I have just started at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and they have agreed to let me instruct aikido. However I need to organise my own insurance. Does anyone know of an organisation that can supply instructors and student insurance?
I don't want to join the BAF as their rules of membership are too constricting.

Thanks in advance Paul Finn

Most of the UK organisations' insurance is through Perkins Slade (http://www.perkins-slade.com/). I think they also underwrite the NCF insurance you can get if you have a BAB coaching award.

If you dont want to affiliate to the BAF, have you thought about joining any of the other organisations? There are quite a few listed at the BAB (http://www.bab.org.uk/) website.

In the UK, most clubs are members of the BAB (British Aikido Board), including the BAF. It is recognised as the governing body for all aikido in the UK. They provide a Nationally recognised coaching scheme and are able to provide insurance. Their website is here

Hope that helps

The fraternity I am in (Aiki Budo Fraternity)is a mamber of NAKMAS (national association of Karate and martial arts schools) which covers our member and instructors insurance.

Thanks,

Hi Bryan,

If I can clarify a bit..

No individuals, dojos or clubs are members of the BAB as such, rather it acts as an umbrella organisation for the various aikido associations/federations/organisations/whatever. So for example, all BAF clubs are indirectly affiliated to the BAB, but it is the BAF itself which is a member.

It isn't possible for an individual dojo to join the BAB, it would have to join one of the associations affiliated to it.

(There are about 40-odd to choose from, covering many different styles.)

They dont actually provide the insurance themselves though, they just act as a middleman. So as an independant dojo, it would probably make more sense to go direct to an insurer anyway.

BTW, a typo crept into the URL in Bryan's post above, that should read: www.bab.org.uk
