What our members have to say about us

Frequently asked questions

null

What are the benefits of training in karate?

Karate is more than a self defence fighting system. It is a way of life. We are learning a martial art, to build strength in both mind and body, and yet we wish to never have to use the physical component of the art to defend ourselves. Consistent training in karate can develop strength of mind, body, spirit. By developing fighting skills you build confidence, inner security, awareness, respect for self and others. Karate training builds character, it teaches us life skills to help us to overcome challenges, solve problems, embrace opportunities, strive for excellence.

Do I need to be fit to start?

Absolutely not. Karate is a personal endeavour and every student is encouraged to participate at their own pace, with no expectation of fitness or ability.

Am I too old to start?

If you can walk onto the mats you can train in Martial Arts! We have had people start training well into their 50’s and even 60+!

Can my whole family have a class at the same time?

It depends on the ages of the kids, as typically we have kids in their age specific class groups in order to maximise the learning experience. When the opportunity for the family to train tougher presents itself we will certainly do our best to fit them all into the same class.

What are your class sizes?

Class sizes vary throughout each program and peak time. We abide by recommended instructor ratios which are as follows: kids classes ratio is 15:1 and for general classes it is usually 20:1.

How long will it take to reach Black Belt level?

It takes approx. 4-6 years to get black belt, depending on how many times you train a week and how committed you are to your improvement.

Do I have to start as a white belt if I have been training in another Goju Style?

What we’re doing is recognising the experience level that people who have already trained in a Goju based karate system and letting them train in their current grade belt until they are ready to be assessed and formally graded to the appropriate grade level in Goshukan Karate. There are many clubs within the same/similar styles or systems today, and just like when you are studying any tertiary education and gain credit points when moving from one course to another, the same can be said for transferring your karate journey from one Kai (school) to another. Speak to us about your situation. Every person is assessed on their own merits and training history.

What is the Australasian Federation of Traditional Karate & Kobudo (AFTK)?

The purpose of the Australasian Federation of Traditional Karate and Kobudo (AFTK) is to promote traditional karate and kobudo throughout Australasia. The AFTK focuses on ethics, technical seminars, workshops and all that is necessary to promote the spread of karate and kobudo in Australasia and to promote friendly beneficial relations between AFTK members. Goshukan Karate Academy is proud to be a member of the AFTK.

What is the Japan Karate Federation?

The Japan Karate-do Federation was established in 1964 to organize and oversee all styles of traditional Japanese Karate. This organisation is part of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (文部科学省 Monbu-kagaku-shō). It is led by a member of Cabinet who is selected by Japan’s Prime Minister.The vast majority of traditional Goju Ryu organisations are members of the JKF Goju Kai. This organisation seeks to preserve and perpetuate the style of karate that was developed in Okinawa, Japan by Mr. Chojun Miyagi. Goshukan Karate Academy is a member Seiwakai Goju Ryu and therefore a member of the Japan Karate Federation.
