Masters & Teachers

All Masters and Teachers hold a certified teaching qualification and have undergone a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (previously CRB check) to ensure we are protecting the young and vulnerable. Each Association holds member-to-member and Public Liability insurances for the Masters/Teachers, and regular spot-checks are made by the Renmei to ensure standards are not only met, but also sustained.

A list of our Masters and Teachers can be found below. Masters and Teachers in other nations have their own sites.
