For athletes under 18 years only the legal guardian or parent is to complete the online form and give permission to attend. Please note if a person does not attend a EKF Kumite or Kata session there will be no Refund/Credit note.  A credit note will only be issued if the EKF cancel the session.

Only athletes with a valid EKF licence can register. If an athlete is selecting they must be in possession of a full British Passport and reside in England. If you have represented another country or represented one of the home nations then WKF rules apply.

Any athlete that goes to University that is living away from home will change regions to participate in that region. So if living in London but attending Newcastle University and living in Newcastle, the athlete will change for Southern (SE) region to Northern region.

Please note these are the following areas that will now come under the southern region that has been split in to two areas South East and South West.
