How To Join

Many new students worry that they will be alone as a new white belt. This is not the case! There are always several beginners in the same position as you! And we all started that way ourselves. You will certainly not feel left out.

For those that want a taste of what we have to offer, our Beginners' Course might be for you. In this course, we have a very strong focus on self-defence, along with the basics of karate.

If you feel like coming along to either class, you can watch, or even participate! If you do decide to join in a lesson, make sure you are wearing clothes suitable for a work-out, such as loose pants and a T-shirt.

We are located upstairs on level 1 of the UNSW Fitness & Aquatic Centre, please refer to the following map if you aren't sure where that is:
