As a new student it is always important to ask this question, because we are teachers and coaches and therefore we should have the respective qualifications. The Chief Instructors and Assistant Instructor have the appropriate recognised certification for the black belt grade they hold. They have also have coaching qualifications and first aid qualifications. In addition Sensei Fred Bateman regularly has Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) (previously called CRB) up to date. They all have their licence and insurances in place to teach their martial arts. More information about the instructors can be found on the Instructors Page (Instructors). Furthermore, the Chief Instructor is regularly, a minimum of 6 times a year, going for further training with their Sensei. Thus their knowledge is constantly being improved.
