What Is Karate?


Karate is one of the most popular of all the Martial Arts, dating back to the Okinawan times where it was developed for the locals to defend themselves against the tyranny of mainland Japan. As they were banned from equipping themselves with traditional weaponry, the locals had to learn how to defend themselves using only their bare hands. Moving forward several decades karate was popularised and introduced to mainland Japan in a modernised as more holistic self defence system and as a way of life for personal empowerment and character growth.

Today karate is practiced by millions of people around the world. There are 4 main traditional styles - Goju Ryu, Shotokan, Shito Ryu, Wado Ryu. We are Goju Ryu and are members of the Japan Karate Federation (JKF) Goju Kai, as well as members of the Australian Karate Federation (AKF)

Why learn Karate?


The three main reasons people choose to learn karate are:

  • Learn Self Defence
  • Build Confidence
  • Improve Fitness

Yet there are many other values and benefits that go beyond the initial ones listed above. Karate is unlike anything else that you can do as you start by learning the movement and developing skills and then as you delve deeper into what it is all about you become fascinated with learning more and building and strengthening your mind and body.

Everyone starts their karate journey as an excited beginner and they quickly fall in love with the process of learning new skills, understanding oneself, building strength of mind, body and spirit.

    Since my daughter joined goshukan she has become a very confident happy young lady, she is only 4 and has been going a little over a year now so was quite young when she started but has loved every second of it! She absolutely loves sensei … More Emily and always enjoys the fun and serious sides of her classes! I can’t recommend goshukan enough especially the little ninja program as my daughter is a lot happier, focused and a lot more confident since joining! And what’s best at goshukan is everyone is treated like family, that’s why my daughter can’t wait for her lesson every week!

    My son has settled right down at school. We have gone from having detention for recess and lunch multiple times through the term to it being a distant memory. The only thing that has changed has been getting him involved in karate. An added … More bonus is that he loves being involved
