We want everyone to have the best possible involvement in Taekwondo.

We strive to make sure that everyone who takes part in our sport is safe and happy.


Everyone in our sport must ensure that:

  • The welfare of a child is paramount.
  • Whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity, they have the right to protection from abuse.
  • Any suspicions and allegations of abuse and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • They value children and young people and listen to and respect them
  • They create a positive culture and climate.


Our Safeguarding Policy lays out in more detail what we expect from everyone, and the action that we will take should things need addressing.

British Taekwondo Safeguarding Policy

If you have any concerns then please contact Liz Behnke (National Lead Safeguarding Officer).

We accept that that voicing concerns can be hard, but we want our sport to be a safe one and your concerns will be dealt with sensitively.
