Traditional Karate-Do Society
We are a new society at USYD yet we teach one of the world's oldest martial arts!
We specialise in traditional karate as well as modern sports karate that is non-contact and competitive.
Our training has 3 focus areas - basics & kata (meditative pattern of forms), self-defence and kumite (sparring).
Our teachers are all government-accredited coaches, and we believe that everyone should train hard - but safely. This means you'll learn badass movements in a safe setting, and our associated instructors have never had a short or long-term injury in over 15 years.
If you've already studied karate, that's fantastic! You are invited to come and practice with us in your own style! Our instructors have studied a wide range of techniques and martial arts and can accommodate your needs.
When you join our club, you automatically become a member of the Australian Karate Federation, allowing you to participate in karate-do at the state, national, international, and potentially even world /Olympic level (2021). Our teachers have helped students win international and national contests, as well as rank in the top ten at world championships!
