"Become a Member of Australian Goju Kai Karate, Club AGKK!"

Traditional Authentic Goju Karate training offers many benefits as you too can soon discover.

AGKK provides flexible karate training programs to cater for different student's individual requirements at various levels of fitness and competency.

You are entitled to one free lesson and prices are usually discussed in person. Before we discuss pricing it is more important to see if our club is a correct fit for your child and or yourself. If you would like to join our club after your free lesson, then all pricing is discussed in person with Sharon who handles the class fees. The cost of training has a scaled system where we have three options Casual, monthly card, and a very affordable option to pay for an economy term card.

We are a community orientated club for example we provide all students a complementary trophy at the end of the year.

Not all clubs are the same. AGKK is a traditional Japanese Karate club, whose unique cultural heritage and authentic techniques stem directly from the Japanese masters.

I have over 35 years of experience and am Japanese graded and trained.

I realized that if a sensei becomes isolated from high quality instruction; sadly as many instructors do become isolated, then this isolation has no benefit for the teacher and his students in their martial arts development. That is the reason why AGKK became an active member of Gojuryu Karatedo Seiwakai International and the Japanese Karate Federation Goju Kai - our club offers direct access to the very highest level of Goju instruction from Japan. Yourself and/or child/children/friend/s are most welcome to attend the Goju Kai Karate classes.

At AGKK we are dedicated to providing our participants/students with high-quality martial arts/self defence training in a friendly proactive atmosphere. Training will address the theory of self defence, preventative strategies and physical self defence techniques. You will be able to support yourself with basic self defence strategies, techniques and the skills to defuse a situation. We strengthen the confidence of students. We nurture an authentic understanding of the effectiveness and biomechanics function of movement and practical applications of traditional karate.

Families can also train together at any of the classes enhancing respect, fun, discipline and self defence.

We are a Black Belt Leadership School where we can provide students opportunities to develop leadership skills and possibly enable a student to one day advance to become a Sensei.

I recommend training twice per week this will cultivate an improvement in all areas including strengthening confidence.

Through diligent training and perseverance, the practitioner of Karate can develop a gentler, calmer nature, whilst developing a more focused approach to daily living. The training develops a harmonious balance between the mind and body. All of AGKK's instructors are graded by a panel including Japanese trained masters. All of our instructors are BLUE CARD checked. Maybe you already practice karate, but have you ever asked your instructor what their level of experience is, how long they've trained, how long they've taught, or even how qualified they are? Are they certified by a genuinely recognized source?

I hope that by choosing to train with Australian Goju Kai Karate, you have made an excellent decision, based on quality teaching ability and a proven depth of knowledge and experience.

I hope you enjoy training with myself, my assistant instructors, and your fellow students at Australian Goju Kai Karate.

I am looking forward in helping you on your respectful Karate and Self discipline journey, reinforcing those core values such as respect self defence and positive focus.

All students are welcomed and taught in a helpful and friendly atmosphere. Our club is dedicated to providing an environment that encourages positive social interaction, and high levels of personal development & achievement. AGKK encourages it members to work together as a team in class. Student are relaxed and made to feel comfortable, enabling them the atmosphere to learn well. There are opportunities for students to ask questions regularly, as well as to work with a partner-which helps students in their training.

Our children's martial art classes are aimed at teaching respect, responsible, legal and safe behavior, the ability to avoid negative peer pressure and self defence. We instill confidence, honesty, and active positive participation in our junior members and stress the importance of education and how to be a leader, not a follower. Children who participate in my karate classes recognize the key values that we teach such as respect, courtesy, self discipline, confidence and apply these core values and good behaviour at home and at school. Many parents have commented to me saying traditional karate is the best gift they have given themselves and their child or children.

Our adult martial art classes are aimed at increasing confidence, flexibility, co-ordination, people skills, self defence, strength, stamina and improved general fitness.

AGKK is fully committed to teaching a high standard of traditional karate.

AGKK students honor this Japanese system of etiquette and is reflected in their WORDS, ACTIONS and whole CHARACTER our club is so much more than just punching and kicking.

This Japanese martial art emulates respect, courtesy and purpose in life. "I am so proud to pass this knowledge onto Women, Men and Children and to witness such a positive change, authentic karate makes to their lives.

It is very rewarding and inspirational to see many people who take up Goju Kai Karate renew themselves and families with a definite purpose in life.

Training at AGKK is a significant life changing proactive decision.

"In sports karate if you lose your speed you lose your karate. If trained in authentic traditional Goju Kai Karate-do you can continue after reaching middle age.

By application Goju Kai Karate dojo kumite gives you the edge, it is not dependent on your youth. If you train only in modern sports karate, once you are passed 30 years of age the essence of your karate is over."
