Kids Karate Program
Grasshoppers: 3-4 years old
Our Grasshopper program is specifically designed for children aged 3-4 years old. The program incorporates basic karate skills training with fun activities designed to improve your child’s co-ordination, strength, flexibility and confidence into every class. The most popular part of this class with parents is the strong emphasis on stranger danger principles and effective self defence against larger opponents. Along with this the children must undertake social interactions with their Sensei and class mates using appropriate manners and disciplines to achieve successful outcomes. Each class finishes with a meditation concept designed to teach our grasshoppers to hone their concentration and focus towards mindful objectives. If your child is shy or extremely energetic this class caters for all children and we welcome you to come along and see for yourself.
Give your child the opportunity to grow their character and refine their skills through traditional Karate classes. We plan to introduce dedicated Grasshopper classes if there is sufficient demand for this program.

Teenage Karate Program
Juniors: 12-14 years
Our Junior system is a fantastic way to get any 12-14 year-old active in martial arts. As they progress you will notice a positive difference in their self-confidence, self-respect and personal growth. Our Junior system is an extension to our Pee-wee curriculum meaning pee-wee students can integrate into the junior system rather than starting again. Newcomers are given the opportunity to develop their skills before progressing to the next grade system. The entire Goju-Ryu Karate curriculum is taught to Junior students; however, they are only tested on the fundamentals as they build strength, knowledge and confidence in their Karate skills.
The junior system teaches traditional, but practical self-defense techniques, preparing young adults for a wide range of scenarios. The fundamental aspects of the junior system are to teach these young men and women the value of avoiding conflict and the confidence to set and achieve the goals in a way that promotes a high work ethic. Juniors are eligible right from their first lesson to attended weekend training camps and seminars and participate in our annual friendship tournament. Our instructors are friendly and approachable so why not get in touch with us and get your young teens involved in an activity that benefits their mental and physical health.
Teenage Karate Program
Cadets: 15-17 years
Cadet Karate classes are for those aged between 15-17 years of age, or for those Junior class students who have excelled in their training. The cadet system teaches the entire adults’ curriculum to its students but acknowledges that the body is still growing and developing. The aim of the system is to prepare students for adult life both physically and mentally by a train hard, train smart approach to all lessons.
Classes are generally no longer than 90 minutes and are offered numerous times through the week to avoid any conflict with and support time for school studies. Our instructors aim to supplement our cadet members higher school studies through Karate training by maintaining a high level of health and care for the body and mind. Practical self-defense techniques are paramount and included in each class and members are eligible to attend all AOGKF training camps, seminars, friendship tournaments and social events.
