Safe Guarding

At ESKA Karate we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment in all club related activities for our instructors and students.  We believe that our students and instructors should be given equal opportunities, free from bullying, abuse, or any other form of unacceptable behaviour.

We are excited to have successfully achieved the “Sport England Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts” which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to safer sport. Parents can read about why this is so important to us here:
