The information given by students on our enrolment form is retained by us and not shared with third parties other than for the reason stated above. Each member is also asked to provide two passport sized photographs (either on initial registration or at the first grading) – these are retained with the membership details and the grading record.

Legitimate interest:

This is provide you with the service you are entitled to as part of your membership. Our use will be fair and balanced, and never unduly have an impact on your rights.

For example, we may send you the details of competitions that form part of the assessment process in order to progress through the “grading system”.

In rare situations, such as an accident or medical emergency, we may have to share your personal details with the emergency services. After the accident or medical emergency, we will always try to inform you about how we had to use your information in that situation.



In specific circumstances we will collect and process your data where you have provided consent. You can at any time withdraw that consent.

External tournaments:


Other than our own competitions we may attend tournaments and events that require us to input your data on your behalf. If, or when that happens, you will be asked for “information required” knowing that we have to supply the event host with that information, in order for you to compete.

This will generally only apply to the black belt gradings. Information supplied by members as part of their grading application will not be shared beyond the examining body.
