EGKA Insurance

EGKA Public Liability Policy Risk Insurance

The EGKA maintains Public Liability and Personal Accident Insurance cover for all current EGKA members. A copy of the current EGKA insurance policy certificate can be downloaded by clicking here.

Please note that you lose insurance cover the moment your EGKA membership lapses. If you train without EGKA membership, you train uninsured and you therefore become personally liable for any claims made against you should you accidentally injury another student. So always make sure your EGKA membership is up to date.

MartialGuard Instructor Insurance

It is mandatory that all EGKA recognised instructors and assistant instructors maintain their own personal instructor indemnity insurance.

Although instructors are able to choose who they insure with, many use MartialGuard (now owned by Towergate Insurance, formerly TL Risks Solutions).

When you visit the Towergate Insurance website, select the left hand menu option ‘How to Apply’, then select option 1 ‘Buy your MartialGuard Instructors Insurance online now’.

When asked to name the association you are connected with, you must enter "English Goju Ryu Karate Association" in full before carrying out a search. Using just the EGKA abbreviation does not work.

Disclsoure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks formerly known as CRB Checks

The EGKA requires all their officers, instructors and assistants to provide copies of a DBS check at least every three years. You can apply for DBS check by clicking here.
