Traditional Karate Federation (TKF) is the England name for the group incorporating Seiwakai, Goshukan, Shuseikan and other affiliated members.
The National Championships is open to any student from any dojo affiliated to the TKF.
The tournament follows the rules and format of the JKF Goju Kai World Championships. We are using these competitions as a basis to create a formal Great Britain squad to represent our country at international level; especially in Japan.
The rules for international entrants are restricted to allowing up to 2 players to enter any single division from any country. We mirror the 39 divisions used at the Japan Karate Federation competition and invite the gold and silver medallists from each division to be provisionally selected for the Great Britain squad. Following the National Championships there will be a further selection day for members who want to try again for one of the two places available. This process will give our Association time and opportunity to organise training in the build up to the 2012 JKF Goju Kai World Championships, which will be held in Chiba; Tokyo, Japan.
Start Time: 08:00
