ELECTRONIC & SOCIAL MEDIA COMUNICATION INVOLVING JUNIORS & ADULTS
At our Martial Arts Centre Schools, we try our best to provide a great, family orientated, friendly, safe and secure environment, in which both juniors and adults can train. Our Instructors are carefully chosen, go through rigorous Instructor training courses and are Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS), checked. However, in relation to the subject of appropriate/inappropriate communication, it is not our wish to make value judgements, or interfere in the private lives of club members, but we do have a responsibility towards our students in relation to all things relating to Kuk Sool, as that is the basis of our relationship with all our school members.
At all times, the Instructors of the Martial Arts Centre have the safety and protection of the students at the forefront of their minds. Therefore, the following rules are put in place to protect our students and children. Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
FOR ADULT MEMBERS
No adult member aged 16 and over, from the Kuk Sool Won of Eastbourne, should communicate with a junior under the age of 16, from our school, or another Kuk Sool Won School, outside of class, who is not related to that junior member through electronic communication. This includes all forms of media, but is not limited to things such as phone, text, instant messaging, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
Any adult member, who is found to be communicating with a junior in this way, who is not related to that junior member, will be asked to leave the School with immediate and permanent effect. Any adult who receives communication from a junior member should inform their Instructor immediately, so that the junior member can be educated appropriately regarding the issue.
FOR JUNIOR MEMBERS
No junior member under the age of 16, from the Kuk Sool Won of Eastbourne, should communicate with an adult aged 16 and over, from our school, or another Kuk Sool Won School, outside of class, who is not related to that adult member, through electronic communication. This includes all forms of media, but is not limited to things such as phone, text, instant messaging, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
If a junior member is found to be communicating with an adult Kuk Sool Won student, who is not related to that junior member, then in the first instance, the parent/s – guardian/s of that child will be informed, in order for them to take the appropriate action to stop such communication. If after consultation with the parent/s – guardian/s, the junior member is still found to be communicating with that adult, then that junior will be asked to leave the School with immediate effect. They will be eligible to return to the School upon reaching the age of 16, at which age, they are deemed responsible for their own actions.
Any Junior member wishing to communicate with an adult member/instructor, should do so at the class, or via the official Martial Arts Centre ‘public’ Facebook page or website email.
