Newcastle Karate is a black belt school with lead instructors that have over 100 years combined martial arts experience. Newcastle Karate is located at Warners Bay. The class size rarely exceeds 20 students per class. Unlike a lot of martial art schools where you can easily get lost in the crowd, each student at Newcastle Karate receives focused instruction by the senior instructors teaching within the class. Many martial arts schools have a "McDonald's style" commercialised focus, putting business and profits before the student outcomes. Our school is the perfect combination of dedicated martial arts enthusiasts, with a variety of martial arts backgrounds, bringing years of experience to each and every class. Please have a read of the student testimonials to see what our students have to say about Newcastle Karate.
Newcastle Karate practice Koryu Uchinadi, KU is a modern interpretation of Okinawa's historic fighting art and has an application based curriculum. Whilst there is large amount of hype about mixed martial arts, or (MMA), Koryu Uchinadi is the original mixed martial art. Defensive methods such as kicking, punching, strangulation, choking, joint locking, grappling, pressure point manipulation are practiced in Koryu Uchinadi.
A completely systematized method of learning/teaching for children and adults, delivered in a traditional atmosphere, honouring both the culture from which it comes and the master who pioneered its practice, Koryu Uchinadi is both an art and a science. Koryu Uchinadi is best explained as a functional and practical defence against the various “Habitual Acts of Physical Violence”.
Most karate schools are competition oriented and their training is geared towards that outcome. Newcastle Karate is application based, functional program, unrestricted by rule bound competition. There are no referees on the street!
If you are frustrated by rule-bound practices, inflexible rituals and bored of the repetitive nature of the reverse punch point scoring arena? Newcastle Karate can teach you the original and more functional combative application practices in a rational, coherent and systematised manner.
If you have previous rankings in another recognised martial arts discipline and have the supporting documentation, we will recognise your previous training. Newcastle Karate currently has students and black belts from different styles training at our Warners Bay dojo. This clearly indicates that Newcastle Karate has a training program of great value to attract senior instructors from other styles and schools. Many of our black belt students have come from different styles such as: Kyokushin, Shotokan, Goju Ryu, Wado ryu, Go Kan Ryu (GKR), kickboxing, and Taekwondo just to name a few.
"So if you are a martial arts enthusiast looking to expand your knowledge, work with a great group of people, please come and try a class! Many students and instructors have not been disappointed with our program." All ego's are left at the door before entering the dojo!
