GKR Karate has been established since 1984 and has thousands of members across Australia, New Zealand and the UK. GKR Karate ‘PRIME’ is an exciting new concept that aims to accelerate the learning process by offering the opportunity for students to train as often as they wish each week with a 7 day timetable and a wide range of class times.

One training pass gives you access to 20 different sessions, giving students and parents flexibility of times, and easy access to nearby classes. We also run classes right throughout all school holidays, allowing students to maintain consistency with their training and giving them extra activities to pursue during school breaks.

GKR Karate ‘PRIME’ opened in February 2018. If you’re a beginner, you’ll be starting with a whole bunch of other people just like you so NOW is the best time to take that first step!

Did you know that…

  • Children who train in karate are much less likely to be bullied – or become bullies – as they develop greater self-confidence and respect for others
  • Children’s work and classroom behaviour can be greatly improved through karate’s disciplined and respectful training environment
  • There are over 600 muscles in the human body and you will use every one of them during an average karate class
  • An adult student can burn over 1000 calories in a typical one hour karate class with many reporting significant weight loss during the first 6 months
  • Karate kicking engages all muscle groups in the upper and lower abdominal areas and strengthens the lower back
  • Enhanced flexibility from karate training can greatly increase posture and vitality… and can assist in the prevention of many age-onset injuries
  • Accomplishments in karate are often seen in a positive light by prospective employers who rightly attach images of strength, trust and good character to those who study it.

I love the discipline that karate training has given me and really enjoy competing in the tournaments! The greater GKR Karate community is so supportive and i'm proud to be a part of it.

Vicki Jenkins, Paramatta NSW

I'm so grateful for the confidence and discipline that karate training has given my kids! My youngest son was extremely shy and bullied at school for it, and since beginning training 2 years ago his confidence has come along in leaps and bounds - thankyou GKR!

Adrian Dusevic, Cheshire UK

Training with GKR Karate changed not only my life but my families too! We are fitter, happier and even closer as a family from our training together!

Alex Sianis, Adelaide SA

I signed my children up in 2013 and watched them from the sidelines for 2 years. After many invites from the Sensei I finally joined in and wish I started sooner. Being able to train alongside my children is something so rare in sports these days and something I'm so grateful to be able to do!

Craig Fenech, Liverpool NSW

I'm stronger, fitter, more confident and have made so many friends in the GKR Karate community - thankyou for helping me to become the best version of myself!

Tania Principe, Manukau New Zealand
