Kokusai Budoin UK is committed to helping our members, instructors and dojos to access a wide range of services built specifically for martial artists. These provide a range of standard documentation, I.T. services, courses, gradings and other services.
We offer a range of memberships services and can ratify gradings in the UK via our Grading Board which is made up of senior instructors all specialising in a specific martial arts style. Gradings of 3rd dan and below can also be ratified and authorised in Japan providing you with a direct confirmation from Japan of your grade. Gradings over 3rd dan that you wish conferring in Japan can be booked and sat at one of the international events.
We offer in house specifically designed first aid courses for members, instructors and assistant instructors, club coaches and dojo leaders. The course is backed by AOFA who was the lead for HSE first aid until recently. We have subsidised courses which we run regulalrly across the country and provide you with full certification and insurance if required.
DBS CHECKS (CRB)
We can provide DBS checks which we carry out, fill in the paperwork and process for you. These are not mandatory in many areas, but provide reassurance to all students that a transparent open background check has been carried out and can be viewed online to members. These are also useful and sometimes mandatory when teaching children especially in public centres such as Leisure Centres, etc.
Student insurance cover is £5,000,000 member/member and public liability only. This is free of charge to members and provides cover should they injure another or damage property while training which results in a claim being lodged against them personally.
Instructor insurance is also available and comes free as part of our Instructor membership.
