European Karate Championships 2021


The EKF Would like to extend our congratulations to the following athletes who have been selected to represent the English Karate Federation at the upcoming Senior European Championships in Croatia. As a result of the pandemic, we have only been able to give consideration to those athletes already on an Olympic pathway programme which has resulted in a reduced squad being selected. This may be a small squad but it is definitely a strong one!

Our National Coaches are unable to attend the event as a result of the restrictions imposed due to pandemic. We are pleased to announce that EKF Head Regional Coach Stennett Harvey will coach the squad. Stennett has previously coached all of the athletes including some of them to K1 podium finishes. BKF Olympic Qualifying Event coach Paul Newby will coach Jordan Thomas in line with Jordan’s funded programme.

The selected athletes are:

Natalie Williams   -61kg Kumite


Amelia Harvey      +68kg Kumite


Female Team        Carla, Natalie, Amelia
