The second free JKS England Referee, Judge and Table Recorder Course was held at Walsall Karate Dojo on Saturday 26th April 2014. The course followed on from the first one in February with the objective of developing a team of highly qualified and experienced
tournament officials within our organisation. Once again the course was superbly led by Geoff Dixon Sensei.
Unlike the first course of the year, which was more theoretical, this one saw participants in a more practical environment with most of the time spent on the tatami.
The course also culminated in some participants taking JKS England exams both theoretical and practical. Congratulations to the following:
