As a large international martial arts organisation, GKR Karate is able to ensure that high standards apply throughout its various branches in various countries through the application of its Instructor Accreditation Program. GKR Karate can only maintain its excellence in the teaching of karate through the quality of its instructors.
In order to become a GKR Karate accredited instructor, an individual must undertake a three stage program. Firstly we undertake the appropriate police checks to ensure that there is nothing in the background of an instructor which would give GKR Karate cause for concern. GKR Karate requires its instructors to be of good character, and such checks are important, particularly when instructors are entrusted with the care of children. Secondly, we require that an instructor successfully undertakes an appropriate level first aid course. Thirdly, an individual is assessed by a Senior Instructor on his or her skills in both technical karate and the ability to teach. GKR Karate can only maintain its excellence in the teaching of karate through the quality of its instructors. The qualities GKR Karate requires of its instructors relate to their abilities in karate, their teaching skills and their personal attributes as individuals.
