Welcome to the Northern Ireland Karate Board (NIKB) web site. At present or site and social media platforms are going through a major upgrade and refresh. We apoligise for any inconvience caused.
At this moment the major thing that is happenen is a review of the anti-doping policies and practises within all the four home nations. It is recommended that all members of the NIKB should familarise themselves with the anti-doping polices and especially all our coaches.
Clicking on the link below will bring you to the latest documentaion in relation to anti-doping.
Governing bodies are an essential element of sport. A National Governing Body (NGB) is an organisation that governs and administers a sport on a national basis, whether that is for the whole of the United Kingdom (i.e. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales), for Great Britain (i.e. England, Scotland and Wales) or for one of the Home Countries individually. An NGB operating in Northern Ireland may operate on an All-Ireland or Ulster Provincial basis. Traditionally NGBs are viewed as the custodians and guardians of their sport.

The Northern Ireland Karate Board (NIKB) maintain a list of Federations and Association and Clubs that are members of the governing body. The advantage of this is the pathway to the Olympics is open to any student that has the potential to meet the selection criteria. Not only that the eligibilty for access to grants has inproved as many local authorities have made membership of the NGB as recognised by SportNI a basic requirement.
Most important students can access the highest quality competitons through out the world.
