  • current contact details will be kept on all instructors for the purpose of improved communication
  • all instructors will hold current first aid certification to ensure a minimum level of competence in dealing with life threatening emergency situations during karate practice
  • status of the accredited instructor will be improved due to their superior knowledge
  • instructors will have an improved and more effective commitment to their instruction if they are AKF Accredited Karate Instructors


  • 16 years or older
