A wide range of policies that can be tailored to your needs.
Cover for both martial arts instructors and dojos.
Temporary Total Disablement cover, broken bones cover and physiotherapy sessions.
To suit the needs of your martial arts association.
Our MartialGuard Instructor policy is designed to cover the main liability insurance needs of a martial arts instructor. This includes public and products liability, as well as a 24-hour personal accident cover option, with weekly benefits of up to £500, broken bones cover and up to 10 physiotherapy sessions. Cover is on a ‘claims occurrence’ basis, meaning you are protected for incidents during your policy, even if the claim is made at a later date.
We offer a 12-month liability cover policy for martial arts clubs and associations, flexible to your needs. Options include, cover for member to member liability, tournaments and events, employers' liability with a £10 million indemnity limit, directors' and officers' liability with indemnity limit options, personal accident cover and specialist travel cover (with one-off trip and annual cover options).
Our team has over 30 years' experience providing insurance solutions to martial arts instructors, clubs and associations. This expertise allows us to understand and identify the particular risks to which you are exposed and provide a wide range of policies that can be tailored to your needs.
We have many years' experience providing cover for dojos and can offer a comprehensive package of cover for your martial arts premises, including buildings, contents, business interruption, money and glass.

Personal Accident cover provides a benefit (subject to the policy terms) if a member is injured whilst participating in Martial Arts regardless of negligence. Liability cover is an indemnity for Legal Liability.
For competitions/events organised by an Association/Club which is open for non-members to take part, the organising Association/Club is required to extend their cover for the duration of the competition/event. We will require the date, venue name, limit of indemnity and payment before cover can be issued.
The minimum age is 4 years, while the maximum age is 70 years. The maximum age will only apply to the Personal Accident policy.
It applies to members over 16 years of age only, unless the junior member is hospitalised. Benefit will be paid to the junior member for the period of the hospitalisation. The 2-week excess period will apply.
Yes, the policies are Worldwide, but exclude the USA and Canada in respect of Products Liability Cover, though cover only applies to UK domiciled persons.
