Classes at the Ipswich Buddhist Centre

Classes are open to anyone aged 16 years and over. No prior knowledge of martial arts - or any specific level of fitness - is required.

Dress is informal, but clean indoor only shoes are required for training within the Buddhist Centre. Clothes that allow free movement- such as 
t-shirts, tracksuit trousers and trainers etc. - are recommended.

This class tends to be at capacity. Before attending, please email, and we will advise if there are places available.


Every Monday (except Bank Holidays) from 7.00-9.00pm.
-7.00-8:00pm: Grades 1 and 2
-8:00-9:00pm: Grades 3 and above.

Students are able to attend the full two-hour session (at no extra cost), but those who have not yet passed their second grade are encouraged to train for the second hour with minimal instruction; this is to expedite student progression.

For more information, please visit the Ipswich Buddhist Centre website.

All new students are entitled to two free introductory sessions of Wing Chun Kung Fu at the Ipswich Buddhist Centre, courtesy of Evergreen Hall Self-Defence Limited.  Students will then be able to pay for subsequent lessons by one of the two following options:

  • Monthly Plan*. £25 by standing order each calendar month (Evergreen Hall Self Defence Limited sort code 20-19-97; account number 53994058).  This is equivalent to £7.14 per lesson based on 42 lessons per year.

  • PAYG (Three Lessons). £30 for three lessons, (equivalent to £10 per session) either in cash or by bank transfer (Evergreen Hall Self Defence Limited sort code 20-19-97; account number 53994058).

Other than the costs of the lessons and gradings, there are no additional fees. Branded t-shirts and jumpers are available for purchase, but these are not required to be worn for the lesson.

*Terms and Conditions for Monthly Plan.
1. Payment is to be made each month, regardless of the number of lessons being held in that particular month.
2. Payment is to be received by the first day of the month, and is non-refundable. If payment is not received on the first day of the month, the PAYG option remains available.
3. No notice is required to end the Monthly Plan, as no contract is to be signed.
