29th September 2007

Dear Members.

We have been advised that participating in the BKF Championships this year could be interpreted as a contravention of the WKF statutes. This situation is unique in world karate as the BKF is the official body of all four nations and for one nation to fall foul of the WKF could lead to a blanket ban on us all.  The BKF has no option but to act on this advice from the WKF, in view of the fact that in 2006 all four nations were within 48 hours of expulsion from the WKF.

It has therefore been decided, with deep regret, and in agreement with all four nation representatives and our tournament organiser, that the Championships be cancelled this year

We have, up until the last possible moment, tried to avert this situation, but the risks are too high.  All of us are deeply saddened by this turn of events.

I personally apologise to all competitors, officials, coaches, families and Elite Promotion and British karate as a whole for all the disruption and upset caused.                                                                                                                                


Terry Connell BKF President
