July 1983

A well establised karate school since 1983 offering authentic Japanese karate to all members of the community from busy adults to active kids. Karate, self defence and fitness taught within a traditional format but using modern educational tools proven and tested. We lead the field in educational karate!

Children's classes are well structured to ensure well disciplined children learning within a fun and enjoyable environment with all coaches qualified to ensure that the child progresses to black belt and beyond. Children with high functioning autism also progress very well within our schools.
