Martial Arts Accident & Liability Insurance

Participation in today’s Martial Arts can provide physical fitness, discipline, and entertainment… but can also result in accident andinjury. In the past, accident and liability coverage for Martial Arts School or Studios was either too costly, too limited, or not available at all. Individuals were either forced to pay extremely high insurance premiums, or to run programs without proper insurance protection; running the risk of personal exposure to lawsuits or a participant’s injury claim.

However, now a comprehensive program has been developed to specifically cover the inherent risks involved in running a Martial Arts School or Studio. This Martial Arts Accident and Liability Insurance Program is designed to help eliminate the financial and emotional burden one can incur as a result of a lawsuit or participant injury claim.
