What is a UKSKO licence?

A UKSKO Licence gives you insurance in case of an accident when training, grading or entering competitions. It also registers you with the UKSKO (United Kingdom Seiki-Juku Karate Organisation) and the karate governing body EKF (English Karate Federation). Without a valid UKSKO licence you will NOT be insured and your grade will NOT be nationally or internationally recognised. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain a valid UKSKO licence.

All students must present a valid UKSKO licence before gradings. If you do not hold or are unable to present a valid UKSKO licence then you will not be allowed to grade. Licences are valid for one year and must be renewed each year.

How do I purchase a licence?

UKSKO licences can now be purchased online at:
