[ UPDATE / COVID ] Latest news from Sport England

To ensure that the CKA operates within the official government guidelines, our Chief Instructor has directly contacted Sport England (the government body responsible for all sport in the England) to ensure the advice we are following from the English Karate Federation is compliant with current Covid19 regulations – here is their response:-


Dear David,

Thank you for your email.

Currently, the government advises that all contact aspects of martial arts are halted but you are able to continue with fitness/strength/exercise class activity in groups of more than 6 (as you describe with 3m distancing).

This is able to continue in all Tiers as long as it is organised by a club or qualified coach, and all social distancing measures are in place. Only the venue size will limit the number of people that you can accommodate.

Please see our FAQs for further guidance of what is and isn’t allowed.  It will also depend on which Tiers people are travelling between. 

With kind regards,
