Safeguarding Code in Martial ArtsKazoku Ju-Jitsu is leading the charge in sports safeguarding, having successfully attained the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts “mark”.

Achieving the Safeguarding Code demonstrates Kazoku Ju-Jitsu’s commitment to upholding its duty-of-care to the community and young people and recognises Kazoku Ju-Jitsu as a martial arts provider that has reached and effectively maintained good safeguarding standards. The Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts has been created so that parents and carers can clearly identify a martial arts provider that have demonstrated that they have reached and maintained good safeguarding standards and can make informed decisions when selecting a club for their child.

Sue Harrison, Stakeholder Marketing at the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts said:

“We are delighted to see that so many clubs, including Kazoku Ju-Jitsu, have successfully attained the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts.

“When making choices about martial arts schools, parents and carers can easily determine, and be reassured that clubs in their local area are committed to safeguarding and upholding safe practices for their children if they display the Safeguarding Code ‘mark’.”

Dan Verghese, Senior Instructor at Kazoku Ju-Jitsu, said:

“Kazoku Ju-Jitsu is a club with a long history of teaching adults and children in the Maidenhead, Marlow and High Wycombe area. We take safeguarding very seriously and are proud to have achieved the Safeguarding Code, demonstrating our good practice to parents and carers of our young or vulnerable students.”

Developed in consultation with Sport England, representatives from martial arts governing bodies, and leading safeguarding experts, the Code is funded by the National Lottery and was launched by the Sports Minister in 2018. To date, over 500 clubs have now attained the Code and these can be viewed via our interactive map https://www.safeguardingcode.com/local/map/
