Insurance for Shuai Jiao Coaching and Participation

Insurance Requirement
Participation in Shuai Jiao as with most martial arts carries with it the attendant risk of personal injury. It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that they are adequately insured to participate in Shuai Jiao; and to make sure that their membership and insurance does not lapse.

You can apply for public liability insurance and member to member insurance as a Coach (Instructor) teaching Shuai Jiao in a BSJU Accredted School, as part of your annual membership fee.

You can apply for member to member insurance as an Athlete (Student) participating in Shuai Jiao in a BSJU Accredited School, as part of your annual membership fee.

BSJU Accredited Schools
BSJU accredited school status is only issued to schools that have achieved the required high standards to teach Shuai Jiao in the United Kingdom. BSJU accredited schools demonstrate a commitment to continuous improvement, development and promotion of Shuai Jiao in the United Kingdom.

To be accredited by the BSJU, Shuai Jiao schools must fulfil the following criteria:
  • Coaching competence as trainers and experienced practitioners of Shuai Jiao - certified by the BSJU
  • Coaching, Safeguarding and First Aid competence as part of the minimum operating standards
  • Shuai Jiao learning programmes cover the standardised curriculum and learning outcomes
  • Schools provide the appropriate level of teaching, support, tutoring and assessment to enable all students to gain BSJU certification.
The award of accreditation is made to the school and held by the Head Coach (Chief Instructor). All BSJU Coaches must hold a current DBS Check and have undertaken approved Safeguarding training, approved First Aid training, and BSJU Coaching training, to validate their coaching credentials, and to be authorised and licenced to teach Shuai Jiao in the United Kingdom.

Please contact your BSJU Coach (Instructor) to obtain your school location (post code) and school authentication code, to proceed with your membership application (or renewal) to obtain appropriate insurance cover.
