We think it is important to have a quick overview on Martial Arts Insurance so you know that you can obtain the best policy wording and price for your business. Insurance can protect all parties including the operator / chief instructor, other instructors, admin / sales staff and of course the students / members in the unfortunately event that an accident occurs. Getting the best insurance package to cover all your activities can be difficult because there are a number of providers in Australia that have very similar products and all look the same, but they may not be fit for purpose.

Martial Arts Australia’s pledge over the past 20 years has been to help make the insurance process easy and as painless as possible on the hip pocket. We know martial arts and how clubs / associations / promoters operate so we can match you to the right policy at the right price without any grey areas. We don’t want you assuming that you are covered in a certain area of your business when you are not. Ask the questions and get the facts so you have peace of mind.

So how do you find the right package for your operation at the best price? You have to do your homework.

Graham Slater has 47 years of martial arts experience and two decades 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 they know what they are buying, this is where Martial Arts Australia comes in. 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.
