Membership at Exeter Martial Arts


As one of the largest martial arts and combat sports clubs in the South West, we know many of our members like to do multiple classes each week, whilst others prefer to do just one or two classes in a particular art/sport.


As a result, we offer a fully flexible monthly payment scheme, which allows you to choose the right training programme for you. We have four different packages, varying from just a single class per week to unlimited training. There are discounts for students, unwaged, NHS staff, emergency services staff, the military and under 16s.


Payment is by monthly direct debit and, as there is no contract, you can discontinue your training at any time (we just ask for one month’s notice). We don’t ask you to commit to a particular class each week, so if you miss a class you can make it up over the following month with an alternative class. Your membership with Exeter Martial Arts entitles you to train in both of our Exeter Venues. If you are away for four weeks or more, we can suspend your payments until you return.


We have found that people doing two or more classes each week see the benefit of their membership with us much more quickly.  They learn faster, progress more quickly and have a more rounded experience.  We advise doing at least 2 classes each week in your chosen martial art.


On becoming a member of EMA you will be given a membership card. It’s important that you use this card to swipe in when you arrive for each class. This helps us track your attendance and ascertain when you are ready to grade. You will also receive a membership book / grading log which you will keep as a record of all your gradings and achievements.
