      My daughter absolutely loves her Karate sessions at Goshukan Academy. Stacey, Nick and all the instructors are so nice and patient with the kids. I'm there sitting through each class and I can see how much they truly care about the … More students. They make it really fun too and the kids absolutely enjoy learning the skills.
      It's such a comfortable space, I even bring along my 1.5 year old son with me while we sit and wait. My daughter has benefited so much from going to Goshukan not only in her Karate but also in her focus skills, team work and respect for herself and others.
      I truly believe Goshukan Academy is one of a kind and I am so thankful to Stacey and Nick for the wonderful wonderful work they are doing.
      I definitely recommend this center for all kids as they cater for every single student individually making sure each student gains the best.

      My son, Rishi has been attending classes here for almost a year and the improvements I see in him in respect to his body posture, discipline and the way he actively engages with everyone in this tight knit community is actually very good. … More I appreciate master and his team for the way they interact with these kids, how they know everyone by their names and the mutual respect they have for this class is commendable. Thank you for doing what you do and we appreciate it very much 👏🏼

    Frequently asked questions


    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?

    Yes, we have a number of different options to get the whole family (Mum, Dad and kids of all ages) involved, without multiple trips. We have the option of a family class in which parents train in the same class as their kids and complete part of the class by themselves and the other part all together!

    What are your class sizes?

    Class sizes vary throughout each program and peak time. We abide by recommended instructor ratios which are as follows: Little Ninjas are an average 12:1 and teens and adults are 20 per class (usually with 2 instructors per class).

    How long will it take to reach Black Belt level?

    It takes approx. 4-5 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.
