The Chief Instructor for Australia is Branco Bratich, 8th Dan. Branco, who, with the assistance of Tony Smith, 6th Dan and his senior instructors, has built Yoseikan into an Australia wide organisation. Branco opened his first club at the Girrawheen Recreation Centre Perth in 1978.
Yoseikan-Ryu Karate has earned a reputation over the years for teaching a high standard of karate. In these times of sophisticated marketing it is easy to be duped into joining karate organisations which have instructors teaching with suspect qualifications.
It is important that you join a reputable karate club. The only way to guarantee an organisation's credentials is to make sure that the school you are joining is a registered member of the Australian Karate Federation. If they are not, save your money. To confirm any club's membership and the instructor's qualifications, phone the Australian Karate Federation in your state.
