arts schools that are legitimate, like the Wolf-Gym
Warrington Kickboxing Studio,
will have their achievements listed for people
to view just as we have on our 'latest news' page.
Instructors will also have their own background
listed as well as clearly display their certification.
Checking the background and achievements of a
Club and its Instructors
can not only help you to decide the best places
to join, but help you to avoid 'Cowboy'
Unfortunatelty in recent times there has been
a substantial increase of people suddenly becoming
Instructors in 'Mixed-Martial-Arts
systems / Thai-Kickboxing / Freestyle-Combat'
They tell people that they don't need qualifications
and / or background experience as they are just
offering 'some personal
training fitness sessions' etc... which
is ridiculous, as professional Martial Arts coaching
is a highly skilled and very serious occupation!
If you are aware of what to look for, you will
see immediately that they have no true lineage,
( background of training and becoming certified
from a Japanese or Thai Instructor ), and any
true legitimacy to be operating within the martial
Unfortunatlety, as there is no government regulation
at this time in the U.K., all that people can
do is rely on such sources as the internet to
check websites or ask direct questions regarding
proof of hardcopies of certification. Most Doctors,
Dentisit, Solicitors etc... will have their certification
on public display as will those genuine Martial
all Martial Arts Instructors and Fitness trainers
must have Insurance! Insurance companies will
not offer this without actual Instructor certification
and full C.R.B. (
Criminal Record Bureau
C.R.B. clearance is required for anyone
that is involved in a business that involves interaction
with people on a personal level. Therefore if
a person has a criminal record, they cannot C.R.B.
clearance and therefore cannot
get Insurance. People with criminal records
should not be allowed to teach, and if you come
across any such person we would advise you to
avoid them and seek professional martial arts
instruction else where.
In some cases, false certification
is put forward by 'Cowboy'
Instructors so we suggest that you always seek
additional information on who it was that has
certified any Instructor.
Many 'Cowboy' Instructors
who do obtain false certification, will look to
'UP THEIR GRADES'
to make them seem more experienced than they genuinly
are. For example, it takes 10
years to become a 'Level 4' ( or 4th Dan ) Martial
Arts Instructor from the date that they
originally qualified as a trainer.
Currently there are at least two people operating
in the Cheshire area with less than
THREE years experience as a certified
Martial Arts Instructors and are stating that
they hold 'level 4' ( 4th Dan ) Grades therefore
falsely telling people that they have at least
10 years experience as an Instructor. We know
of this as several people have recently joined
Warrington Kickboxing Studio
after first enrolling with certain illegitimate
trainers and wasting not only their time - but
in some cases a lot of money.
All we can say is...
