CFTS Instructors Committee

The federation is run by the Club Instructors Committee, a group of experienced, qualified, insured instructors of Sandan (3rd level black belt) and above. They organise their own club’s training times and lesson plans, implement recommendations from the two committees above, and arrange any social events and beginners courses. They are supported by a Child Welfare Officer and usually by a Club Secretary.

They meet on a regular basis throughout the year to discuss any issues arising.

The Club Instructors Committee are:

CFTS Milton Keynes:

Sensei Simon McMahon and Sensei Pamela McMahon (Bletchley and Newton Longville Clubs)

Sensei Viv Wilson and Sensei Jan Wilson (Newport Pagnell and Green Park After-School Club)

CFTS Bedford:

Sensei James Saunders and Sensei Clive Betts (Clapham/Oakley Club)

Sensei Dan Young and Sensei Steve Young (Brickhill and Kempston Clubs)

Sensei James Saunders is the Instructors Committee secretary.

Sensei Pamela McMahon is currently the acting Child Welfare Officer for the Federation (as of July 2023)

Should any new CFTS clubs come into being, instructors will be invited to be part of the Club Instructors Committee, and added to this list.

CFTS Technical Committee

All roles previously taken by the Technical Committee are now run by the Club Instructors Committee.
