Getting Started

Getting Started! Everything you need to know about us, no hidden costs, no fancy deals to make you part with your hard earned money, we’re ‘the’ leading sports martial arts clubs in the capital, you need to experience us to believe it, not all martial arts clubs are the same.

Getting started at Red Star couldn’t be easier. Your first weeks training is free with no obligations. It used to be that your first class was free, but we feel you need a good week at Red Star to find out what we are really like and what we are about.

Our classes in Taekwon-Do and Kickboxing cover a multitude. No matter what your personal goals are, we can help you achieve them. We focus on Taekwon-Do as a method of self defence as well as Kickboxing as a fast and explosive sport. We have some of the best competitors in Ireland training with us, current world champions and past international title holders – this experience at one club cannot be found anywhere else in Dublin. We pride ourselves on our standard and our warm friendly training environment.

In order to start training simply drop us a line and let us know what day you would like to attend. Before you start training we need you to fill out an application form so we know a little about you and any needs you may have. Once that is done throw on a pair of track bottoms and a t-shirt and jump in for a session. Dobok’s and kickboxing apparel can be bought once you’re interested in staying with us.

At Red Star you have the opportunity of training three times a week. Our schedule is as follows:

Cost:

So how much is it to train at Red Star?

For a full time matted training gym, we offer the best prices around.

As a teen or adult you have the opportunity to train three times weekly. Children train twice a week which is recommended for the required improvement in between grades.

We operate a monthly fee which is paid at the start of the month. There are two options for payment, we prefer the standing order option (which keeps our landlord and Dublin City Council tax collectors happy) the other option is paying at reception.

If you are paying monthly at the reception the price is €60.

If you pay via standing order the price is €50. Simple as that. You can get a standing order form from us. The first month however is €50 cash paid at reception, the standing order can be completed afterwards. We strive to keep cash off the premises at all times.

Family discounts;

We also operate a family discount deal. No more than two members from the same family will pay fees. So if you have two members training consistently every other member goes FREE, unlimited. At Red Star we have families from across Dublin training including mammies and daddies. Taekwon-Do is a family friendly activity, and even more so at Red Star.

Insurance wise, you need to pay €35 annually to keep our policy happy. Once that is done you are good to go, you receive your membership booklet and license which makes you a bona fida member of Dublin’s leading sport martial arts club.
