Sensei & Students from other dojo's and styles are also very welcome to come and train anytime.
The style we practice is Shito-Ryu Karate which was founded by Kenwa Mabuni. As a beginner this will be the core of your training and as you progress you will gain an understanding of other styles.
Shito-Ryu possesses the kata of both Goju and Shotokan and offers a good balance of 'linear and hard' with 'round and soft'. Therefore, the three styles are innately connected. In fact, Mabuni Sensei regularly got together with Funakoshi (Shotokan) and Miyagi (Goju) to work on concepts, techniques and kata. We honour this age-old tradition and so enjoy training with other styles and clubs and always welcome students from the many forms of martial arts that come into our dojo to train with other like-minded people.
We have a great support network with 8th Dans in Japan, United States and Australia who sit on our grading panels, run seminars and attend our camps.
