Proaction Martial Arts is proud to announce that we have been awarded the Safeguarding Certificate from Sport England for the second year in a row. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing a safe environment for our students to learn martial arts.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that our staff, members, and other individuals connected to our activities, operations and programmes do no harm to children and adults at risk. We are committed to:

Protecting Vulnerable Individuals: Many students, especially children and vulnerable adults, trust us with their physical and emotional well-being. Safeguarding measures ensure they are safe from harm, abuse, or exploitation within our training facilities.

Building Trust: When our students and their families know that we have rigorous safeguarding practices in place, it builds trust. They can feel confident in our commitment to their safety.

Mr Tom Nicholson, Chief Instructor, and founder of Proaction Martial Arts, said, “Receiving the Safeguarding Certificate for the second year in a row is a significant achievement for us. It reaffirms our commitment to providing a safe environment for all our students and their families.

“Safeguarding is not just a requirement; it’s a foundation of our Club’s values and principles. The safety and well-being of our students is at the heart of everything we do. This ensures that all our members can focus on their martial arts journey with the peace of mind that their safety is our priority.”

Our Club’s trained safeguarding offers are Mrs Jas Nicholson and Nic Frost. If you have any concerns regarding a safeguarding issue, you can contact them directly on or 07710 821 777 and they will treat your concern with the greatest sensitivity.
