Inclusive Activity Partnership & Courses

The EKF are delighted to be registered partners to the National Lottery and Sport England funded Inclusive Activity Programme (IAP).

This is something which we are incredibly proud to be part of and are one of the few martial arts governing bodies (and first karate governing body) to have signed up as registered partners. This fits strategically with our ambition to develop an English karate para-athlete squad – building upon our advertisement for a National Para Coach and the excellent work that Sensei Matt Handley has been doing already on behalf of the EKF.

IAP courses will help equip karate coaches with the skills to more effectively engage disabled people, and people with long-term health conditions during classes. It will provide a unique opportunity that will significantly improve the confidence and competence of coaches to deliver inclusive activity.

As registered partners the EKF will be rolling out 4 training sessions each year. When the government permits these courses to go ahead, details will follow shortly after.
