Paul Harris - South East Regional Head Coach

Paul Harris - South East Regional Head CoachPaul started Karate as a Junior in 1976 studying Wado Ryu, and after several years due to relocation changed styles to Shotokan and this proved to be better suited to him.

From the time Links Karate was started the club has gone from strength to strength from grass roots to producing many Black Belts and his successful EKF England Team Members, and their phenomenal successes and achievements.

On Joining EKKA Karate Association in 2002 which was a new beginning, under the Guidance of Sensei Mick Blackwell and Sensei Billy Brennan he became EKKA Association Head Coach, and Paul found his forte and put his drive, determination and dedication into coaching and producing the very best athletes.

He was very proud to be Head Coach of the EKF Midlands Region over the last several years where he and his team have had great success.  He has now been appointed Head Coach of the EKF South East Region from March 2020.

In 2015 Paul had the honour of being head of the EKF Delegation for the European Championships in Zurich.
