 Are you ready to dramatically improve your child’s self-esteem, performance at school, sociability and manners?

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could have someone with experience do all this FOR YOU in such a fun way that they will BEG you to take them back each week?


Little Samurai Karate Kids
Little Samurai Club

The Little Samurai Club is a martial arts program for children aged between 6 - 7.

Children learn a variety of martial arts techniques and games to help them develop the skills necessary for participation in any sport or activity: focus, control, balance, memory, discipline, fitness and coordination and teamwork.

The Little Samurai Club program also covers some important life/social skills used to encourage and reinforce important values: respect for others, confidence in yourself, standing up to bullying etc.


Karate Kids

The Karate Kids Program is a martial arts program for children aged between 8-12yrs.

Kids love competition sports, but some children don't excel at them, so those participating in these sports can have diminished feelings of self-worth.

There is some overwhelming evidence that martial arts teaches self-esteem and the higher the level of self esteem, the more likely that our kids will treat others with respect, kindness and try harder at most things.

Teaching kids karate will help with their self confidence which will equip them to meet and deal with the challenges that lie ahead.
The instructors at Guy's Karate School will encourage your kids to be the best they can be


senior Karate
Senior Classes

In every one of our adult martial arts classes, you'll learn self-defense skills for safety & protection... You'll experience inner-development as you push yourself.

In our Karate club students will learn the original defensive applications that are covered by our style of Shotokan Karate. These bring elements of ground fighting, joint locking, and throwing as well as the punching and kicking methods.

Our Karate programs also includes advanced specialty classes focusing on reality-based weapon defenses (stick, gun, and knife)

We love Guys Karate School! Our daughter has really come out of her shell socially and her confidence as improved greatly!! She was super nervous on her first day, the sensei’s got along side her and helped calm her nerves! They’re always super encouraging and I’m not sure how they do it but they always remember each kids name!! Would 100% recommend 🙂

Highly recommended! Guy's Karate School has been fantastic for my kids. Their family orientated approach and huge range of lesson options has seen our family continually succeed, resulting in my kids overcoming anxiety, learning important life skills, achieving expertise in martial arts, and approaching all challenges with an expectation of triumph. Thank you to Lindsay Guy and your fantastic, professional team for helping create a family of accomplished martial artists and confident students.

After trying several other schools we are amazed by the trainers here. The manner in which they work with every student, from the littlest kids to the adults, to guide them to achieve their best is second to none. My boys have come ahead in leaps and bounds since moving here and I’m excited to see what their future holds with GKS.

Lindsay is an amazing professional, in a very short period of time he has changed my nephew, who has special needs, life around. He is now focused, positive, has increased self esteem and is getting healthier. He has achieved a level in his karate that would not have been thought possible. Lindsey is kind and understanding whilst still expecting a very high input from his student

Kids Karate Classes

Karate is a great sport for kids helping to build self-confidence, self esteem, balance, discipline, co-ordination and courtesy, while learning basic self-defence skills. Children may start training with GKS as young as 3 years of age.

GKS's Kids Classes
GKS’s kids classes endeavour to provide an encouraging atmosphere .These classes run for one hour and consist of basic training as well as many karate-associated games.

Grading System That Helps With Goals
GKS provides a coloured belt system where all students start at White belt and work up through different colours (Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, Brown, Black Tip and finally, Black belt). This helps not only to measure a child’s progress but also provides a journey to start on. Children are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teaches them life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.
