The Senior team will be flying out to Tokyo, Japan on the 3rd November and have training sessions arranged at various dojos in Japan before the Championships themselves. The squad has been lucky enough to be sponsored by CyberBudo, Adidas (Avasports) and Chikara Ltd.

The Board of the EKF would like to wish the Senior Squad participating in the World Championships in Tokyo, Japan, the best of luck and good fortune. To be competing and attending these championships is a wonderful opportunity to show the world that England are back in business.

The Board would also like to say thank you to, Sensei Terry Wingrove and Cyberbudo for their generous sponsorship of the senior team without his help this would not have been possible. Also a big thank you to Chikara Ltd and AVA Sports for their equipment sponsorship of the team. Thanks, also goes to everyone behind the scenes working together to ensure this is a successful championships.

Once again good luck and best wishes to the squad.
