Our People – Poneke Dojo Committee

Poneke Kyokushin Karate Dojo Inc. is a society incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act.  Details are publicly available on www.societies.govt.nz.

The club is managed by a committee of volunteers including the Dojo Head and three elected member representatives.  This core group has the freedom to appoint additional committee members as required to ensure the committee has the skills and experience needed to keep the club humming.

The committee is supported by a whole network of volunteers who each play an important role in the ongoing operations of the club.  The committee is always very happy to hear from any member or parent who is keen to volunteer a little time or expertise.  Many hands make light work!
