About our school

As a family owned business, Sensei Steve and Sensei Mel started their school with one thing in mind – bringing the amazing benefits of karate to others. With over 45 years of experience between them, they have not only lived the benefits themselvesbut have seen what karate training has brought to their two young children. Karate training develops a confidence and focus that aidesyoung children in all their relationships, particularly at school, where kids can be easily led or distracted during these critical learning years. In adults, it offers so much more than just fitness and weight loss! You are learning an artform that has been passed on for generations teaching Self defence, control and mastery over ones body and emotions. The study of karate truly is a lifelong passion for so many people, not just in this club but in clubs worldwide.

The sense of community at Canberra Karate Academy is what keeps students of all ages coming back week after week. Having many families of 3, 4 and 5 all training together and all enjoying the many benefits that karate brings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Martial Arts Programs

A specific component of our Mini Samurai program for preschoolers, Tough Tigers and Juniors programs is teaching respect, and when to use their self defense training and when NOT to use it! We also teach the difference between self defense towards another child and self defense when a ‘tricky’ adult is involved. We find that our students become more confident and stand up to bullies and know they can talk to their teachers, parents and karate instructors. They have more compassion and empathy through their karate training and the many lessons it teaches.

With the current COVID environment we recommend only 1 parent per child watching inside the venue but live stream all our kids classes to our private Facebook Members page so parents can watch outside the venue.

No, not at all! We find that people start at varying fitness levels. But, you will find that you do get fit by doing our karate classes as it truly is a full body workout. A fun workout that gets results!

Generally between 3.5 – 5 years, however, the journey to Black Belt is an individual one. Everyone progresses at a different pace. There is no judgement on students for how long it takes and no pressure. What we can tell you is that the journey is worthwhile.

The self defense skills you will develop can truly be life-saving. However, the other benefits of striving for Black Belt, like perseverance, self discipline, commitment lead to life-long improvement and success.

You will find that your instructors at Canberra Karate Academy are dedicated to helping you on your karate journey, whatever your personal goal may be.

We have a great trial offer to get you started in our karate classes. This offer is for ages 6 years and up, new members only.

Make sure you wear comfortable clothes you can do sport in. Be sure to bring a water bottle for drink breaks as our classes are a lot of fun but also a great workout. Most students are grinning from ear to ear by the end of class and we hope you will be too!

Not at all. In fact, many students starting in our adults karate classes would describe themselves like that before they started! So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be surprised at how much you improve. The key is repetition, which is why we recommend training at least twice per week but for quicker progress, train as much as you can!

You’ll find that our very experienced karate instructors are trained to keep their teaching specific for each level. So even the most uncoordinated person will develop skills and confidence! Come see for yourself!
