Situated in the heart of Thirroul, our dojo is dedicated to fostering the spirit and discipline of karate within our local community. We provide a nurturing and inclusive environment for students of all ages and skill levels, from complete beginners to advanced martial artists.

Our Philosophy

Our mission is to promote physical fitness, mental discipline, and personal growth through the art of karate.

Karate at Thirroul Dojo is more than a martial art; it is a path to continuous self-improvement and resilience.

What We Offer
Our Lineage

Thirroul Dojo follows the principles of Kimura Shukokai Karate, a style known for its powerful and efficient techniques. This dynamic martial art was developed by Soke Shigeru Kimura and combines traditional karate with modern scientific principles. Our instructors are committed to preserving the rich heritage of Kimura Shukokai Karate while incorporating contemporary training methods.

At Thirroul Dojo, our training program is designed to cater to all age groups and skill levels, ensuring a comprehensive and inclusive experience.

For our youngest members, the Bonsai (Ages 4-5) program introduces karate basics through fun activities focused on coordination, discipline, and confidence. The Little Warriors (Ages 7-11) classes build on foundational techniques with more advanced skills, fostering achievement and teamwork.

Our Junior Samurai and Samurai (Ages 12-17) program develops advanced techniques, fitness, and mental discipline, preparing teenagers for higher levels of training and competition. For adults, we offer Adult Karate (18+), which provides comprehensive sessions for all skill levels, emphasising technique, fitness, self-defence, and kata.

We also offer Advanced Training for advanced students, focusing on high-level techniques, sparring, and tournament preparation, and Sunrise Samurai, early morning sessions that combine fitness, karate practice, and mindful movement to start your day right.
