On Saturday the 25th of February we entered sixty-five students into the NKA Open Championships at Jarrow, Tyne and Wear.

There were over 300 attendees with an age range of 5 years to 61 years.

We won a total of 110 trophies;
  • 45 first place trophies (17 of which were for kumite)
  • 28 second place trophies and
  • 37 third place trophies.

It was almost embarrassing as we dominated the competition from start to finish, taking all the trophies in many sections.

Let's hope they invite us back again next year.

Ponds Forge Sheffield was the place to be on the weekend of 25th & 26th February 2102. The AMA International Karate Championships was in town and back to it's best.

17 countries where being represented, 58 clubs/associations attended with over 450 competitors totalling over 800 individual events. The WUKF Chief referee Sever Cucu conducted a referee's seminar on the 24th February and the morning of the 25th February.

The competition started at 1pm,  with an opening ceremony led by Mark Drake the AMA Chief referee. 83 categories where contested over the two days with Kata only on the Saturday and all Kumite on the Sunday. 6 areas where used over the two days and never stopped. over 40 officials where used by both the Chief referee's with promotions to WUKF officials. Mark Green from Shikon was upgraded to WUKF Continental referee, Peter Allen to WUKF Continental Kata Referee and Kumite Judge and Mark Drake to WUKF Continental Referee.

Some fantastic performances in the Kata and Kumite by past masters in the Veterans categories, also current World and European champions from WUKF where in attendance from the AMA, FEKO and KE, which incidentlly now form the 'New Governing Body for Karate in England'.

Many association champions also made up the array of talent on show, which made to an exiting competition in the steel city. The standard was excellent, the organizer Mr Peter Allen was asked, have you missed the EKF & WKF, he said, take a look around and see the happy faces, no restrictions, anyone can enter, karate ka from all federations enjoying a wonderful weekend together as it use to be before 2007.  Not at all, there's more on offer outside of the EKF & WKF.
