No, our association is a member of the WDSDU. It's based in Korea, but it has members in alot of different countries
That's correct, Europe is a continent (just like North America includes the USA and Canada). The EU is the European Union, where each member country has representatives in order to create standards as well as promote peace, freedom, security, justice, etc... Anyway, while there are national (within the UK, which by the way is a union as well) and international (within the EU and world-wide) associations, organisations and union's; the martial arts are basically unregulated as a sport and or activity, it's basically the individual National Governing Bodies (NGBs) "regulates" them - there are however certain laws and acts that we have to follow, eg health & safety act, Child Protection Act 2004, Criminal Justice and immigration Act 2008 (section 76) in relation to self-defence, etc...
I like all the members of the United Kingdom, but you are a little funny.
In the U.S. the whole North, South was a thing, but nothing compared to Scots and English.
In 2006 I was in the southern Libyan desert on an oil rig with a bunch of Scot. We were drinking home made brew and listening to the radio.
England was play somebody in soccer, excuse me football. The funny thing was the Scots were laughing when the other team scored on England. They saw my surprise and said they rooted for anyone who played against England.
Yet, you better not say something against the U.K., because they will join ranks with the English against you.
When they got upset about my km joke. I knew Dvcochran step in it without trying when I read his post.
