What is Safeguarding?

The EKF fully recognises the need to make optimal provision for the safeguarding and wellbeing of children and young persons, that participate in the sport of karate (either as a self-defence art or sport environment). The EKF takes its moral and legal responsibilities seriously.

Safeguarding is ensuring the implementation of robust systems and processes and monitoring them to enable an environment for all children to participate within the sport in a way that is free from harm, abuse, violence or neglect.

A key part of safeguarding is spreading the message about keeping children safe, challenging community norms and building a culture whereby the best interests of children are central.
