The UKA, along with many other associations, attended a referee seminar hosted by KNI (Karate Northern Ireland) at Queens PEC today.
They were given a presentation on ‘Concussion in Sport’ by Raymond Shannon, a Senior Trainer in Rescue Emergency Care (First Aid Trainers NI). This focused on what to look out for and more importantly the aftercare of such an injury.
After this we were presented with a revision of the rules by Sensei Brian Campbell, in preparation for the up and coming KNI event being held on 15th November at the PEC.
For more information on this event, please contact your local UKA instructor, if you are not a member of KNI and wish to become one or wish to attend the biggest competition in Northern Ireland, please contact Terry Boyle (Chair of KNI) on
