We present the recent lattice QCD calculation of K-π I=3/2 and I=1/2 scattering lengths by the RBC-UKQCD collaboration. Our calculation is the first lattice calculation of these quantities performed using physical point ensembles [1]. This allows us to bypass the error due to chiral extrapolation, which in current calculations is the dominant source of systematic errors [2,3,4,5]. Preliminary results are presented and compared to those from earlier studies which were obtained at heavier pion masses and extrapolated to the physical point. References 1. T. Blum et al.
