Free Covid-Aware Martial Arts Instructor Qualification

The UK’s First Dedicated Martial Arts Instructor Qualification To Make Clubs Covid-Safe & Covid-Aware

The UK’s First Dedicated Covid-19 Martial Arts Instructor Qualification To Help Clubs Re-Open Safely

We know this is uncertain times for everybody and for martial arts Coronavirus has had a devastating impact. Whilst there may be some basic Covid-19 Awareness courses available, none until now have been custom-built for martial arts instructors.

We have created the UK’s first martial arts specific qualification to help make clubs ‘Covid-Aware’. The course will help clubs understand, control and mitigate the risks posed by Coronavirus during a phased re-opening of dojos; from online, to outdoor to indoor classes.

The qualification provides both the knowledge and skills to operate in a Covid-Aware setting, as well as a wider exit-strategy to help clubs mitigate the damage Coronavirus is having on the future survival of their business or community group.

This entire course and certification is provided completely free of charge to every BMABA instructor.

We have completely self-funded the creation and delivery of this course with no support or funding from Sport England. 

What does the course cover?

We have built this qualification from the ground up to cover not just Coronavirus itself (in terms of spotting signs and how the virus spreads) but also specifically how this impacts teaching and how clubs can mitigate these risks. The course forms an exit-strategy to the wider and longer term impacts posed by Covid-19 to help instructors plan and launch a safer return to martial arts.
