Safeguarding & Welfare at SAJC

We are proud to have met the requirements to be awarded the
Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts.

We have successfully achieved this award every year since we adopted it in 2020. (Prior to that we had been a Clubmark registered club)

For more information on this scheme:
