Parents / guardians have the primary responsibility for the care and welfare of their children. We also ask that parents are present at the dojo during the practice at least until the member has settled into kendo. We take all precautions in maintaining the highest safety and child protection standards. However, instructors and coaches at Oxford Kendo Club can only look after the children inside the practice halls during the practice hours. It is the sole responsibility of the parents/guardians to be on time with drop-off and collection. We invite parents to also take active interest in the dojo community. Families are also encouraged to join together and we do offer discounted family rates. Please inquire for more details.

By allowing your child to participate in a kendo practice at Oxford Kendo Club, it is assumed that you are giving consent for your child to:

  • Receive first aid or medical treatment following injury or illness.
  • Be photographed as part of the normal record of activities and achievements of students at the club. Please note that occasionally pictures are also used for promotion purposes, such as the club website.
  • Receive assistance in the donning, removal or adjustment of armour/protective clothing, if necessary.
