Karate is now an exciting Olympic sport and ‘Squad Training Sessions’ as they are otherwise known, are predominately aimed at those members looking to partake in competitions.

All of our squad trainings are conducted by Sensei Paul, who over the years has not only coached students to Open, Regional, English, British, European and World Championships but who has also won all of these titles himself as a competitor.

Squad training, just like most competitions are accessible to anyone willing to participate. However, the attendance of major championships is through selection only and earned by consistent attendance, endeavour and performance.

Members competing and training regularly at the Kiryoku Dojo also have access to Karate Sport England national training sessions and the opportunity of selection for their county.

Anyone interested in taking part in competition can email the squad coach via
