KDS Committee

The KDS Committee represents all matters pertaining to the running and administrative side of the KDS. It works alongside the Technical Executive who re responsible for the development of the Karate aspects of the organisation.

If you want to get involved in the KDS in any of these roles or you have any skills you think we could use from accounting and admin to techincal such as video production or web design let us know. We are also always keen to find writers for this site and the newsletter we produce.

The Committee roles are:


Overall in charge of the running of the KDS from the administrative side. The chairman organises the committee and liaises with the Technical Executive.

In many ways a supportive role to the Chairman in terms of both relieving work load and in the decision making process. The VC also acts as a point of contact for KDS members when the Chairman is unavailable.


Manages the finances for the KDS, including all membership and course fees as well additional costs related to the running of the KDS.

The enquiries officer can deal with many of the hundreds of questions personally leaving Sensei to concentrate on the development of his karate. It is through this officer that Sensei has been reunited with many of his friends from the past.
