Excellence Karate Academy-Kin Shin Kai

Since 1989 Excellence Karate Academy has been operating in Ivanhoe. To date we have instructed 1000+ students including 100+ to Black belt level.

Ethical, effective & traditional, we teach the Kin Shin Kai martial arts system. This system is based squarely on the Goju Kensha karate of the late great martial artist and researcher, Tadahiko Ohtsuka.

The system also integrates principles and skills from many other martial arts particularly including Tai Chi, the Koryu Uchinadi of Patrick McCarthy and the Bruneian Silat of Maul mornie,

Most importantly for today's world we incorporate a comprehensive system of Self Defense integrated directly and systematically into our curriculum.

This specifically highlights the importance of behavioral Self Defense as well as the need for physical techniques being suitable for the very young, the not so big and strong, and the not so young.

Lastly we are a 'family' style group rather than a big commercial dojo. Our goal is to focus on each individual student, helping them realise their own, unique maximum potential
