Masters of Martial Arts Academy are proud to announce we have been awarded the
new National Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts ‘mark’
So what does it mean?
In a nutshell, Masters of Martial Arts Academy Blackburn has been through a rigorous
process to ensure we have implemented up to date safeguarding policies, practices
and procedures to give all students and parents/carers the peace of mind that we
do all the right things, not just in terms of children, but also vulnerable adults too.
It is overseen by experts in safeguarding such as the Child Protection in Sport Unit
(NSPCC) and Sport England.
