WHAT WE OFFER
We are more than just karate
While karate is a major focus we offer a broad range of martial arts for our Members. We pride ourselves on giving our Members an opportunity to learn a broad range of self defence skills. For those who wish the opportunity to progress beyond just basic self defence skills and develop a more indepth knowledge in a broad range of traditional martial arts .
Goju Ryu Karate
Goju Ryu means Hard Soft Style in Japanese. It is one of the original karate styles developed at the home of karate - Okinawa, Japan by Chojun Miyagi. Like all traditional karate styles it was developed over long period of time by warriors in battle.
Since the start of the 1900's karate has continued to evolve to suit modern society and become not just an effective means of self defence but also a great whole body exercise and more recently adapted into a competitive sport.
This is a fun activity for our members.
In sport karate there are two types of events Kata (set of specific movements) and Kumite (sparring).
Kata is judged like a dance or gymnastic performance, whereas in Kumite competitors try to score points against an opponent by executing karate techniques to specifc scoring areas without injuring the opponent. This is a safe activity for young kids.
Kobudo means old or ancient in Japanese. Okinawan Kobudo like all old weapons martial arts were developed by warriors on the battlefield. Our Kobudo, Ufuchiku style comes from Kiichi Nakamoto Soke, Hanshi 10 Dan and those before him.
We train to broaden our self defence abilities for general interest and exercise. In today's environment it is not unusual to be attacked by a weapon (knofe or stick), s learning how to use and defend against weapons is prudent. It is also great fun.
Jujitsu is the traditional unarmed combat system of the Japanese samuari that has been practiced since the 16th Century. It was developed because striking a heavily armored opponent was not effective. Jujitsu focuses on throws, locks, holds and grappling. Jujitsu is the traditional martial art that Judo, Aikido, and Brazilian Jujitsu all originated from and which is popularised in UFC and MMA.
We train in Aikijujitsu to broaden our self defence abilities to broaden our knowledge, abilities and to compliment our Goju Ryu Karate training.
