Why join a Kofukan Karate club?

Join a Karate club. Kofukan Karate is for everyone!

Traditional Karate

Kofukan clubs practice traditional Shito-ryu Karate-do directly descended from the Okinawan karate masters. Kofukan Karate Australia instructors have been trained and assessed by international Chief Instructor, Shihan Keiji Tomiyama (9th Dan).

Self Defence

Kofukan karate teaches effective and functional self defence for students of all ages. Self defence includes situational awareness, avoiding bullies, extracting yourself from non-consensual contact as well as self-preservation in the face of violence.
