Child Protection Policy


The children's safety is of paramount importance for all concerned: the coach's, the parents' and, of course, the child's. Thus the London Karate-Do Shoto Association subjects its instructors/coaches to the highest level of scrutiny. Every instructor is screened through the National Criminal Records Bureau and undergoes an Enhanced Disclosure Process.


Furthermore, the senior coach of this club is also a paediatrician who believes that child protection should be ensured at its highest level and so will try, where possible, to send each of his assistant coaches on child protection training courses.


The London Karate-Do Shoto Association has an extensive Child Protection Policy & Procedures Document to which every instructor/coach in the Children's Karate Club is bound. This can be viewed upon request by any parent or student.
