The fundamental aim of the SKGB Active Schools Network is to offer all children and young Our key outcomes:
people the opportunities and motivation to adopt active, healthy lifestyles, now and into adulthood by introducing them into Karate.
SKGB coaches are responsible for developing and supporting the infrastructure for Karate within the Active Schools programme and wider community. They do this by recruiting, supporting and sustaining a network of coaches and clubs, who in turn deliver Karate sessions during and after school and in the wider community.
