First Aid for Martial Arts

Martial Arts classes are required to have a First Aider in attendance during classes.  Here finally, is a custom made course for the Martial Arts.


First Aid Trainer Mr Dirk Sumners, as well as having many years experience of teaching First Aid, has well over 20 years experience as a Martial Arts Instructor and holds a 4th Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-Do.  He is also the First Aid Officer for Global Taekwon-Do United Kingdom (GTUK).  This experience of the Martial Arts has resulted in a course which not only deals with common injuries associated with training in the Martial Arts but also meets the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive for first aiders working in low risk environments (eg offices, shops, residential care settings etc).


The content covers the basic essentials required to provide emergency care to a patient.


Candidates will receive training in a range of first aid skills including:


The ability to act safely and effectively when an accident or emergency occurs.

The treatment and priorities of care for an unconscious patient.

The recognition and treatment of a person in seizure.

The recognition of cardiac arrest and delivery of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
