A completely systematized method of learning/teaching for children and adults, delivered in a traditional atmosphere, honouring both the culture from which it comes and the masters who pioneered its practice.

Functional Program:

Newcastle Karate delivers a functional program with defensive applications against the various “Habitual Acts of Physical Violence”. Most karate schools are competition oriented and their training is geared towards that outcome. Newcastle Karate is application based, functional program, unrestricted by rule bound competition. There are no referees on the street!


Are you frustrated by rule-bound practices, inflexible rituals and bored of the repetitive nature of the reverse punch point scoring arena? Newcastle Karate can teach you the original and more functional combative application practices in a rational, coherent and systematised manner.


Newcastle Karate also offers members online videos and training criteria sheets in assisting each student reaching their potential, be it self defence, flexibility, confidence, coordination and fitness. Our great supporting family atmosphere is one of the keys to Newcastle Karate’s success. We also have a car pooling notice board helping parents juggling the afternoon workload.
