Welcome to GSK Karate for all ages 4 and above

At GSK, we teach quality traditional Japanese Shotokan karate. This means very efficient self-defence techniques that will build your confidence and skills.

Building good moral character and confidence

We work on good behaviour skills, etiquette, effective communication, building strong moral character and confidence, having a positive self-image, and respecting others. We foster qualities like humility, patience, and focus in all our students every day because it just doesn’t happen by accident.

Learning how to generate real power with your body for self-defence

Karate got its name because it enables smaller or weaker people to generate significant amounts of force and power to protect themselves and do it extremely efficiently! To do this, you need  to understand the mechanics of using your whole body (knowledge passed on from our masters before us) and through continuous training. Learn more.

Train with international masters

They cover overall body strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, agility, focus, attitude, listening skills, good manners (dojo etiquette), awareness of others, and social skills (interacting with others). The student is required to think a lot more about everything they are required to do. 

Competition for the competitor in you!

Competition is not for everyone and we understand this. So we have a competition team for those who really want to excel at a competition and love the idea of getting a medal and becoming a champion. If you are very competitive and feel the need to feed that competitive streak in you, then look no further. But if competition is not you, we don’t force you to compete if you don’t want to.  Learn more.
