About Us

Be the Best you Can Be! That is our motto. Karate is a journey of optimal health and well-being in everything that we do. In our physical training, our mental discipline, and our attitude to life in general. We teach this through traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu karate and our 30 minute specially tailored exercise classes for the busy teenager/adult who wants to GET FIT FAST. We have Kardio Power which consists of punching and kicking pads for a fast, effective workout. We also have Strengthen&Tone a more gentle body toning class where you use your own body weight and breathing. Some people do both, others target just one. Either way they are easy steps to a fitter, healthier, happier you!

Come along to a free class and take that first step.


Our traditional classes are at the Brooklyn Community Centre hall, St Pat's parish centre in Kilbirnie and WEEKEND KIDDIE KARATE CLASS on SUNDAYS 2.30pm - 3.15pm at Island Bay Community Centre hall.

We also run 'Fighting Fit Self Defence' courses and workshops:
