We are really proud of you all for being selected and and are delighted that everyone who tried out made it onto the squad.

We wish you all another super-successful year full of character building experiences!

Grace had been asked to attend the EKF National Squad selections for Kata so was unable to make the JKS England Squad selections. We’d like to thank Matt Sensei for allowing her the opportunity and we will all keep our fingers crossed as she awaits the results of her try out.

Thanks to the coaches for putting your faith in our students.

A number of our students who have been long term members of the England squad have decided to put their competitive karate on hold to concentrate on their studies as they approach crucial periods of their education. This is a brave decision and one which we are fully supportive of. Thank you to you all for everything you’ve done over the past few years at this elite level and you know the door is always open for a comeback!
