Tuition Payment

Payment for tuition can be made in-person at the dojo or online in our e-store. You may also provide a credit card to be charged automatically on a regular basis. If so, you may cancel automatic billing at any time.

Return and Refund Policy

Connecticut Budo Karate, LLC (CBK) will issue a full refund for most items returned in new condition within 30 days of the purchase. Special orders for non-stocked items are sold “as-is” and normally cannot be returned. In this case, we will attempt to accommodate a return or exchange, but return shipping and re-stocking fees may apply. IMPORTANT: All returns to CBK must include either the original receipt or a gift receipt.

Cancellation Policy

You may cancel automatic credit card billing for tuition at any time by logging into your customer account and disabling the auto-billing option. Alternatively, we can do this for you in-person, over the phone, or by email request.

IMPORTANT: You are responsible for the full tuition fee in the month in which you cancel, i.e., if you cancel your membership in August, you are responsible for August fees. Your membership for that month remains active and fully functional until the end of that month. After the end of the month, your membership will be canceled and you will not be charged again. It is not necessary to wait until the last day of the month to cancel your membership. Without a membership, training fees may be paid on a “drop-in” basis prior to the start of class.

IMPORTANT: There are no refunds given for tuition paid in advance. However, in cases of extended illness or injury (one month or more), membership may be suspended (with approval) for a period of time, extending the tuition period by the same time period. A doctor’s note might be required for approval.
