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.
