Shotokan Karate brings the Martial Art of Karate in reach of everyone, regardless of age or fitness levels. Every individual can learn & benefit from Karate training!
Our particular style of martial art is Karate, and Shotokan is the style or brand of karate we learn and practice. This is traditional Japanese karate which was introduced to Japan in about 1922 by the originator of the style, Gichin Funakoshi, who came from the island of Okinawa which is off mainland Japan. Our Head of Style in Australia is Sensei Jason Naylor 7th dan.
Our style is directly with the Japan Karate Association which is based in Tokyo. High ranking Japanese Instructors attend Australia each year to present learning seminars and conduct gradings where necessary. The focus of our style is based on the traditional teachings of karate and apart from being an effective form of self defence techniques, training also focuses on the move towards developing the character of the participant, in other words, the focus is not on the ability to be able to injure someone, but to develop us as persons, gaining self-confidence through our karate training
I have been practicing Shotokan styles for the past 15 years like GKR karate and JKA/wf, until I have a hall and time you are more than welcome to train with my senseis.
Times and address will be announced in a later date!!
