TKF Karate - Recent squad success and medal tally

TKF Squad is a tailor made class for the sole purpose of developing the competition side of karate.

Competitive karate is broken down into two parts. The first being Kata, which are sequences of blocks and strikes that are performed to a predetermined timing.

The second being Kumite, a bout between two competitors who are allowed to use an array of karate attacks with differing levels of contact based on the age of the competitors.

In TKF Squad, students will learn the rules of competitive Kata and Kumite. As well as the tools to be successful in a competition. Perhaps more importantly students will learn how to show respect and correct sportsmanship to fellow competitors, squad members and officials.

Starting from a friendly and low level of the TKF club competitions, student can grow in confidence and ability all the way to become national and international representatives of their club, organisation and country.
