FAQ

A few common questions!

How much are your classes, membership and joining fees?

You will be pleased to know that Suffolk Street Defence unlike a lot of other martial arts schools, doesn’t have any expensive joining or monthly fees. We simply charge £6 per 2 hour class. Apart from this, the only other expense is a £30 annual membership & insurance fee (to offset the cost of our insurance), although this is only required once you have tried a few classes, and intend on pursuing your training.

What should I wear?

When attending a class, please wear comfortable clothes, such as a t-shirt and training bottoms. You a free to wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but please do not wear anything that is new or expensive, even with the best will in the world, through the nature of training there is a potential for clothing to become damaged. Also, for your own safety and that of your training partners, do not wear watches or any jewellery (wedding bands are acceptable, but it is advisable to tape them over) when training. Finally bring sensible and clean footwear to train in when involved in training, please do not wear out door shoes.

Do I need to bring anything with me to a class?

Bring plenty of water, an open mind and a great attitude. Training and learning requires an open an excepting attitude to give things ago. If you’re willing to learn something new, you will get the most from each class. Often RBSD is not what most people expect a “martial arts” class to be and many people will have never experienced anything remotely like it before.

What age do you start training from?

We have an age limit of 18 years old and upwards. Due to the nature of RBSD training, we do not offer (Or intend to add) any children’s classes.

What do you require from a student who attends?

Just a good attitude, a friendly outlook, and a willingness to learn and try new things.

I currently train in xyz martial art! Can I join?

Absolutely. All of our instructors have backgrounds in the more traditional martial arts. You are more than welcome to come along and either learn new skill sets and techniques or pressure test your current abilities in a more realistic RBSD scenarios and attacks.
