UKBJJA INSURANCE

why do you need it?

If a training partner, student or member of the public gets injured and decides to take action against you, the costs can easily run into thousands, even for minor injuries. Without adequate insurance, you risk losing your livelihood as well as a substantial amount of money – not to mention the stress of defending a claim. Individual coverage is included in your UKBJJA membership.

Club membership includes £5m public and product liability for your gym/club/academy – and it also covers your students, provided they are paid up individual members of the UKBJJA. Tournament insurance is also included.

Our insurance is provided by Towergate, underwritten by Allianz. It provides cover for the following activities: Brazillian Ju Jitsu, Grappling, Judo, Kick Boxing, Martial Arts Based Fitness, Martial Arts Based Wrestling, Martial Arts Wrestling, Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai, Muay Thai Boxing, Self Defence, Sparring (Martial Arts), Sport Boxing ( Martial Arts Related), Submission Wrestling, Thai Boxing, Yoga, and Kali club.

Please note this only provides cover if someone you makes a claim against you in case of injury; it is not personal injury cover or health insurance.
