A new Karate Club – why the change?

Karate is my passion and my craft. It always has been and always will be.

At 12 years of age I was taken to my first ever karate class at the local Shotokan Karate Club. I fell in love with karate – the dojo etiquette, the respect and courtesy, the mystery of becoming a black belt ‘master’.

I have spent the last 35 years developing my skills and growing as a person with karate as a foundation of everything that I have done and achieved.

I want to continue to grow and I need to feel confident that the true art of Karate and its amazing benefits are being explored and shared consistently and accurately with every individual student. My realisation is that the only way I can really achieve this is to take full responsibility for the training, culture, and structure.

My promise is excellence in Karate – develop what works – discard what doesn’t. I unashamedly embrace the essence of building strong individuals – mind body and spirit. To some this may be a cliché, for me it’s everything.

For me this is Next Level Karate. The focus of our club is to develop a training curriculum that follows the teachings of traditional karate while at the same time embracing modern training concepts and ideology that will push the boundaries of personal endeavour and constant improvement in all students. We aim to train with more awareness of what we do, how we do it, and most importantly, why we are doing it. Every training drill must be principle based and purpose driven. It has to have meaning, and we must stay aware to what the meaning is so that we can remain inspired to pursue excellence in our training and development of skill and mind set.

Our ‘Train the way you fight, fight the way you train’ concept means we teach Karate that works, no wasted effort, no irrelevant techniques. The physical training will make you strong in mind and body, the learned fighting skill will make you effective, confident and humble and have a powerful, positive, calming effect on your entire life.

Our website is the showroom for the club, and the blog will be the communication tool to share the progressive thread of info that will help to develop our mind and body by sharing training ideals, tips for skill development, and everything else that will be useful and benefiting to your karate and personal development journey.

I invite you to subscribe to the blog and join the community of passionate karate-ka.

    Shivansh has been attending the academy for a few years now, started with the junior program and is currently doing the senior kids program and it is amazing to see his growth over this period. Shihan & his team are doing a fantastic … More job with the kids, teaching them techniques, focus & discipline at the same time making it fun for them.

    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 👏🏼

    Geoffrey was very weak and I thought he needs to improve his stamina but I didn't know what was the best way to do. As I was browsing around online, I came across Goshukan karate academy, Seven hills. With a lot of doubts I called … More them and asked as if they would accept my 6 years old playful son and put him under 8 year classes. Without any hesitant , they accepted him into their academy . Well, today after a year with them , I am proud to say that I can see a lot of improvements in him , physically and mentally . He is a good listener now. His stamina level has improved in which it helps him to do well in soccer . He is stronger and behaving well these days. I would recommend this academy to anyone who would like to have their kids grow well physically or mentally.

    Our whole family with kids has been attending Goshukan Karate Academy in Seven Hills for over a year and it has been such a positive experience for all of us.
    One of the standout features of the club is its well-structured training program.
    … More This structure not only provides a clear path for skill development but also ensures that students, including our kids, can progress at their own pace while mastering the fundamentals of karate. The classes are scheduled throughout the week. This availability makes it convenient for busy families like ours to find suitable training times. Our children have gained confidence, improved their standing and walking stance, and developed better behaviour through their karate training. These life skills are invaluable and will serve them well in various aspects of their lives. As a parent, witnessing such positive changes in our kids is incredibly rewarding, and it's a testament to the effectiveness of the training provided by the academy.
    Being able to train together as a family not only promotes physical fitness in our family but also strengthens the family bond. In today's fast-paced world, finding quality family time can be a challenge.
    Lastly, it's worth noting the courteous and supportive nature of the club's trainers and administrative staff.

Thank you Stacy and team for all you have done .
