HP Working Party

The High Performance Working Party has been put together to spearhead a review of the Karate NZ High Performance implementation. There are two prime deliverables for this committee.

The High Performance Strategic Plan

The High Performance Operational Plan

The strategic plan provides a high level overview of our targets, and our intented pathways to achieve the targets. It is a requirement of High Performance Sport NZ (HPSNZ) and will meet the guidelines that they have set.

The operational plan goes into further detail and will recommend changes to the Karate NZ structure and process both at a National and Regional level. This will be a living document providing transparency and guidance to competitors, coaches, referees and selectors...etc.


Feedback and ideas on all aspects of High Performance within Karate NZ are more than welcome. Please do so on the Contact Form.
