South Coast Shotokan Karate is run to serve our local community. We are qualified and experienced. Our instructors volunteer to teach and manage the club. As a result, our costs are lower than commercial providers but we maintain high standards which means great value for members.

We offer classes for adults, teens and kids from beginner to black belt levels in North Nowra and Berry (see the classes tab for details) during school terms. Training for adults and advanced levels is also provided.

Members enjoy training all year in a safe and supportive environment with on-going development by attending regular training, a range of camps, seminars, tournaments and world class master instructor visits. Our reputation for traditional and effective self-defense and fitness and competition success continues to grow. Training includes basic and complex techniques, forms, non-contact sparring, fitness, stretching, self-defence applications, sport karate and weaponry.

Our club motto: dream - train - achieve is embodied by the Resident Instructor who started learning karate in the 1980s and, has competed in and taught karate since 2001. We are the only Shotokan Karate club in the Shoalhaven with direct affiliation with Shotokan Karate International Australia and Shotokan Karate International Federation. We teach the same karate as taught to us by Hirokazu Kanazawa Soke and other excellent senior dan grade Instructors from Australia and overseas.
