Summer Camp Report

The 2018 J.K.A.W.F. Scotland Summer Camp and Dan Grading were held 14th – 16th of August this year at the New venue near Glasgow. This venue is only 5 minutes from Glasgow Airport and in the centre of Paisley.
This was so successful that we intend to hold the event every year at this excellent venue,accommodation was less expensive than Edinburgh and the train to the centre of Glasgow only take 11 minutes and run every 15 minutes.. If flying into Edinburgh Airport the train only takes 45 minutes to Glasgow, so all in all a convenient and livly venue.
The course was Instructed by Kawasoe Sensei and Shina Sensei over the 3 days with really good and structured training for all grades. The course was attended by over 170 Black Belts and many brown and kyu grades,classes were split and Instructors changed twice daily. Both Instructors displayed great enthusiasm and effort in every class, encouraging and inspiring students to achieve greater skills.
All kyu and all gradings including 5th Dan took place on Saturday afternoon, withover 69 students taking Black Belt Gradings. Shina Sensei and Kawasoe Sensei gave advice and were very helpful in giving advice to all candidates. The pass rate was very good and everyone appreciated the support and advice given.
Helen our webmaster will update the site over the next week or so, please send in comments sign up for updates to come through to you automatically, this will keep you up to speed with the official information for the rest of the year and 2019 also. I would like to hold a Winter Course in the future as an extra with different Instructors invited, including Kawasoe Sensei of course, I will let you know.

Championships 14th November!




Attending were over 250 athletes from all over Scotland, with events to suit children and adults alike, also to organise and oversee fair play were 47 Referees and Judges.
           Every person received a commerative medal and some contestants went home with 3 or 4 different trophies, but everyone received recognition of their achievements.
          From Sensei Taylors Club and Perth dojos, came over 15 gold medallists, and 4 double gold medallists, a great achievement from the young talented athletes. The fighting amongst the adult competitors was fantastic, they had obviously put plenty of work in beforehand, giving exciting and enjoyable displays of real Karate technique. The younger athletes put in a very classy display of Kata and pre arranged fighting showing their determination and courage in each round. Spectators were in great abundance and cheered each of their clubs on to victory, a truly great day for all.
          To finish a note front C.E.O. of J.K.A. Afroeuraisa in Scotland Sensei Kenny Taylor 6th Dan J.K.A.
” A Championships which was a pleasure to officiate and participate in, the immaculate behaviour and sportsmanship that was shown by all the athletes is a credit to the Club Instructors and students. I hope to hold the sequel this coming February of the Scottish J.K.A.KATA CHAMPIONSHIPS 2016
Thank you all once again for participating and officiating at this great event “
Watch for our brilliant calendar of 2016, some great course with J.K.A.H.Q. Instructors and brand new events throughout the year

JKA Afro-Eurasia Championships – Friendly Championships 2015 successfully completed

II AEKC 2015 FWe would like to thank JKA Italia for hosting the 2nd JKA Afro-Eurasia Championships and thank all of the organizers and support staff that went into making this another resounding success of a Championship. We would also like to thank each of the 18 countries that attended the Championships, all of the athletes, Team Managers and Coaches as well as all of the supporters from these countries and all of the referees and officials that helped to keep the 2 days running. This Championship is billed as a Friendly Championship and after the weekend we can certainly say that as one of our goals for these Championships then this was a sure fire success with everyone in the arena joining hands for an excellent rendition of “Auld Lang Syne” – showing the co-operation and friendship that all countries brought.
It was a perfect area for this type of Championship with plenty of things to do before and after the Championships for the teams and supporters in a very scenic area of Italy.

A sincere thank you to Mori Sensei ( JKA WF HQ Executive Director) , Naito Sensei, Kamino Sensei and Kawasoe Sensei for their presence and endorsement of these championships.

Good times at Windsor!

A little reminder of the great course in Windsor last weekend, considered by many to be one of the best so far. A good crowd of a few hundred participants enjoying the teachings of the fabuolous senseis Mori, Ueda and Kawasoe.. Reportedly a hard (as it should be) and  high spirited, enjoyable course.
