kyorugi committee

The development of Kyorugi is an important NZETKD strategy and the resources we provide through our Kyorugi squad program will improve the fundamental technique of our members throughout the country.

Athletes will register for a squad in one of four regions, Upper North (Auckland), Lower North (Palmerston North), Upper South (Christchurch) and Lower South (Invercargill).  The squad will then come together for a 4 hour training every 6 weeks and members will be provided with the latest up to date Kyorugi resources.

NZETKD will be working to implement the Kyorugi squads throughout the regions in 2019 and will keep you updated as to when these are up and running.
