Practical, traditional, self-defense, ground work, competitive karate
Close range, grappling and weapons techniques are integral to the SHINBOKU syllabus to form a martial art that is highly effective 'on the street'.
Kata forms the basis of the training, but knowledge of its meaning and an ability to apply techniques fluently are pre-requisites for progression.
BASICS - KIHON
Learning kicks, punches and all the basic techniques. And drilling them!
These are the foundation from which you build your skills and techniques.
FORMS - KATA
Choreographed patterns of movements.
These moves have practical, self defence applications.
APPLIED KARATE - BUNKAI
Everything we do is aimed at empowering you to use techniques when confronted, in a practical situation, if you have to defend yourself.
We focus on defending against common attacks like: hook punches, slaps, grabs, bear hugs, chokes, kicks, knife attacks, baseball bats.
SPARRING - KUMITE
Students refine their techniques with sparring within the dojo and competitively. Different forms of sparring encourages progress in percussive, grappling and throwing techniques.
