Dear EKF Board

I was at the EKF squad training session yesterday. I feel I need to make my views known as I don't know of any other way of getting my views to the correct people, so thank you to the Editor of this site in allowing me to do so. I haddn't heard of this site until yesterday.

Statement from Debbie Sell

As I no longer work for the EKF I thought I'd write to you. I did wonder whether I should lower myself but thought it only fair that you now got your response! Its a shame you and the authors didn't check to ask me first and felt you had to hide behind false names and publish a load of crap etc only cowards hide

This statement is being sent as a parent defending her children and has no endorsement and/or nothing to do with the board of the EKF.

Debbie, I can see why you are angry. The EKA assault on the EKF's stance on statute21.9 was heavy handed and in part ill-informed. I agree also that to bring identified children into the argument is reprehensible. However the point that EKA are trying to make is a valid one. The EKF (former) management were a) guilty of double standards in their interpretation of 21.9 and b) in my opinion naive and mistaken in the way they attempted to enforce it. Under their interpretation, as I understand it, you were, strictly speaking, in breach of 21.9 in your attendance of the Malta Open, but that really points up the silliness of trying to impose non-fraternisation to the nth degree, and should be an indictment of the EKF management, not of you or other individual members.

Charity Karate Competition is 'Okay'

Dear Editor

The statement on the EKF web site doe's not state that EKF members cannot support  the Charity event.

Having spoken to Mark Drake the co-organiser, he assures me that only groups who support the EKF and WKF may attend.

Thus EKF members attending will not be in breech of breaking any rules or having sporting relations with none EKF members.

You make it sound as though everyone who doesn't wear a referee badge is prejudice towards them this is untrue they are a valued part of the EKF, my sons own instructor is a BKF referee and we fully support him. I have in no way been in doctrinated and do take offence to that remark, I make my own mind up on what I see and read. Remember, firstly I was a parent and saw how things were before, during and after the previous 2 governing bodies and they failed, a fact!
