At Bungendore Traditional Karate we are dedicated to practicing, preserving and teaching Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate. Our purpose is to improve the Bungendore community, one individual at a time through the practice of traditional Karate. We offer Karate tuition for kids, teens, adults and families to members of the Bungendore community and its surrounds.

The style we train in is Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate, a complete martial art with lineage that can be traced back over many centuries. Goju-Ryu translates to ‘hard & soft style’, a concept that underpins our extensive curriculum. Our classes consist of traditional warm-ups, basic skills, close quarter fighting, long distance and ground fighting.  At the heart of Karate is the kata, a series of choreographed movements in which a student uses to practice physical and mental responses to a range of real life situations.

Bungendore Traditional Karate is a member of Canberra Traditional Karate Centres locally, Australian Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Federation Nationally and International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Federation Internationally, the largest and finest traditional karate organisations in Australia and the world.

We believe that traditional karate has something to offer everyone regardless of age, gender, race or background. We believe that Karate has the ability to change the way you think, speak and act. It develops physical power, mental toughness and emotional maturity. It gives you a place in a community of people who share the same values and take their training seriously.

We sincerely look forward to having you join us in our classes. We welcome students of all abilities and experience to join our Karate family. Our instructors are internationally accredited and promote a safe inclusive environment to learn in and one that fosters respect for self and others.
