Australian Kendo Renmei insurance for members
AKR affiliate members have the added safety of the following types of insurance –

  • Insurance Certificate of Currency. 2020-21. For use only by State or Territory Affiliates, clubs and dojo at scheduled training sessions and other scheduled events..  (Provided to and also available from your state association). PDF.
  • Player Injury Insurance. Cover for some of the costs, not covered by Medicare or other insurance, associated with an injury that occurs at any AKR affiliated club and dojo in scheduled training sessions and other scheduled events. Policy. See below for How to Make a claim.
  • Professional (Instructors) Indemnity Insurance. AKR sensei and instructors will be protected while supervising training in any AKR club or dojo for scheduled training sessions and other scheduled events. Policy.

Prior to 2007, similar state arranged insurance schemes were in place, but cover was limited to occurrences only within the members home state and not elsewhere. For example, at an interstate seminar or squad training session.

The premium fee for the Player Injury Insurance is added to the AKR affiliation fees and collected by the state and territory affiliates then passed onto the AKR with membership fees.
