Adult’s Classes

Mr Irvine (6th Dan) brings over 30 years of instructing experience from the Kodomon Bayside Dojo in the Redlands to your training classes. Kodomon Karate-Do supports the philosophy of non-violent resolution to conflict and continually works through a traditional curriculum to foster the spirit of self-discipline, and responsible physical and self-development.

Our traditional program is based on the Shuri-Te (Shito Ryu) style of Okinawan/Japanese Karate-Do as taught by Fujimoto Sensei (8th Dan) in Japan. It concentrates on the Basics (Kihon), Forms (Kata) and various safe forms of sparring exercises (Kumite).

There is a strong element of self-defence in the curriculum for both Adults and Children, taking into consideration, modern day civilian threats, the abilities of the students (age, size, etc), common sense, and appropriate responses. We concentrate and build the training in the Dojo around preventative self-defence before tackling physical responses, increasing your self-awareness and confidence in being able to handle conflict situations. Mr Irvine has studied under three of the leading Self Defence Instructors for the Queensland Police Force, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police force and Riot Squad, and the Australian Military.

Apart from the traditional aspects of Karate, there is a considerable opportunity for you to compete at State, National, and International levels in the safe, non-contact sporting side of Karate. The opportunity to represent our State or Country is much more achievable than in many other sports. After introductory training in the sparring method you will be able to compete at State level with at least two regularly scheduled State Titles every year. While competition is not compulsory, there are many useful lessons that can be gained from participation at some level.

It is our wish that you will enjoy a rewarding time, whilst training at the Dojo. Life-long lessons and achievements are earned by those students who persevere with their training. Before long, you will discover that the other students who train at the Dojo are ordinary, friendly people, and many a strong friendship has been forged at the Club.

If there are any issues you wish to discuss about training, please feel free to talk to an instructor at the Dojo before or after classes or contact Sensei Irvine on 0405 010 999 or by email at
