Reporting Absence

If you’re sending us a message to let us know you won’t be in class, firstly thanks – it’s important we know to ensure the register is correct, but please remember you need to do this via phone, text or email only as these are the only things we check at the school.  We don’t check social media etc. at the school so Facebook messages etc. won’t get read. Thanks!

Master Olpin’s mobile is 07973 368304 for text or calls, or you can email

Queries about monthly payments

If you budget your membership via monthly payments please remember that if you have any queries or need to make any changes to bank details you need to do this directly with DFC.

Once they’re set up, DFC handle all the admin and simply send me a report at the end of the month.   That’s exactly what we pay them for so we don’t have to get bogged down with dealing with individual admin for 50-odd students.

You can phone them on 01908 422007 or email them on  

The school reference is 2368 Ilyokwan Black Belt Academy and your reference will be the payee and student name.
