Payment of the capoeiraclasses:

We work with a monthly subscription.
A new student can buy a ‘10-times-pass’ the first month or he can also pay every class seperately as he likes; the next month the student pays the monthly subscription like everyone.

A student can pay two different ways:
- A subscription to train as many times (a week) as he likes;
- A subscription to train one time a week (no matter where).

A student has to pay during the first week of a new month.
The money cannot be returned if the student doesn’t come to class. If he has a valid proof (note) of a doctor that he was sick or injured, the money can be used for the next month of training.

In case of holidays: the teacher will not be present if the gym is closed, even then the students pays the same as always (because he can also train at another place). When the student advises the teacher that he won’t come to class during the holidays (a full month) he doesn’t have to pay of course, but if he does come (i fit was just for 1 time during that month) he pays the monthly subscription.

During summerholidays (July/August) there will be payed by class and NOT monthly subscription.
In case of emergency the teacher can cancel a class but the student can always train in another place where the teacher is teaching. If this happens two times (cancelling a class) the student can ask his money back.

Also remember that some months count 5 weeks, this extra class a student also doesn’t have to pay. So the teacher is entitled to cancel 1 class that month in case of emergency.
Workshops, festivals, extra classes with visiters from abroad are payed extra ans seperatly from the monthly subscription.

Any doubts and/or questions, please speak to the teacher.
