A very important benefit of membership of San Shou Kuan is your insurance. One cannot stress enough the importance of being insured when participating in any form of contact sport. Whilst all of our instructors are insured, qualified in first aid and vetted to work with vulnerable persons ( DBS ) it is imperative that you, the participant is also insured. The main benefit to you is not any compensation that you may receive through an injury but protection in case someone considers legal action against you. This is an unfortunate necessity in this day and age.
