Kokusai Budoin UK is committed to helping our instructors and dojos provide much higher service and standards for safety and protection to its members. Our awards act as a recognised award of an instructor or club making all the efforts it can to put in place the correct procedures.
Our instructor award is given to instructors who have put in place the correct procedures, training and health and safety advice to protect their members and give them the best coaching possible. A Black Belt does not automatically make people an instructor and additional training is required to cover all of the items that provide a safe and positive working environment for their students.
Our club award is a centre of excellence award that recognises the commitments and checks put in place by its instructors and coaches to ensure a safe and effective child friendly club. This covers many of the items under our instructor award but also many general club issues and policies which should be in place and provide the public with a clear understanding of the running of the club, etc.
