International Karate Daigaku Association Australia (IKD-Australia) provides traditional karate training (non for profit) for the community and its families. Karate training is healthy for everyone and every age group. It improves people’s self confidence, spirit, focus, concentration and physical health and is ideal for learning self defence. We want to involve more people and children in sports/ self defence.
IKD-Australia is also a member of the Australian Karate Federation (AKF), Queensland Karate Association (QKA), World Karate Federation (WKF) and Oceania Karate Federation (O.K.F) which enables us to compete on state, national and international level in conjunction with our traditional art.
We practice authentic traditional Japanese Karate as taught by Gichin Funakoshi, the Father of Modern Karate.
We run classes to cater for all age groups, from beginners to advanced, junior to senior. The minimum age is 5 years and there is no maximum age. People who train regularly in karate develop improved motor skills, balance, self awareness, confidence, self defence and above all a great level of fitness. Karate training is widely known as the best form of all-round fitness.
