childrenEver since its inauguration on 1stSept 2000, the Professional Unification of Martial Arts has worked endlessly to safeguard and promote a healthy environment for its students.

Its comprehensive Child Safeguarding Policy was designed under the advisement of the NSPCC, and has since been copied by many other martial arts organisations.

Each instructor undergoes a yearly Child Safeguarding seminar and has 10 Child Safeguarding Standards and Mandates to follow. This has become our code of conduct when teaching children.

P.U.M.A. has a dedicated Child Safeguarding Team which has been put in place to act as a point of contact for members and their families, to run professional and coherent child safeguarding education for all instructors, and to promote the standards and mandates.

It also employs a Child Safeguarding Officer whose role is to head the team and to liaise with Police, Social Services and other associated multidisciplinary organisations.

All instructors hold current CRB Enhanced disclosure documents as well as First Aid, Indemnity Insurance and Instructing Qualifications.

P.U.M.A. has always taken its responsibility very seriously and actively helps the police and social services prosecute anyone who is seen to be a danger to its students.
