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 training as a good foundation of fitness and self defence skills, sport karate tournament training, and our Fighting Fit self defence workshops and courses which are available as community classes and corporate workshops for staff.

We also have special 30-minute GET FIT FAST Cardio & Core classes that are designed for busy people. A great option if you have leg injuries and want low-impact options for cardio fitness or a strength work to complement your fitness regime if you walk, swim or run during the week. 

Karate, Self Defence and Fitness classes at your doorstep!
We are community-based at Brooklyn Community Centre hall and
Vogelmorn hall. We even have weekend classes on Sunday afternoons
for you, if your weekdays are too full!
