On the weekend of 18th and 19th April 2015 the JKS England team were at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield for the annual English Karate Federation Championships.
The event is English Karate's premier event and sees competitors across the country gather to see who comes out on top under WKF rules.
This is the fourth year JKS England have entered a team at the event and each year progress has been made. 2015 proved to be no exception. The final medal tally was 3 Gold, 2 Silver and 7 Bronze medals and was the organisations best ever performance by far.
