Welcome to the Australian Karate Academy, Sydney. We teach karate under the auspices of the Australian Karate Academy.
We focus on traditional karate and it's application as a system for self protection as distinct from the sport aspect. This is not to say that this is not an extremely valuable pursuit and we also do not avoid this part of the art however our main interest in the martial arts is as a tool to protect oneself and those we love who are unable to do so.
The other dimension of karate which is sometimes overlooked or assumed to the detriment of the practitioner is strength and fitness which we also focus on as part of a total self protection system. This has obvious benefits to the individual but if (and I hope you never do) you actually ever need to defend yourself physically, you need to be able to withstand the rigours of an encounter. They're messy and ugly but they're also exhausting.
So, if your goal is to get fit and strong and at the same time learn a beautiful art that has the benefits of strengthening mind and body, we can help.
