Safeguarding is something that we all have to think of – not only in Martial Arts, but in our every day lives.
WAKO GB is committed to working in partnership with all agencies to ensure that information and training opportunities are available to ensure best practice when working with children, young people and vulnerable adults. Adopting best practice will help to safeguard them from actual or potential abuse as well as reducing the likelihood of allegations being made about coaches and other adults in positions of responsibility in Kickboxing.
Whether training in a local or regional club, or representing their region or country, we believe that all children, and vulnerable young people have the right to enjoy their sport safely. Equally their parents or carers need to be confident that their children are respected and kept safe.
