The BKA was founded in 1964 and since that time it as maintained its place as a true Multi – Style association. Three key points make the BKA a popular choice for instructors of all styles; the absence of an overall chief instructor, whilst being able to offer high ranking ‘Senior Instructors’ in every style for guidance and help; ‘No’ bias toward any one particular style and the freedom of autonomy with the backup and help of the BKA if needed.
