The dojo is a place to be made special for practising a special martial art. In the Kintora Shotokan dojo, the observation of basic forms of etiquette is integral to the creation of a respectful and attentive atmosphere, which is conducive to learning.
We have three dojos. One in New Town, one in Margate and one in St Helens in Northern Tasmania. The New Town instructor is Suzie Jones (5th Dan), the Margate instructor is Frank Hussey (6th Dan) and the St Helens instructor is Catelyne Carpenter (3rd kyu).read more →
Karate has been great for our family. We have 4 boys and a girl and they're all pretty physical. They love their sports and are competitive (soccer is a big thing in our family) but karate is for life. Being members of the club has had a big impact on our life. It's helped us learn self-defence skills, discipline and the fundamental values to all martial arts -- respect for others and respect for yourself. "People think it teaches fighting, but it's the opposite... It teaches people to be controlled [and] with four boys in the house, that's good."
