Opportunities for a student to one day advance to become a Sensei
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 if they so desire.
We train intelligently
The approach of working together in a positive safe environment is important.
We train intelligently developing confidence in children/kids, adults - women, men and families. In today's rapidly changing and busy society training in the Karate Dojo maintains clarity and the core values we all cherish we aim to cultivate and maintain throughout our lives.
Positive values that we aspire to maintain and live buy
It does not matter how stressful or extreme the world outside gets, once we step into the dojo in our white traditional uniforms and start training it brings back balance to our lives. The essential techniques that we teach of the mind and body reinforce the positive values that we aspire to maintain and live buy.
Exceptional traditional Karate Club - Rare to find in Australia
It is rare to find in Australia an exceptional traditional Karate Club - the etiquette and life philosophies we teach have been passed down the centuries from Okinawa and Japan. Our club Australian Goju Kai Karate and SHUSEIKAN Australia offers direct access to the very highest level of Goju instruction from Japan Seiwakai International and the Japanese Karate Federation Goju Kai.
We also assist each year in bringing out the best instructors from these countries into Australia so students in our Karate family are open to train with the best instructors in the world.
Legitimate Karate black belt - World Recognition in Japan and Australia
We provide opportunities for Japanese certificates of Karate Dan grades and black belt recognition and certification. Certificates are Australian Karate Federation (AKF) and World Karate Federation (WKF) approved once we send through the endorsement application to those bodies.
In our genuine karate club and in the eyes of experienced martial artists the value and prestige of our traditional curriculum, attached to the legitimate Karate black belt in our Karate family has remained unchanged.Aiming for and maintaining a valid black belt with Dan recognition symbolizes loyalty, honour, dedication, persistence, discipline, courage and being quietly confident, are still to this day inspirational qualities.
We have a very low turnover rate of black belts.
Becoming a qualified black belt in all aspects of your life
The qualities of becoming an accredited black belt and living the positive martial arts code of behaviour everyone is capable of irrespective of age, sex or physical condition.
It's represents the ability to fight through your own internal challenges- this positive mindset forges a discipline to commit to something and see it through. In life we all need to keep learning refining focusing on the positive which might mean obtaining your black belt.
Once this is done real learning will take place not only in Karate but also in life. Success is found in the journey not just the end result. Consistent time with steady dedication in training is important.
Becoming a black belt in all aspects of your life is far more rewarding than getting a black belt!
Goju Karate a way of life - improving lives
It has always been incredibly humbling and heart warming when students tell you how much Karate means to them and how it has improved their lives.
I feel that most people in our club or AGKK family possess a positive mindset, attitudes and are respectful, courteous and have wonderful behaviour. Meaningful participation of all members of our karate family has all helped to develop this positive culture. New students see and feel this way of life when they enter our AGKK atmosphere that is welcoming, friendly and also conducive for each to become a better person.
The core values we teach change lives of students forever.
At AGKK we educate, promote and enhance a positive way of thinking
In our club we educate, promote and enhance a positive way of thinking and help a student create and maintain constructive focus with confidence on fitness including weight loss and improving many other aspects of their lives.
As soon as a student bows into the dojo, the basic techniques practiced, the stances, kata, kumite, the positive focus on perfecting the small details, the customs, all develop essential life skills for students.
