After 4 weeks of training, it is highly recommended that you become a member of the BKK as soon as possible, not only for insurance cover but also to be able to enter BKK tournaments and other events.

The cost of this membership is set by the BKK and is renewed on a yearly basis in January. The current costs are £34 for seniors and £20 for juniors.
