The 2017 JKS England Squad selections took place in Leeds on Sunday 8th January. In total, 3 Squads were selected. A Junior Kumite Squad, a Senior Kumite Squad and a Kata Squad.
Each selection took two hours and the result of this was that 23 Junior Kumite competitors, 20 Senior Kumite competitors and 35 Kata competitors were chosen in total to make up the JKS England squad for 2017.
2017 is another huge year with the JKS European Championships being held in Belgium in September of this year but there are many other national and international events to go at and to keep them all motivated, including many senior members of the squad competing in WKF Premier league events.
Matt Price, National Head Coach commented " Congratulations to those that were selected to be part of the JKS England 2017 squads. Overall an excellent standard! If you were not successful work hard and try again! For those that were selected, now the hard work starts!"
