Instructor Protocol

The Budo Shin Ryu Kempo Jujitsu Academy does not employ full time instructors as it is a non profit based organisation.The club is run solely as a hobby and recreational activity.ALL instructors are unpaid volunteers. It is not the policy of the Academy to allow an unknown instructor to take sole control of a class under any circumstances. Martial arts instructors generally have studied and trained in a club for a number of years before being invited to instruct on a regular basis. All instructors in charge of clubs have a history of service to their club and the Association and are well known and respected members. The Association along with the Academy require that all club instructors who teach junior classes obtain their CRB Disclosures as a professional tool. No-one with an unsuitable background will be permitted to teach martial arts at the Academy under Mushin Budo Association. Instructors also must have have Professional Indemnity insurance as well as an up to date first aid certificate.
