Additional Articles on Insurance for Martial Arts Schools

SFIC is one of the few insurance companies that only focuses on martial arts, fitness, and sports. They know our business. That is critical when getting coverage. There are a number of situations that a regular insurer would not know about that can create massive liability for you. SFIC has been working with schools since 1986. They get my highest recommendation.
