Karate has a rich Asian history that dates back from Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotukan Karate who brought the practice on the main islands of Japan in the early 20th century.

Through the years, karate has evolved to become a form of discipline and self defence. Australian Goju Kai Karate offers classes that teach self defence skills that can be easily applied in real life situations.

For its free session in Ascot, Australian Goju Kai Karate will teach specific karate movements with aerobics benefits. The session will show everyone that karate can also be a form of exercise that can tone muscles, improve balance and coordination, and enhance cardiovascular strength.
