINK ARE NOT PERMITTED. Again, we are guests and any inappropriate behavior or disrespect in these facilities could ultimately result in our program being terminated in your community.
Parents are required to bring students into the facility and sign in with the instructor/secretary at the beginning of class. At the end of class, parents must always come back in to the building to pick up their athlete. Athletes will not be allowed to leave the building unattended.
Academy of Martial Arts class fees may be paid monthly via ACH transfer, credit/debit cards or paid in full using the afore mentioned accepted payments
No checks will be accepted for any monthly Tuition or events.
We are not like some schools that charge you for the rest of your contract (or buy out your remaining months) we just ask for written notice as described below.
Purchaser agrees to provide sixty (60) days advance written notice to Academy of Martial Arts for either the 12 month or 6 month plan. Purchaser acknowledges that the Academy of Martial Arts must receive such prior written notice before the next Monthly Installment is due in order to permit Payment Agency to act upon such termination. Termination fee applies depending on plan chosen, 12 Month Plan not to equal more than 2 months Tuition, 6 Month Plan not to equal more than 1 months Tuition.
