With constant concerns from parents about adults working with children and Police Checks, we are asked on a regular basis about whether we have been vetted.


All Chief Instructors, instructors & trainee instructors (of 18 or above), have been police checked and each have a current DBS (originally known as Enhanced CRB check) certificate!. This is a rule Zoku sticks by without fail, to provide and promote good practice and follow safeguarding procedures.

1) Have Instructor teaching qualifications issued by MAIUK (Martial Arts Instructor UK programme) and attend these courses every 2 years

2) All 3 are fully insured with 'Protectivity'

3) Have an excellent 25 year reputation and history of running their karate clubs.

4) Sensei Sarah has a level 3  Child Education qualification in teaching which also includes child psychology, safeguarding (designated person),  FGM Awareness, PREVENT and other certificates..
