Qualified and approved instructors?

Yes, as you should expect.

When looking for a martial arts school for yourself or your children you should be looking for the best value for money. The cost of the training is important but should be secondary to quality and safety.

Ask every school you contact to provide satisfactory answers to the following questions before making a choice:

  • What instructor qualifications do they have?
    Our instructors are qualified and approved to the high standards expected by the Professional Unification of Martial Arts (PUMA), a national martial arts organisation whose rigorous process and quality is recognised worldwide.
  • How long have they been teaching / training?
    Our instructors must all be black belts, requiring at least four years of dedicated training. They must then have undergone comprehensive instructor training as part of the PUMA Instructor programme and be approved as an instructor by our experienced Instructor Training team.
  • Do they have appropriate instructor insurances?
    A condition of PUMA membership is that our instructors maintain and renew their insurance with our approved insurance provider.
  • Are they regularly re-assessed in first aid / child safeguarding to make sure they are up to date with current practices?
    Our instructors are required to re-qualify in first aid and child safeguarding every three years. Download a copy of our Child Safeguarding Policy.
  • Can they provide copied of their instructor / insurance / first aid / DBS (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) certificates?
    We're more than happy to, please just ask.
