Judo Matsu Membership Terms and Conditions

Our membership terms and conditions have been established to ensure our members are aware of their rights and responsibilities as a member of our facility. On acceptance by Judo Matsu of this agreement, you will be referred to as the “member” and have the usage rights and obligations as detailed below.

1 MEMBERSHIP ACCESS
Membership commences on the date stated via your welcome email from Judo Matsu, and you will be charged at a rate stated in this email, by direct debit and via the third party vendor, Ezypay. Membership allows access to Judo Matsu’s judo classes during operating hours.  Membership is personal to the “member” and the membership cannot be assigned or transferred to another person unless authorised by Judo Matsu.

2 MEMBERSHIP TERMS
The member will choose one of the memberships offered by Judo Matsu. Currently, there are three options: 1. Kids/Youth (1,2 or 3 days a week) paid in full for the entire 10 week school term;  2. Adults (two or three days/week) fortnightly direct debit; 3. Adults, casual visit (and casual visit packs). Different rates apply for each membership option. The “member” agrees to pay Judo Matsu the fees applicable to the membership selected. The minimum charge will be the period of the contract chosen and this will be indicated on the Judo Matsu payment email completed by the “member” in respect of their membership. Payment cycles are fortnightly (direct debit members). Pre-payment for the term is also available. Fees and prices are disclosed on the prices tab of the Judo Matsu website. Your membership contract will automatically be set to 12 months and automatically renew to the same type of contract at the end of the period, unless the “member” notified otherwise. Upon membership the “member” must register with Judo NSW, which will incur a annual fee of $90 for Kids/Youth (under 16) and $130 for adults. This fee must be paid before the end of the cooling off period

3 COOLING OFF
There is a cooling off period of thirty (30) days. Unless you advise us of your intention to terminate the contract prior to 5pm of the thirtieth day of the term, your contract and all rights and obligations therein will continue.

4 DIRECT DEBIT PAYMENT
Judo Matsu uses an external company to manage the direct debit payment system. Payments to Judo Matsu via direct debit must comply with the Ezypay terms and conditions. Please ask if you would like to view the direct debit documentation before signing.

5 MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION
Judo Matsu reserves the right to cancel this membership agreement at its discretion. The “member” may cancel their membership at anytime by giving Judo Matsu management a minimum of 14 days notice in writing prior to the affected member’s payment date. A “member” who has paid in advance may only terminate due to medical reasons such as serious illness, physical disability or other extenuating circumstances as deemed sufficient by Judo Matsu management. Documentation may be required to support these claims.

6 MEMBERSHIP SUSPENSION
A member may suspend their membership a maximum of 8 weeks (56 days) per calendar year of their membership. A minimum of seven (7) days’ written notice prior to the affected payment must be given and all suspensions must be a minimum of 14 days. Please note, membership cancellation or suspension will not be authorised if membership payments are outstanding.

7 MEMBERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES
The “member” will ensure they complete a Judo Matsu waiver form and hand to the coach on duty (or online) before commencing their first session (post trial). The “member” agrees to provide an accurate health and fitness profile prior (part of membership form) to joining the program with Judo Matsu. The “member” is aware that photography may occur during sessions and gives permission for this to be used for marketing purposes that may include but not be limited to: flyers, newsletters, and the company website.

Judo Matsu reserves the right to vary, add or eliminate from time to time the open hours or scheduled hours of any of our facilities, classes or services. Please check all timetables and member information for changes.

The “member” agrees and accepts that a particular facility or service may not be available for participation due to a prior booking, mechanical breakdown, fire, loss of lease, or any other reason. The “member” agrees not to hold the centre responsible for such occurrences.
