Worcestershire Martial Arts makes a positive contribution to a strong and safe community and recognises the right of every individual to stay safe. We firmly believe that martial arts training presents a positive opportunity for all to learn self defence, improve self confidence and develop as an individual. Every participant is entitled to do so in a safe and properly regulated environment. Accordingly, everyone involved in the delivery of martial arts has a moral and legal responsibility to ensure that, when given responsibility for young persons or adults at risk, the highest standards of professionalism and care are exercised at all times.
Our safeguarding lead and welfare officer is Sally Gleaves
