Every Thursday – Australian Goju Kai Karate – Mango Hill

Date: Every Thursday
Time: 6.15pm – 7.45pm
Place:Benedict’s College, 21 St Benedict’s Close, Mango Hill

To date we have students ranging from ages 3 to 80 years. We are like a family where we show mutual respect and good communication to all members of our Karate family. We are proud of our AGKK heritage. Australian Goju Kai Karate is an authentic Japanese Karate Club, whose unique cultural traditions and authentic techniques stem forth directly from the highly renowned Japanese Masters.

At Australian Goju Kai karate we pride ourselves on adhering to the authentic training curriculum, and practice philosophical ideals of respect, etiquette, honour, and striving for excellence through a combination of mental, physical, and spiritual training. The true measure of any Martial Art lies in its ability to transcend all barriers. We nurture an authentic understanding of the effectiveness and biomechanics function of movement and practical applications of Goju karate.

All classes are conducted in a positive, friendly atmosphere of cooperation. All students are encouraged to support and help each other, ensuring an enjoyable and productive learning experience.
Goju Kai techniques are applied using very little natural strength. In this way, a person who is significantly lesser in strength, can defuse a much larger and stronger opponent. This quality, along with many others, combine to make Goju Kai Karate a system of self-defence without equal.
