Our clubs are committed to good practice in which we protect children and vulnerable adults from harm. Our staff and volunteers accept and recognise their responsibility to provide an environment which promotes a safe and secure environment for all participants at all times.
We are proud to have achieved the NEW Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts for ALL of our schools.
As part of this process we want to ensure that some of our policies, procedures and codes of conduct are available to our members by having them online, as well as having essential contact information freely available.
Safeguarding Statement of Intent

Accordingly, the individual club and lead instructor has a moral and legal responsibility to ensure that, when given responsibility for children below the age of 18 or vulnerable adults, the highest standards of professionalism and care will always be exercised.
Our clubs are committed to the best practices which protect children and adults at risk from harm. Staff and volunteers accept this and recognise their responsibility to provide an environment which promotes their safety and protection at all times.
To achieve this, we will;
