We are Kalgoorlie's family-owned and family-orientated martial arts academy focusing on practical, realistic and self-defence based applications.
We teach traditional Shorin-ryu (Matsubayashi-ryu), with a lineage traceable to Okinawa, Japan, the birthplace of karate. Our dojo offers classes for children, teens, adults and families in an inclusive non-competitive environment.
We teach traditional Okinawan Shorin-ryu (Matsubayashi-ryu) Karatedo, which was founded in Okinawa, Japan (the birthplace of karate) in 1947 by Osensei Shoshin Nagamine. Our dojo is a member of the Matsubayashi-ryu Karate Association of Australia and is a part of a worldwide network of dojo.
Our kids classes focus on developing self-defence, discipline, coordination, focus, and courtesy through the principles of traditional karate.
Sensei Matt and Sensei Susan both have over 20 years' experience in karate, having trained not only in traditional karate but other martial arts, too. Sensei Matt is known for bringing his vast experience together, coupled with his passion for teaching and developing others, to deliver fantastic classes. Sensei Susan adds extraordinary value to classes as a qualified early childhood educator and brings these professional skills to the dojo when teaching both adults and children.
