Optional Insurance and Licensing Facilities from the British Wado Federation.

Important: It is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT, in the UK, that all participants of any martial-art have adequate insurance cover. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their licence is up-to-date and valid. Licences must be in the possession of the holder at all times within a Dojo environment for inspection purposes.  

Open Events: Martial-arts insurances rarely cross from one governing body to another. Ensure you have adequate insurance cover if you wish to participate in events ‘outside’ of your regular affiliation, as you may have to take out special additional cover. Alternatively, check to see if the event you are considering to participate in covers you; as they may have arranged a special insurance cover implemented for the event
