IMAC Martial Arts Ireland is a National Governing Body for Martial Arts in Ireland. IMAC is a multi-disciplinary martial arts body and currently represents martial arts clubs throughout the 32 counties of Ireland.
The new National Vetting Bureau Bill requires anyone teaching young people to have been vetted. The IMAC National Vetting programme has been developed in partnership with the National Vetting Bureau. IMAC requires all of its registered instructors, assistant instructors and volunteers to engage fully with the IMAC National Vetting programme. This process aims to ensure that instructors have no previous prosecutions or convictions that would make them unsuitable to teach Martial Arts to children or vulnerable adults.
IMAC is inviting nominations for the 2014 IMAC Volunteer Ambassador Awards.
Each nominee should be someone who captures the spirit of Volunteering upon which much of the Irish Martial Arts community is built and sustained. They should be someone who’s contribution to the development of Martial Arts has had a significant impact upon their community, their club, their Art or Martial Arts in general on a regional or national level.
