you can change your world

At The Karate School our philosophy is simple: Let us empower you to be the best that you can be. Let us help you become leaders in your community by allowing you to grow in strength and wisdom through the art of Karate.
Let us guide you on your journey.


Of course we teach traditional and sports karate. Our emphasis is on empowering people to be better leaders, decision makers and ultimately just "better people".
We also offer a variety of self defence courses and classes in different types of weaponry and defence against weapons, such as Iai-Jutsu and knife defence.
We have a highly successful team of instructors who have years of experience in teaching in various school environments, whether they be part of an after school care program or holiday programs. Many schools currently use us to provide a sports and fitness alternative that also helps children become the leaders of tomorrow.
We always try to give back to the community, hence why we are awarded community service awards and ensure that many students from disadvantaged back grounds are catered for and looked after. Talk to us about how we can make a difference in your child's life today. You'd be surprised at the effectiveness of Karate.


Our Classes

We have a variety of classes for all ages and abilities, including for students with special needs. See more below


Kids's Karate

Karate is a great and fun way to increase physical fitness through training for stronger, healthier bodies.
Karate will help develop self control and discipline, increase self-confidence and develop leadership and communication skills and it instils honesty, integrity, dedication and determination.


Adults Karate

Just like with kids, we all would like to be more empowered and achieve goals in our life.

Karate is a rewarding way to get your life on track and reach milestones such as fitness, self defence, discipline and more!



This is the Melbourne branch of the Jikyo-Juku School of Japanese swordsmanship. “Jikyo-Juku” can be translated to “School of Inner Strength”, which is a succinct way to describe the art of Iaijutsu and the manner of its instruction at our schools.

Jikyo-Juku Australia is the only authorised branch of the Yamauchi School of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu operating in Australia.


Self Defence

At The Karate School we also tech all ranges of self defence, armed, unarmed, self defence for women and kids.

From time to time we also engage with local Law enforcement and other experts to come out and give practical and theoretical seminars.
