FAQs

Why does my child have to train twice a week?

Twice a week training is a firm policy of OSMA. Some parents have begun asking if they can pay the usual membership rate and choose to bring their children only once a week. This is a definite no! Twice weekly training is all about motivation, quality, relationships and effective educational experience. A child training once a week is not only progressing painfully slowly and is likely to be demoralised - he or she also holds up the group requiring extra explanation and attention. We ask that you attend at least 80% of sessions (missing no more than 1 in 5 classes).

If my child does miss a session in the week what can I do?

As a member of OSMA you are entitled to attend any of the classes that are run during the week (Kidlington, Summertown, Abingdon or Botley). Please note though, that all classes in all venues run on an A and B cycle during the week, in 2 progressive sessions. If you are using 2 different venues for your child's classes you will need to ensure you take in an earlier class (Mon-Wed) and a later class (Thur-Sat) to receive the syllabus as planned.

Can I leave while my child is training?

We know that lots of clubs and groups prefer parents to leave. This is not that case at OSMA. Wherever possible we encourage parents to observe their children in class – this is particularly relevant for children up to 9 years old. Many of our best students have parents who sit and observe and make notes throughout in order to facilitate the child’s practice at home. Observing students is not possible in all venues – and we strongly recommend that if you are unable to attend classes due to other commitments, or because there is insufficient space in the venue, that you are there at the end of class to pick up any homework instructions.
