Testimonials

Chick
Fantastic! My daughter has Aspergers and the Shobukan Young Samurai program has helped her balance, confidence, ability to remember more than one instruction at a time, fitness and she can raise one leg off the ground without falling over most of the time now! She loves the lessons and the fantastic instructors.
Paul & Sophie Franceschini
Shobukan have a unique approach in teaching children and adults of all ages. Their instructional style is informative, professional, disciplined, challenging and fun. These great qualities have enabled Stephanie and Danika to achieve great success in traditional karate techniques and in the competitive karate arena with a number of Australian Gold Medals. We highly recommend Dion and Michael without hesitation or qualification.
Charmaine
We were previously with another club who after 1yr still did not know my daughter's name, nor could she even kick properly. We have never looked back since moving to Shobukan. The teachers are fantastic and focused on developing the children to be the best they can. There are numerous teachers per class to ensure everyone receives the proper attention. Teachers know every student's name and how they are progressing and are happy to talk to parents about any concerns. Shobukan feels more like a family than a karate class and I recommend them to anyone interested in karate.
Murray
So friendly, welcoming and supportive! My son (6 years old) joined up and had such a good time that I joined as well. Such a great group there; for all ages and fitness levels. Thoroughly recommended!
Samantha Lakin
I've recently started my 3 and 5 yr old sons here and I love it (so do they!). My 5 yr old had previously been going to a different martial arts school but this one feels so much better. The staff and Sensei are all so friendly and it feels very welcoming every time we go. Sensei Mike is amazing with the kids and you can see he loves working with them and helping them achieve in a friendly atmosphere. The way Mike keeps the kids focused is amazing also. At the old martial arts centre, it usually felt like there wasn't enough instructors, but at Shobukan there are usually 1 or to instructors for 3 or 4 kids. Thanks, we love it!
Natalie Kowol
We feel very lucky to be a part of Shobukan Martial Arts. My daughter and son have been under the excellent guidance and instruction of Sensei Mike and Dion for 4 years now. They have gained focus, confidence, a positive attitude, and respect, not to mention a tremendous knowledge of martial arts skills and safety awareness/self defence skills.....all while having a lot of fun! Being able to train at the various Shobukan locations also gives us the flexibility to balance our busy load ensuring the kids don’t miss out on their training. I have also joined Kick Box and Burn adult classes and I am also benefiting with exercise, martial arts knowledge and training, and having a great time while doing it! Shobukan has been a great addition to our family life.
Nat
I came across Shobukan in my research and decided to give it a go. After the first session we got in the car to drive home and both kids asked when when can we go back next,which i though was pretty amazing considering some of the program we'd tried in the past, i was asked in the car to never go back again. My boy is paying so much more attention and my girls confidence and ability to have a go at some of these gross motor tasks has been pretty significant.

Moreover, martial arts assist kids in developing respect for peers and authority figures. Showing respect is skill children need to learn early. Respecting everyone means tolerance.
