Team Forza

Team Forza is a new section of Forza Karate Club that specialises in Karate Competition.

Our team of Instructors have lots of experience in the Sport Karate field, from coaching grassroots (Beginners) to World class level.

Our team Kumite squad will focus on the element of competition fighting whilst our team kata squad will focus on the pattern of karate moves fighting an imaginary opponent.

Being on the squad will give the individual a more in depth knowledge to learn the skills of game (competition karate) and have opportunity to be put forwards to represent our association, regional or national team (via selection) as many of our the coaches students have done as seen in our Hall of Fame.
