About Leeds Karate Academy

The purpose is to support club members in high level karate pursuits. In particular, we are aiming to raise funds to support our athletes that compete at International level as part of the England elite squad. The cost of sending competitors to overseas tournaments can be high and to ease the burden on the families of competitors we help by providing a proportion of the funds. The competitors themselves gain enormously from attending international events. The juniors not only gain valuable expertise from competing against the best in the world, they learn to be part of a team, mature as young adults, and gain an insight into other countries and cultures, often making friends with athletes from other nations. In addition, the enthusiasm they return with not only adds to their own training motivation but provides inspiration to other club members. Last year the LKA sent 7 competitors to International tournaments and they returned with 15 medals (including 3 gold’s) between them. In addition, at the Harrogate District Sports Awards, 3 of our juniors have received special awards for volunteer work, and they were awarded the best junior and senior team. In the Harrogate Centenary Awards 3 of our junior males were awarded prizes for their outstanding contribution to their sport for 2011; all represent perfect role models and mentors for the more junior members of the club. The philosophy of the LKA aligns to the major principles embodied in the national body for sport (Sport England). Sport England’s priorities are, grow, sustain, excel. The LKA membership includes over 350 people, participation is encouraged at all levels of ability and all ages, all members are encouraged to set personal goals and talented individuals are encouraged to excel. We currently have 27 LKA members on the England squad. Please consider supporting our club, every penny raised goes to supporting our talented competitors who act as role models for youth in our area.

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
