Traditional Goju Kai Karate on the North Coast

Welcome to North Coast Goju Kai Karate-do (NCGK). We are a martial arts club with strong foundations in self defence through teaching the traditional Okinawan martial art of Goju Ryu Karate-do. The photo above shows our Founder - Chojun Miyagi Hanshi (middle), Gogen Yamaguchi Hanshi (right) and Goshi Yamaguchi Saiko Shihan Hanshi (our current Grand Master).

Since 1977 Goju Kai Karate has been taught on the North Coast of NSW, and began in Australia in 1963, over 57 years ago.  

Led by our President, Director and NSW Branch Chief for IKGA (International Karate-do Goju Kai Association) Rick Burton 5th Dan Shihan our club and its very experienced instructors promote a safe and respectful learning environment for karate students to progress at their pace.

Through our Karate we teach not only self defence but self-confidence, discipline, balance and co-ordination as you learn blocks, strikes and stances and progress through the detailed syllabus that is created by our grand master Yamaguchi Goshi, Saiko Shihan, in Japan.
