Represent your club at national events & competitions.

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

Although squad sessions are accessible to everyone, being part of a ‘competition day squad’ is through selection and earned by consistent attendance, endeavour and performance. Consequently, everyone who represents Kiryoku more than twice is presented with their own personalised squad jacket.

All of our squad trainings are conducted by Sensei Paul, who over the years has produced numerous Open, Regional, English, British, European and World Karate champions. At events, the squad is coached and managed by Maureen Day, herself an experienced former World & European gold medallist.

Anyone wishing to be considered for selection can email the squad coach via
