Our focus is on self improvement and enjoyment, with emphasis on participation.
We believe Karate is a holistic discipline suitable for people of all ages, levels of experience and abilities.
We offer a range of kids and adults karate classes weekdays at various Dojo (places of learning) around Christchurch. We encourage students to be their best, with Karate Christchurch students and instructors enjoying much success regularly competing at regional, national and international events.
We invite prospective students to join us, and learn the art of Goju-Ryu Karate.
Karate Christchurch has a strong membership of both junior and senior students holding grades ranging from White Belt (10th kyu) to Black Belt (Shodan Ho) and beyond.
Karate Christchurch is run by a group of Pat Shihan’s senior students. As individuals, we have achieved national and international honours as athletes, coaches and judges. As a team, we are passionate about sharing our experience and knowledge with our students and have supported many to achieve their own success.
