UEKF was formed in 2000 and teaches karate true to
its Okinawan / Japanese roots but developed
specifically to cater for the needs of our
preponderance of youth members, whilst fulfilling
the needs of a strong and active adult membership.
The motto is Bodaishin, meaning the
Awakening Mind. The Japanese characters are
shown to the right and embroidered on our gis. The
image is that of a banyan leaf, symbolising the
youth of our membership. The UEKF is a member of
EKGB, the English Karate Governing Body.
syllabus has been developed from the ground up, and
although will be familiar in style to anyone who
practices traditional karate, has been designed to
fit students' natural learning patterns and
psychology. An instructor training programme has
been devised in parallel with the syllabus, with
the result that we are confident that our
federation is at the forefront of modern karate
UEKF Chief Instructor Richard Bolton is a 5th dan black belt and an acredited national kata and kumite referee.
The UEKF teaches at Ursuline High School Sports Centre Karate Club and at schools in the London area.
