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. Congratulations all round to participants and to all who passed their grading!   All images and footage: courtesy of Bjørn Helge Bakke, Norway (Copyrights)

Due to the great response we have had so far for participation in the inaugural JKA Afro-Eurasia Championships being held in Scotland, UK in May we are having to ask countries to send in a confirmation e-mail of their attendance.  This is to ensure that we can register their participation as we can only facilitate a certain number of countries.  Once we reach the limit we will have to inform countries that we may not be able to accept them.  The closing date for e-mail confirmations is March 29th. Please e-mail: … Please note that this does not affect the registration of your countries squad/ referees/ coach’s details – this deadline is still 12th April.  By this time all participating countries should have registered their teams either on line or by post.  Please ensure that if registering by post you allow enough time for your entries to reach the administration address by 12th April. For countries requiring UK Visa information please visit to the following website: As well as all the countries who will be attending we will also be welcoming to the Championships members of the JKA HQ Shihankai, UK Government ministers and Japanese Government officials. These Championships will showcase the best karate of Europe, Africa, Middle East and Western Asia and augment existing Championships as well as creating new opportunities for karate-ka to come together and compete.  We are very excited to be part of this and we hope that all countries will be also, We look forward to welcoming you to the Championships. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

Notice to ALL readers/users of this site!!

The instructors of the clubs affiliated can send e-mails direct to webmaster through contactpage for alterations of their club-spot on this site, i.e a few images (5-10 small jpegs..) from the club ,- Just make sure you have consent from person/s on the image! ! Any info./updates they need out send as text. No problem fixing that as the year goes along.

About use of content!:

We see that some images from the Kawasoe- wordpress site have been used on some club-webpages , and I take that as a compliment.

However, it is customary to notify/ ask permission for use of images and also credit the photographer. We would aprecciate this line of conduct to be followed in the future. Failing to do so, the clubs run the risk of being invoiced by the photographer..

All photography on Kawasoe-site (not club-sites) are Copyright : Helen Petersen unless otherwise stated ( in which case you credit the photographer stated.).

The above also applies to content copied from the site; and one quotes where it has been found or apply a link.  😉

Sounds strict, but it is a necessary line to follow and appropriate conduct.

Videos and Links..

Missing the videos ?

They are still there, now in the drop-down-menu under Gallery. Instructors: if you have any good links to similar videos out there, send the link and I will put it in there.

New Link in sidebar: JKA WF Scotland on Facebook

Do your club have a Facebook- page ?? let me know and it will be put on your club-page in drop-down-menu  if you wish..;).. use contact-page to e-mail webmaster                    🙂
