Endorsed Training Providers


ITKD members encouraged to take part in the service offered by our Endorsed Training Providers, for the mutual benefit all involved.

All ETPs are asked to communicate with the club instructor of any itkd members to make sure the instructor consents to their student training with the ETP alongside their regular club sessions.

Providers from any field of expertise can apply to become an ETP. For example Personal Trainers, Gyms, First Aid Course Providers, or any service that will help to upskill our members and/or instructors.

Below is a list of our current ETPs.
