GKR Karate Philosophy
GKR Karate has a simple approach to teaching and training.
Students from all walks of life can enjoy training in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere amongst other students. Our instructors are keen to help each student develop their skills and gain from the many benefits that training in a martial art such as GKR Karate has to offer.
Above all, the philosophy of GKR Karate is an extension of the Founding Father’s personal philosophies on life, training, and humility. Kancho Robert Sullivan and his top instructors personify what it means to be a humble teacher and promoter of the art.
GKR Karate is a way of life. For many students, it is a great social outlet where they can train in a martial art while gaining confidence and inner security. For many, it gives them a terrific vehicle for gaining much needed coordination, balance and general fitness. For others, it is a strong martial art with which they can take their training to the highest level possible, from reaching the coveted rank of Black Belt to reaching the top in the competition arena.
GKR Karate prides itself on being a family club. Students as young as 5 years of age can train along side their parents, or grandparents, with some of the oldest members well into their 70’s!
Although karate training promotes self-defence and fitness, it also promotes discipline, confidence, inner security, character development and an improved feeling of well-being. In this day and age, people of all walks of life, male and female, can partake in GKR Karate classes with the knowledge that they are in a room with other like minded people and an accredited instructor whose goal is to help them improve themselves both physically and mentally.
