At the end of 2020, the Philippines was hit by one of the strongest Typhoons in history. Over 2 million were affected with flooding and landslides washed away homes, schools, and roads.  A week later another typhoon followed destroying 300,000 homes.

Join us for an action-packed seminar with world-class training with Chief at Arms (and Lahong Guro), Heikki Martikainen. With over 40 years of martial arts experience, Heikki has travelled the world sharing his passion for martial arts, and experienced firsthand the devasting effects of natural disasters in the Philippines, the birthplace of Kali.

The seminar will cover various topics of the Kali system and is open to all practitioners of all systems and all levels. Suitable for 13yrs +

Taste the cultural essence of Philippino food at the end of the seminar.

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.

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.
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.
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!

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!
