The British Judo Association provides insurance to member clubs, members and qualified coaches. See

Whether you are a participant, coach, a referee or responsible for running a club, you will find information here about the insurance, arranged by British Judo, to protect you whilst you are taking part in our sport.

Your comprehensive cover includes:

  • Personal Accident insurance – This “no fault” benefit provides cover to British Judo licence holders for specified injuries whilst taking part in judo activities recognised by the Association.
  • Civil Liability insurance – Protects all British Judo licence holders, coaches, officials, referees, clubs and their officials if they are held responsible and/or are negligent causing an injury to another licence holder or official or to a third party.

It is recommend that all BJA members check to ensure that both their club and coach are correctly and currently insured through the BJA. If members training either at a club that is not a current member of the BJA or with a coach that isn’t a current BJA qualified coach, then their personal insurance is invalid.
