Letter from Winston Williams, EKF Performance Director

Dear Senior Squad Member,

Some of you will already know me and others will not. My name is Winston Williams and together with Greg Francis we are responsible for all squad and referees affairs as EKF Board Members in the position of Performance Directors.

I thought it would be a good idea to meet with you all as a group, therefore the most appropriate time would be immediately following the EKF selections on 8th July 2018 for the World Karate Championships. The purpose of the meeting is to introduce myself and briefly share our early thoughts.

Look forward to meeting you then.

Best Wishes

Winston Williams
Performance Director

53rd EKF Senior Championships, Novi Sad, Serbia, May 10-13 2018

So far under the new kumite coaches the EKF squad have won 7 medals in 15 months that's more than half the kumite medals that were won in the previous 5.5 years. Under the Kata coaches the EKF has won 2 medals so far plus the Youth Kata medals 6 so things are looking good for the squads. There's 2 weeks to go until the Senior athletes take to the stage at the Senior Europeans in Novi Sad, fingers crossed that the medals continue to roll in. We have many talented athletes and a huge wealth of experience with our kata and kumite Coaches.

The competition starts on Wednesday 9th May.
