Private Lessons

Why Private Lessons?


AGKK provides high quality private lessons that are a great way to learn Karate at your own pace, or to enhance your current level of training. They are specifically designed to meet your needs and to help you maximize the benefits of training in Karate at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.


The benefits of private instruction are enormous. In private Lessons, the focus is entirely on YOU, and what you want to achieve from a single lesson or a series of lessons. You receive the one on one personal attention from Bernie Sensei that may not always be available in a group class setting. This provides you with the opportunity to correct techniques, learn faster and focus on your areas of weakness, turning them into strengths.

Bernie Sensei provides flexible Karate training progams/lessons to cater for different student's individual requirements, including time scheduling and various levels of fitness and competency. Private lessons and training are specific to your circumstances. Bernie Sensei has a range of teaching techniques allowing you to understand your movements comprehensively enhancing your learning and progress.


Sensei will work with you to nurture an authentic understanding of the effectiveness and biomechanical function of movement and practical applications of traditional karate. As a result of this biomechanical knowledge, Goju Kai Karate techniques are applied using very little natural strength, making it a self defence art suitable for people of all ages and sizes. These qualities, along with many others, combine to make Goju Ryu Karate a system of self-defence without equal.


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


Our children's private lessons 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.


Bernie Sensei reinforces to children the key values taught at home maintaining and proactively teaching respect, responsible, legal and safe behaviour, the ability to avoid negative peer pressure and self defence. We instil confidence, honesty, and active positive participation in our junior members and stress the importance of education.
