At Pakenham Karate Academy, our aim is to teach karate in an effective manner within a safe environment. We offer several programs to suit students from as young as 3.5yrs to the more mature adult. Our classes are broken down into age and skill level. We also offer family mat time where mums and dads can train alongside with their children every Friday night.
Our karate school first opened its doors in November 2011. The centre is run and operated by ourselves, along with our two sons, Dylan and Josh. We pride ourselves on offering our students clean and safe training facilities. Our centre is equipped with central heating and cooling and consists of a fully matted training area, male and female change rooms, warm-up room and a viewing area for parents to sit back and watch their children train.
We are fully qualified, we hold Working with Children Checks and First Aid Level 2 qualifications. At Pakenham Karate Academy we teach both traditional and sports karate, with a strong focus on kihon (basics) and kata (forms). Self defence and fitness are also important elements within our overall karate teachings.
Our programs are delivered in an environment where our students feel encouraged and motivated. Through our guidance our students not only gain positive self-esteem and self-discipline, they also develop confidence and courage to become strong individuals, both mentally and physically.
