Joint Aikido Council Coaching Awards

Introduction

The joint Aikido Council is committed to the education of Aikido teachers within a progressive pathway which supports the development of coaches from JAC Level 1 through to JAC Level 3.

The requirements for each level are outlined below and it is the intention that teachers progress through all levels as appropriate.  They are also designed to aid the transition for existing coaches from British Aikido Board accreditation to a system which is more closely aligned to the requirements of the United Kingdom Coaching Certificate as laid down by Sport England. It is hoped that further development of the awards will be undertaken so as to gain full accreditation by Sport England in the near future.
