Martial Arts Young Children and Tots learning Discipline, Confidence and Self-Control

Local Leeds North Club, AEGIS Martial Arts and Leadership Academy, is leading the charge in sports safeguarding, having successfully attained the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts “mark”.

AEGIS Martial Arts Leeds Receives it's Safe Guarding Mark

Achieving the Safeguarding Code, demonstrates AEGIS’s commitment to upholding its duty-of-care to the community and young people and recognises AEGIS as a martial arts provider that has reached and effectively maintained good safeguarding standards. The Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts has been created so that parents and carers can clearly identify a martial arts provider that have demonstrated that they have reached and maintained good safeguarding standards and can make informed decisions when selecting a club for their child.

Sue Harrison, Stakeholder Marketing at the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts said:

“We are delighted to see that so many clubs, including AEGIS Martial Arts, have successfully attained the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts."

“When making choices about martial arts schools, parents and carers can easily determine, and be reassured that clubs in their local area are committed to safeguarding and upholding safe practices for their children if they display the Safeguarding Code ‘mark’.”

Master Bradley Tasker, Chief Instructor at AEGIS Martial Arts Horsforth, said: "We are proud to have yet again earned the Safeguarding Mark. It gives our members and students peace of mind and confidence that all of our Instructors are trained to the highest standard and we feel Safeguarding is a very important part of that."

Developed in consultation with Sport England, representatives from martial arts governing bodies, and leading safeguarding experts, the Code is funded by the National Lottery and was launched by the Sports Minister in 2018. To date, over 1300 clubs and settings have now attained the Code and these can be viewed via our interactive map;
