Regional Kumite Training Information


All EKF training/selection sessions are now via the new online forms which then take you through to the payment section. The choice is paypal/debit/credit card. Forms will not be received by the EKF until payment is made. This is the only way to now register and pay for sessions. You will receive a receipt of your payment and a copy of what you have submitted.

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.

To enter any EKF events or training sessions you must first seek permission from your association before you register and pay.

Disclaimer: Karate is a martial art and contact sport. People can and do get injured and we cannot accept responsibility for any such injury, loss or accident arising from your participation in our training, competitions or associated activities and ask that you are aware, agree and accept this by entering or giving permission to enter this event. We should also be notified, in writing, of any medical condition that may have relevance to their participation in karate. .

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.
