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.

Here are the types of cover that are included:
Public & Product Liability (Club Membership) - cover to protect you from claims made by third parties on your premises
Professional Indemnity (Instructor Membership) - cover to protect you from claims arising from your teaching
Abuse cover (Club & Instructor Membership) - cover to protect you from claims relating to abuse or safeguarding issues
Tournament liability cover (Bronze, Silver, Gold Club Membership) - public liability cover for tournaments organised by your club.
Member-to-member cover (Individual Membership) - cover to protect you from claims made by somebody you injure during training*
Legal expenses cover - to cover the cost of defending a claim made against you
