Kyokushin karate is a traditional Japanese style of karate developed by the late Sosai Masutatsu (‘Mas’) Oyama. It is highly effective and is considered the strongest karate style.
“Shin” translates to new. We are a new organisation training in the old traditional way.
Shinkyokushin Karate Northern Beaches is a member, as are its students, of the World Karate Organisation Shinkyokushin Kai which is one of the largest karate organisations in the world.
Our organisation’s symbol, “Kokoro”, which is heart in Japanese describes the melding of the ‘mind’, ‘body’ and ‘skill’ through diligent training and exploration of ourselves in the search for personal development leading to a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.
Karate has many benefits which include improving health and fitness, building discipline and confidence, strengthening your mind and relieving stress.
At our Northern beaches dojos we aim to conduct training in a friendly and supportive atmosphere and we welcome people of all ages and abilities.
