CK Martial Hearts’ Terms and Conditions
Applications for a place on one of our 2017 Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Training Programs can be made at anytime. However, in doing so participants accept:
● After applications have been accepted, we will send you an invoice for a deposit of 30% of the total booking fee. The deposit must be paid within 3 days of receiving the invoice
● Reservations will not be considered confirmed bookings until the 30% deposit is paid.
● After a 30% deposit has been received, all outstanding fees must be paid 1 month prior to the beginning of the program.
● Participants under 17 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian who is also training.
● Participants understand that during this program class times and activities are scheduled. It is each participant’s responsibility to attend on time. While we will do everything possible to ensure the comfort of all participants, class times and content cannot be changed at participant request. You are free to abstain from classes at any time, but no refunds will be given if you choose not to attend activities.
● Participants who join our Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Training Programs program understand and accept that they do so at their own risk.
● Participants who join our Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Training Programs program understand and accept that neither CK Martial Hearts, Cultural Keys, nor the Shaolin Temple will be held responsible for any accident, injury, loss or illness students incur during the program.
● Program fee does not include travel to Beijing, accommodation in Beijing, or personal expenses incurred during the program.
● Participants understand the need for flexibility on a program of this nature. While we guarantee you will be able to participate in every activity we offer, should you wish to, when operating in rural China some flexibility and patience is required as things may change at the last moment.
● CK Martial Hearts, Cultural Keys and the Shaolin Temple reserve the right to refuse Participants access to and if necessary remove them from the program if they are intoxicated,
aggressive or offensive.
● Participants agree to at all times respect and obey the relevant customs and laws of the People’s Republic of China, and understand that failure to do so may result in their removal from the program, detention by local authorities, or deportation from China.
● Participants who join our Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Training Programs are advised to have their own health and/or travel insurance, and understand that neither Cultural Keys, CK Martial Hearts nor the Shaolin Temple will be liable for costs incurred by any accident or sickness participants may endure during the program.
● All participants understand that places on these programs are not 100% confirmed until CK Martial Hearts has received both Booking Form and the Release of Liability Form for each participant, prior to the start of the program.
● Your safety is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, please do not leave Wangzhigou without informing a member of our team. Unexplained absences will result in us reporting you missing to the authorities after 12 hours.
● If you do leave Wangzhigou unaccompanied and without informing a CK Martial Hearts team member, you may forfeit your place on our program and all monies paid.
● Participants are hereby informed that photos and/or videos may be taken of them during their participation in activities during this program, copies of which will be sent once the course is completed. None will be used for advertising purposes without participants’ explicit permission.

– cancellations between 1 month and 7 days in advance will incur a charge of 50% of all monies paid plus cost of transferring back.
– cancellations less than 7 days before the start of the program will forfeit all monies paid.
– for bookings made with 100% payment upfront, ‘deposit’, for the purpose of cancellations, will still mean 30% of total payment made.
● While we will endeavor to assist you in any way possible, any changes you wish to make to your booking after fees have been paid in full, such as late arrival, early departure, change of room etc. may necessitate extra arrangements and costs which you will be responsible for Covering.
● Participants understand that for entry to China, a visa will be required. While Cultural Keys can provide advice and guidance on obtaining the necessary visa, participants understand it is their responsibility to secure this document ahead of travel dates, and refunds will not be issued as a result of failing to get a visa. Please ask us well ahead of time if you need an invitation letter.
● Participants understand the potentially unreliable nature of Chinese society.

Participants are kindly reminded to take this into consideration when booking onward travel at the end of our programs.
● Participants agree that by making a booking with CK Martial Hearts and Cultural Keys, they understand and agree to all the Terms and Conditions as listed here. Prior to departure, all participants will be required to sign a Release of Liability, a copy of which will be provided with the deposit invoice.
