Because there is no formal process for qualifying as an instructor of
Tai Chi, Andy Wright saw that there was a significant need to
have a process of informal regulation. From personal experience
he saw all too often, unscrupulous people making all sorts of
claims as to their “qualification level” with regards to martial arts
Instruction (with the motivation mainly financial), and felt that he
needed to take the lead and set up a Regulating Group to oversee standards.
Many people will say why bother? Andy Wright has spent the years since starting
Karate (in 1985) improving himself by taking the training and qualifications he saw
as important to further his skills, whilst others just make the claims without the
underlying effort or knowledge. This undermines the value of the qualifications.
Being a true budoka, a follower of the Martial Way, he just could not pay Lip
Service to the traditions and etiquette of the Martial Arts by being a fake and
claiming he is something he is not. It would also be extremely discourteous to
the many students he has taught over the years who all trust his knowledge.
EMPLOYING UKCKS INSTRUCTORS
From a position of employment of anyone who is an Instructor with The UKCKS, it
is reasonable for you to be assured that they know what they’re doing
and are suitably qualified and insured to do so. The certification
process is now formalised and regulated but above all, The UKCKS
does not give out Instructor Status unless the candidate has met
the standards. They also need to continue annually with CPD, to
keep their status with the UKCKS.
