Karate England Services
We are aware that our Member Associations will need essential services whilst the process of recognition by Sport England continues. The following services and information will therefore be provided either free or at minimal cost:
We believe that all Member Association Instructors should obtain an enhanced CRB check and these will be available through Karate Umbrella Registered Bodies such as KarateSport England, KUGB and SHIKON or through non-profit making Charitable Bodies which have been set up specifically for the purpose of providing CRB checks for unregistered sporting groups etc.
