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; they are well known and respected members. The Association along with the Academy require that all club instructors who teach junior classes obtain their DBS 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, a signed CPP as well as an up to date first aid certificate. These are renewed every 3 years. Instructors carry out regular risk assessments and H & S.
