Mental strength for life

Australian Goju Kai Karate offers Karate lessons and martial arts classes for all ages, at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. We have Karate lessons throughout Brisbane for children as young as 4 years, adults and seniors. Families can also train together.

Children who participate in the Karate lessons learn crucial life skills, we develop more confidence, enhance manners, courtesy and positive behaviour.

They will learn how to become more focused, calm and Self Defence capable, as well as keeping them active and healthy at school, home and in their future.

Strength - Respect - AGKK Martial Arts

Our adult Karate lessons and martial art classes are aimed at increasing confidence, flexibility, co-ordination, Self Defence, strength, stamina and improved general fitness.

AGKK Karate is a wonderful way for adults to get fit with the positive engagement of mind and body. Training will improve our mental, physical and emotional health. Students can work at their own pace, which is great for those who haven’t exercised in some time.

Our Karate classes and martial arts lessons ensure that everyone can get the most out of each class, and train at a level that is enjoyable, safe, interesting, no matter their age or fitness level.

Improving confidence, fitness, focus, mindset training in an environment that is constantly positive with like minded people is a wonderful experience.
