ALL NRK KARATE INSTRUCTORS ARE SAFE SPORT CERTIFIED

Sport plays a significant role in the lives of children, and as the national steward for sport in the United States, the United States Olympic Committee has an important responsibility to create positive, safe and secure environments for American athletes. To further advance the safety and well-being of all U.S. athletes – regardless of age, gender or sport – the USOC has invested in programs to shape the foundation of the safe sport movement nationally.

In 2010, the USOC convened the Working Group for Safe Training Environments and charged it with the task of developing a set of recommendations concerning misconduct in sport.

Following the Working Group’s recommendations, in early 2012, the USOC launched its SafeSport initiative, delivering a first-of-its-kind abuse prevention program that was shared through an engaged network comprised of 47 NGBs and 34 Multi-Sport Organizations with a combined reach of 73 million members. Participating organizations were encouraged to develop and tailor the SafeSport program to meet their unique needs.  

In June 2014, the USOC reaffirmed its commitment to advance the safety and well-being of American athletes by approving the creation of the U.S. Center for SafeSport – an independent entity designed to oversee education programs, and investigate and adjudicate sexual misconduct claims in sports that are managed by USOC-sanctioned NGBs. Participation in the entity – which launched in March 2017 – is a condition of continued membership in the USOC.
