YOUNG GRASSHOPPERS (3 – 4 years old)
Our young grasshopper programs are specifically designed for children aged 3-4 and incorporate basic karate skills with fun activities designed to improve your child’s co-ordination, strength, flexibility and confidence. The most popular part of this class with parents is the strong emphasis on stranger danger principles and effective self defence against larger opponents.

PEE-WEES (5-12 years old)
Pee-wee classes are for those children aged 5-12. Fun, effective and energetic is the best way to describe these classes. Fully qualified and screened instructors will help you to give your child a head start in life by giving them effective self-defence skills, self-confidence and respect. They will have a smile on their face the entire time while we help them set realistic goals and achieve them.

TEENS
Our clubs recognise that our teens go through big changes and at different times. We have special programs to accommodate every individual. Our Junior (12-14 years) program allows students to build their skills and confidence as they grow and eventually transfer to our Cadet (15-17 years) program, where they are tested on all aspects of the style. Effective traditional Karate classes in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all fitness and levels.

WOMENS KARATE
Unlike most martial arts clubs, our Australian organisation has a high ratio of female to male karate practitioners. Encouraged just as much as their male counterparts, Women all over Australia are achieving high level status in Karate and inspiring others to do the same.

ADULTS
Our adult or Senior program is for those over 18 years of age. All aspects including traditional strength training are incorporated. Whether you want to lose weight, feel fit or learn potentially life saving skills, our classes offer Karate for everyone. Fully qualified and Internationally recognised instructors will personally guide you on your martial arts journey, regardless of your experience.

FAMILIES
Our family or all grades classes give members of all ages the opportunity to participate in a class all together. Members ages 5 and up can participate. If you are looking for a positive activity for you and your children to participate in, look no further.
