SKE Karate Championships

A larger venue was needed for this years championships with a record number of entries and even more Judges, Referees, Timekeepers and Scorekeepers.

The event could have easily been held over a whole weekend but because we streamlined the day considerably, we started early on Saturday morning and finished Saturday evening.

Thank you to all the many helpers on the day who gave their time and helped to make the day our best ever.

The ‘Harlow Star’ was ahead of the game with a reporter and a photographer in attendance on the day.

‘The One Show’ BBC TV

Watch John Sergeant, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, SKE and the ‘Karate Kids’ family on BBC TV ‘The One Show.’
Filmed at one of our Waltham Abbey Dojos we all enjoyed our time with John Sergeant and the film crew.
The children were so very excited and enthusiastic, and at the end of the filming John kindly presented our pair of twins Thomas and Benjamin, with surprise birthday presents as it was their birthday on the day of the filming.
