Graham Slater has 45 years of martial arts experience and over 19 years working with insurance companies. As a licensed AFSA, Graham is uniquely placed to discuss what cover is available to you, what you are actually covered for and how to get the best price.
Don’t risk your livelihood to a broker who doesn’t know what you teach or how you run your club. The problem instructors are often faced with is not knowing how to research insurance, or how to interpret the policy wording so that they know what they are buying, this is where Martial Arts Australia comes in. Some policies are not fit for purpose especially when it comes to running a martial arts school, you need a specialist sports insurance package. We make sure the policy wording covers everything a club owner needs, no grey areas and we help you in the unlikely event you have to make a claim and that’s priceless.
