Many martial arts clubs and self-defence courses ask people to sign disclaimers that basically state that if they get injured on a course, they can’t sue the instructor or the club or the company.
But a fact is that you cannot legislate for negligence, and what that means is that if an instructor or an organisation has failed to have adequate supervision in place or equipment that is fit for purpose or faulty, and someone gets injured then the injured person can sue because the disclaimer is not worth the paper it is written on.
If you’d like to learn how to supervise properly then you are welcome to join us on our next BTEC Level 3 Self-Defence Instructor Award Course or on our BTEC Level 3 Restraint Instructor Award Course (places pending of course).
