To supplement Dave's answer (post entire traceback, dedent last two 
lines), here are the essentials of your code that show the problem.

 >>> class C:
	def f(self): pass
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<pyshell#17>", line 1, in <module>
     class C:
   File "<pyshell#17>", line 3, in C
TypeError: f() missing 1 required positional argument: 'self'

You problem is that you are calling the function during the execution of 
the class statement, *before* the class is created.
Rather unusual ;-).
