Beginners Classes 

If you have never practiced karate before, we offer an introductory 2-day beginners course, where you will learn the fundamentals of karate and ease your way into training. 

During these sessions we will determine the best method to teach you, as each person has different ways of learning. This is where our knowledge and experience from our training, teaching and coaching become invaluable.

The Japan Experience 


We have direct lineage with our Sister Dojo in Japan through Maruo Sensei, Fumiko Sensei & Fumiyuki Sensei, which makes your experience all the more profound.

You will be learning authentic Japanese karate that respects the traditions, language & culture of Japan. 

Our training is designed with the individual as well as the four seasons in mind. Spring (Haru 春), Summer (Natsu 夏), Autumn (Aki 秋), and Winter (Fuyu 冬) are celebrated in Japan.

You'll experience a smattering of Japanese in the class to remind us that our club is steeped in tradition from Japan. 

We hold fantastic social events in Bellingen with Japanese food.

And, you may even be able to come along on our trips to Japan and train in Tokyo and Kyushu.
