GSKarate encourages karate/martial arts training for all ages. As the saying goes "a family that plays together stays together". We have many families training with us (including 3 sets of identical twins) who all train together and enjoy the challenges that learning real karate can bring. We encourage good character, ethical behaviour and good role-modelling in all our students.
The clubs offer discounts for more than two members of the same family. This means a whole family can get fit and stay fit together.
Five clubs in Perth and growing
GSK currently operates four clubs for WSKF Australia - at Cannington, Doubleview, Kingsley and Swan Valley - which are open to students of all ages and levels of karate/martial arts ability.
