Qualified BSF Instructors

The British Sombo Federation the governing body for Sambo in the UK decided at the AGM in January that the time had come for our Coaches/Instructors should have a unified Standard. In the past we allowed each Affiliated Association to prepare their own Award Scheme for Coaches/Instructors this led a multitude of different standards which was confusing to our members and to UKSport.
It was decided to appoint 3 Technical Directors John Clarke Sport Sambo, Matthew Clempner Combat Sambo, Allan Clarkin CombatSombo. These 3 would design an Instructors Award Scheme for their various styles of Sambo. The Instructors Award scheme would be the first step in introducing a complete Coaching Award System. John Clarke has started on the next step by developing a Coach Program and Matthew Clempner is looking into The Teaching & Learning Academy, which is autonomously led by a consortium of Universities and offers a professional award at two different levels for anyone involved with teaching or coaching the Martial/Combat Arts.
The first Sport Sambo Instructors Course was held at Sittingbourne at the end of January. 9 Samboist took part in the event travelling from Kent, Essex, Bedford, Somerset, British Army, London, Berkshire and Hertfordshire quite even spread from the southern part of Britain, All passed the exam and were awarded a certificate the following are recognised as Official BSF Instructors some have yet to complete their paper work i.e. First Aid Certificate and PI Insurance this is required before they are allowed to teach and be fully authenticated. Each Qualified Instructor has to renew their award every 2 years.
