Welcome to JKA Bribie Island
JKA Bribie Island opened in 2016 under the instruction of Sensei Roy (4th Dan JKA) and Sensei Marie (3rd Dan JKA) who are thrilled to be sharing their passion for the art to local students.
"Karate-do" means "the way of the empty hand" and is a martial art and system of self-defence: a way of life which teaches discipline, respect, strength, speed, focus and control.
Our club aims to provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment for all students allowing them to progress through their Karate journey. Not only do students learn correct technique, discipline, stamina and focus but develop self confidence, patience, perseverance and open mindedness: all important life skills creating a strong foundation of character.
Karate is not just a hobby but seen as a way of life.
What is JKA?
The JKA (Japan Karate Association) was founded in 1949 with its Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. JKA are famously known as the Keeper of Karate's Highest Tradition and one of the most prestigious and largest Karate organisations found in over 100 countries worldwide.
Here at Bribie Island Dojo we study the traditional Shotokan method where Karate is not a sport but an art aiming to unite body, mind and spirit.
Shotokan karate is one of the most widely practiced forms of karate in the world today, and one of the most traditional. Introduced to Japan by Supreme Master Funakoshi Gichin, Shotokan puts heavy focus on three main elements:
KIHON (basic techniques),
Together these develop a range of powerful and dynamic techniques and a well rounded Karate-Ka.
Bribie Island Dojo is affiliated to JKAA (Japan Karate Association Australia), and is a registered Dojo with JKA Headquarters in Tokyo Japan.
