Who can participate?

Everyone. All genders, martial arts backgrounds, and fitness levels are welcome.

Is it guaranteed that all the coaches listed in the current lineup will be there?

No, we can't offer that guarantee because many of our coaches are also active fighters. In the case that one of them gets signed for a fight that collides with the FightCation dates, we will find a suitable replacement.

What is the cancellation policy?

We can only accept a cancellation if you have independently found a replacement participant who will take your place. In the case that you need to cancel for personal or health reasons, we highly recommend that you take out travel insurance (e.g. ADAC).

Can I pay in installments?

Yes, you can pay in installments via PayPal. Simply select PayPal as the payment method at checkout and, after logging in, click on the "Ratenzahlung" option. The entire process is handled via PayPal, and we assume no liability.

Can I share a room with my friend?

Of course. Just let us know in the comment section in the shopping cart when you book your ticket or send us an email at info@chinkilla.de
