My son is really enjoying Newcastle Karate. The trial sessions were a great opportunity to see if he liked it and now he goes 3 days a week. He loves training, sparring, learning new skills and developing his technique. The senseis are welcoming and supportive, and he would go everyday if he could :)

K R ,

An excellent dojo. All the Senseis are very knowledgeable, patient and caring with the kids. My son’s confidence has grown immensely, as well as his dedication to his fitness and his gradings. He loves it !!

Naomi G ,

Newcastle Karate came recommended to me and we are so pleased we enrolled our kids there. They have been training under Sensei Marc and the team for a number of years now and the growth in their skill and confidence has been great to watch. 100% recommended.

Rowan ,

I recently wrote to Sensei Mark and his team to thank them for how they teach, help and assist my twin grandsons who have a disability. I was very impressed with Sensei Mark and his team because they teach in such an inclusive way, make adaptions for my grandsons disabilities and help them to maximize their abilities. What impresses me most about Sensei Mark and team is their ability to reach out to everyone and present this Dojo as a place of learning and personal growth. A warm place to be!

Lindsay ,

My son has been attending Newcastle Karate's kindy ninja classes since he was 3 and a half. It has been such a great experience, he has learnt and grown so much in the last 18 months and the sensei and all the staff have been so supportive, patient and amazing. Highly recommend 😊
