To ensure that all SKGB coaches have in place Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR) and are assessed as being of standard to teach Karate safely to adults and children the SKGB have now put the following in place.

 All associations/ Federations will appoint and register an assessor with the SKGB with Ratified grade of 4th Dan or above.

Associations / Federations that have no one of 4th Dan or above can request the services of an assessor from another SKGB Association / Federation.

The registered SKGB assessor will be responsible for assessing that all new coaches meet the Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR) and have been assessed using the SKGB Karate coach assessment criteria.

It will be the responsibility of the association assessor to make sure all coaching applications are complete as per SKGB requirements and to sign off the coach as being of coaching standard. Only when applications are complete should they be forwarded to the SKGB for processing.

Existing SKGB Licensed Coaches will maintain their coaching qualifications as they have  already been recognised as a qualified Karate coach by the SKGB.

All Coaches must have met Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR) before applying for a PVG or a PVG statement update.

All coach applications must supply a Self –Declaration form with applications for  PVG membership or a PVG statement update.

It is the responsibility of all associations to ensure that all Karate coaches teaching within their association / Federation have the proper coaching qualifications in place as stated by this policy document
