Are you using your resources to defend your dojo

The longer you practice your art, the more skilled and knowledgeable you become, and the quicker you can respond to an adversary’s threats and attacks. Through years of dedication to your art and guidance from experienced instructors, you learn to become a more proficient martial artist. By following guidance provided by experienced risk management instructors, the same proficiency is true for maintaining well-managed loss prevention strategies to protect your martial arts school.

The Glossary of Insurance and Risk Management Terms defines loss prevention as a risk management technique that seeks to reduce the possibility that a loss will occur or reduce the severity. Insurance “black belts” that provide this service for Markel’s insured are risk solution services professionals (a.k.a. Team RSS). Team RSS is well-trained to understand what exposures martial arts schools might face and offer strategies to help defend against them. 

Team RSS can develop action plans to help mitigate loss potential and assist in better understanding issues that may impact your martial arts business. Team RSS helps create a safe and sustainable working environment for customers and employees and assists in reducing business expenses using industry-proven loss prevention strategies.
