The Adamson brothers, Zach and Nathan, gathered their instructors and took the necessary training for CPR/First Aid and AED on Friday, Dec. 13. The team at Seaside Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Seaside, OR felt it appropriate to know what to do in case of any medical issues on the mat.
Zach Adamson explains:
“My brother, Nathan and I felt it was crucial for all of our coaching staff to have the proper training to deal with an emergency. As our academy grows it’s becoming increasingly important for us to make sure our students are being supervised by coaches who have completed their instructor course and are current on their CPR/First Aid and AED Certification. In the event of an emergency we’re confident our staff can utilize their CPR/First Aid training to deal with the situation. Safety has always been our number one concern and these certifications give our students and their parents the peace of mind that their child is in the right hands. Academy owners should always be looking for ways to protect the longevity of your students and being prepared for the unexpected is one way we can do just that. Train safe!”
