Federation of English Karate Organisations International A Governing Body for all UK Martial Artists

“Where freedom of choice matters”


The squad trains on a regular basis and is open to FEKO International members, aged 7+.   The squad caters for all categories ranging from children, mini cadets, cadets, juniors, youths, seniors & veterans who are ready for advanced competition training.  We do ask however that your Association approves your attendance. The training costs are £10 per session.

The squad is managed by Dr Josh Johnson.


FEKO enters many UK and International competitions. Over the last 16 years FEKO have entered the squad into numerous World & European events in the World Karate Confederation (WKC) World Championships in Germany, Scotland, St Petersburg Russia, Serbia and Italy; European Championships for the World Union of Karate Organizations (WUKO) in Manchester &Italy. World and European Championships for World Union of Karate Do Federations (WUKF) in Odessa, Portugal, Scotland, Sheffield, Italy, Romania and Belgium.

FEKO is preparing to offer squad training again shortly. In the absence of this provision currently the code of conduct for anyone representing FEKO at International events has been slightly revised. Anyone wishing to represent FEKO at WUKF World and European Championships must have competed successfully in one or more of our recognised competitions over the previous 18 months offered by our colleagues in the AMA or the KSE or the KUGB.   Failing that the individual karateka must have evidence of success in other quality competitions over the past 18 months.


If an individual can meet that criteria then FEKO will be involved in the necessary administrative arrangements such as booking hotels and transport if required. This does not preclude the individual karateka making their own arrangements.  However, because FEKO is the member of WUKF and not the karateka’s association, FEKO is required to complete the registration process on the individual’s behalf.

As you know FEKO was one of the first members of the WUKF.  To be selected to represent FEKO is viewed as a great honour and FEKO National Squad training is the place to get noticed.
