EKF Another Failed Governing Body?

Dear EKA

Your web site is a breath of fresh air. It's a shame that the EKF cant do the same. Looking from the outside in, it appears that the EKF board don't listen to it's members, we still have nothing from them regarding a statement on Sport England.

The letter on your web site regarding the resignation of the AMA from the EKF, is very interesting. The AMA are a very large group that the EKF where not able to hold onto. I ask who's next? It appears that the President of the EKF told a pork pie at the AGM.

I wasn't at the AGM but our chief instructor was, his comments where that the EKF board got hit badly. However he was excited with the new members coming in and honestly thought that it was a new beginning. It appears it's not. With the rejection by Sport England and groups leaving the EKF, the writing seems to be on the wall for the EKF. Everyone will be gone at this rate this time next year.


When is Karate going to get it right? When are all these egos of the people at the top going to be put to one side so karate can move on.
