Liverpool Karate Academy is a group of committed and dedicated karate-ka with dreams of reaching the highest possible level in sport karate. Our training is specific so that we can perform at our peak when it matters. Our Squad Moto is “Results are just a side effect of our excellence” as our goals are performance related and results naturally come as a side effect of achieving these. This also takes the pressure off the athlete’s which will actually see higher performance levels (less stress, etc.) and in turn optimizes performance and thus the chance of results. You will have access to the CIKA England Squad and ultimately the EKF Regional and National Teams. It is through the EKF National Squad that the major goals of becoming European, World and Olympic Champion are possible.
The majority of our current team also competes for the CIKA England squad and 5 of those members have gone on to be selected for the EKF Northern Regional Kumite Squad and 1 of our students has also been selected for the EKF Youth Kata Squad. Our chief instructor trains with the EKF National Squad and is working hard to be selected for the A’ Squad to fight for England at a major European or World Championships.
We compete on the EKF circuit and attended many competitions each year giving our athletes lots of ring time to develop their game. We train hard but being able to transfer all the hard work done in the dojo over to the ring when under pressure is the mark of a true champion.
We believe greatly in the power of fun, positive sporting experiences and how they can influence young, maturing athletes especially. With the high level of athletic development, sportsmanship and teamwork involved in sports karate, on top of the values of karate itself, traditional values are honed (discipline, respect, confidence, concentration, health, etc.) as well as encouraging positive character development, healthy competitiveness and the many other benefits of sporting excellence.
