Full Insurance Cover
Full Student Insurance Cover is a compulsary requirement in the practice of martial arts offering you and your family total confidence that you are fully protected against possible accident or injury from day one.
Full Student Insurance Cover is public liability inurance worth up to £2 million, so in the unlikely event you should suffer an accident or injury during class, or you accidentally injure someone else, then you are fully protected. Even better, Martial Arts Allinace offers you the first month of insurance cover FREE, to allow you the chance to trial martial arts first before signing up for full cover when your trial period ends.
