Windsor J.K.A. Course 2020 Cancelled

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great regret I have to inform you of the cancellation of the 2020 Windsor J.K.A. Course.

This is due to the Covid-19 Virus and the closure  and cancellation of flights and gatherings in the U.K. and Europe.

This situation is beyond our control as I am sure you understand, we must put the safety of individuals as a priority, therefore we have no option but to take this course of action in line with Government advice.

We will update the website on a regular basis for your information

 

Thank you

Kenneth Taylor

The course will still go ahead as planned, all Instructors are booked and approval given by J.K.A.H.Q.

Kawasoe Sensei is resident in London and that is good. Regarding the Corona Virus situation, only a outright ban on all events would result in rescheduling the course. We hope you will al attend and that the situation will be resolved by this time.

We will of course keep you informed through the Kawasoesensei.wordpress.com website on a regular basis.

Look forward to seeing you all in Windsor

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.

ON SATURDAY 14TH NOVEMBER 2015 WAS HELD THE GREAT

SCOTTISH 2015 JAPAN KARATE ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIPS

Collage

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.

Heriot Watt course 2013

DSC04770

Some information on the J.K.A Official Course at Edinburgh this year, attending were Sensei Mori M.D. J.K.A.H.Q. Tokyo, Sensei Kamino, Sensei Naito from Italy and Sensei Kawasoe from U.K.

This year we also held an official J.K.A. Referees and Judges course, this followed on from the April Course in Windsor London with many candidates receiving their official J.K.A. qualifications in Judging and Refereeing, from J.K.A H.Q.  The course was over 3 days with practical and theory exams taking place, also new candidates took part for the experience and the course was free and the attendance was really good.

The training consisted of two classes each day, changing Instructors after each class, it was the largest course held in the U.K. with J.K.A. and the instructors structured it tremendously well. The variety of teaching is a credit to the superb quality of these Individuals and their ability to build classes covering all aspects from beginners to the highest grades. We thank members from over 15 countries who attended; this is what it is about, friendly environment, quality of J.K.A. instructors, and helping people to attain their goals in Grading and Refereeing, not forgetting improving their karate skills, the most important.

Next year we will have an April course with J.K.A.H.Q. Instructors in London, everyone is welcome, our courses are open to all Shotokan practitioners.

JKA Afro-Eurasia is growing with clubs and Associations joining on a monthly basis, this is great news for J.K.A.H.Q.  As the membership increases year upon year we are arranging many more activities to establish the open door policy of JKA Afro-Eurasia and the J.K.A.H.Q. Keep checking our website for updated information on J.K.A. activities throughout the world.

The future is looking bright, come and join us. JKA Afro- Eurasia is for everyone who would like to be a part of the J.K.A.H.Q. Organisation. For details e mail or contact us anytime.

JKA AFRO-EURASIA CHAMPIONSHIPS – PAISLEY, SCOTLAND MAY 2013

DSC_0427

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.
