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 “

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.

JKA UKTKF Championships in Leeds 2014

The organisers of the JKA/ UKTKF National Championships in Leeds would like to thank each and every competitor who took part in the event.

You all helped to make the Championships a resounding success and also help in the smooth running of them. The level of karate was very high and it was a joy to watch and somewhat difficult to judge at times.  We hope that everyone had a great Champs and we would especially like to congratulate all of the medal winners – well done.
See you all at the next UK Championships.

The Organisers would like to thank all of the athletes, Team Managers, Coaches, Spectators, Referees, support staff and VIP’s who made the inaugural JKA Afro-Eurasia Championships a resounding success. We would like to thank everyone for all of the positive feedback that we have received and we are so happy that people have raved about the hospitality and the organisation of the Championships. We appreciate all of the hard work in the training and the travelling that a lot of people had to do to attend these Championships and without all of the athletes and their support staff then we could not have been able to make this a success.
We would also like to thank Mori Sensei for taking the time, along with Kamino, Naito and Kawas…oe Senseis to hold a referees seminar on the Friday and to give more practical training and guidance to all of the referees attending the Championships.
Again we would like to thank Mori Sensei for his positive comments and words of encouragement on the Championships. It is a great honour to have the backing and support of the JKA HQ for these Championships.
Lastly we really appreciate the time that members of Government, both national and local, gave to attend the Championships and we were pleased that Jim Murphy MP accepted the post of Honorary President for the Championships. Along with Mr Murphy we had Hugh Henry MSP and Mark McMillan Local Council Leader attending. Plus we had the backing of Douglas Alexander MP.
We thank everyone who participated and attended the Championships – it was all of you who made this a success. We are grateful to one and all.
