We’re thrilled to announce the introduction of a new range of BMABA specialist martial arts instructor qualifications for martial arts safeguarding. Created by industry experts, our new Safeguarding In Martial Arts Qualification and our new Lead Safeguarding Qualification for Martial Arts provides a comprehensive and truly affordable option for clubs and instructors who are striving to safeguard their members effectively.
We’ve spent months building the two courses. Specifically aimed at martial arts instructors and built around the work we all do in the dojo, the courses are designed to be as straight forward, interesting and eye-opening as possible.
We can now offer two courses directly in-house;
We provide safeguarding qualifications free of charge to all Silver, Gold and Platinum members. For Bronze members, the cost is from just £9.99 ‘all-in’ and this includes certification.
We also bundle safeguarding qualifications into assistant and trainee instructor memberships, as well as volunteer memberships without cost.
Available Courses & Costs
BMABA Safeguarding In Martial Arts Qualification
What does the safeguarding qualification cover and how does it work?
Built off the back of our decade long work regulation martial arts and working with clubs, students and LADOs on safeguarding, the BMABA safeguarding qualification aims to provide an in-depth training course that meets the minimum standards set for instructors, clubs and assistants.
Our courses are delivered entirely online with a combination of text, audio and video. The course has regular assessments throughout using our interactive online learning software. Certification is awarded on completion.
The course covers all aspects of identifying what safeguarding is and what a concern might look like, how concerns should be dealt with and how the reporting process works. We also provide a separate lead safeguarding qualification for those working as the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

Safeguarding In Martial Arts Assessment
BMABA Lead Safeguarding In Martial Arts Qualification
What does the BMABA martial arts lead safeguarding qualification cover and how does it work?
The BMABA Lead Safeguarding Qualification is designed exclusively for ‘DSLs’ (Designated Safeguarding Leads) and Welfare Officers. The course goes beyond the standard safeguarding scope to expand on the depths of lead safeguarding including aspects of setting up safeguarding policies, managing internal safeguarding concerns and how to liaise with statutory authorities, such as the Police and LADO.
This is a recommended course for any lead instructor and is compulsory for any club who does not have BMABA mandated as their safeguarding lead.
We’ll use a blend of in-house and external videos to help demonstrate key subject matters, including two 60min+ pre-recorded webinars, complimented with case studies and written notes.
