Prestigious Awards Presented - April 2018

Trevor White began martial arts training in 1975, later forming SEFKA in 1984. He has devoted his time, effort, knowledge and enthusiasm in the promotion and teaching of Karate to countless students. He is responsible for numerous Black Belts and Kumite champions plus been a true ambassador for SEFKA and martial arts generally. Trevor has led the association by example, which shows in the high quality senior instructors panel that he has developed over the years.

On the 8th April 2018, at the senior grading this dedication was recognised with the presentation of Trevor's 8th Dan Black Belt and the title of Grandmaster. A more deserving candidate for such award would be extremely hard to find, it is truly well deserved.

Senior Grading Requirements

SEFKA Chairman and Chief Instructor Trevor White has issued the following update, which takes immediate effect for senior Gradings (2nd Kyu to 3rd Dan)

All persons grading at a senior grading who are 18 years old and under will be required to perform all applicable kicks at head height.

Those over 18 will be expected to perform their kicks at the maximum height they can kick, but in all cases the height will be above belt height.

Exception to these requirements will be that the student is unable to perform the requirement due to injury, incapacity or other genuine reason. This must be highlighted to your senior instructor prior to the grading, so the panel are aware and can take it in to account.
