Self-Defence for Children in and around Brisbane.

Benefits of Self-Defence training for your child include:


  • Develop more confidence
  • Get fit
  • Make new friends and have fun
  • Learn how to control emotions
  • Increased focus
  • Develop practical skills to defend themselves when required

We all want the best for our children. There is nothing better than seeing your child happy and healthy. However we also know that life can be hard and issues such as bullying can have a drastically detrimental effect on your children which unfortunately can sometimes stay with them for life.


Our classes provide a dynamic program that teaches your child realistic self-defence, gives motivation to improve their fitness and provides life skills to enhance their everyday life. We teach children how to defend themselves. We also focus in teaching your child how to become more aware of their surroundings, use verbalisation and if necessary, use physical self-defence skills to protect themselves.


AGKK Self - Defence is easy to learn and provides many benefits all of which aim at building safe, healthy and confident children. It's also loads of fun. Our goal is to make our students the best they can be both within the training centre and also in their everyday lives.


Give your child a healthy, safe and confident attitude towards life!


As a parent, of course we want our children to be safe. One of the ways that we try to do this is by teaching our children about stranger danger. However, despite what we may think, unless children are provided the skills (classes/scenarios training) and taught continuously about stranger danger, unfortunately children are still very vulnerable to falling victim to a stranger.


Aside from learning skills to deal with strangers, we also teach your child about who is a safer stranger, as in some situations they may need to ask a stranger for help. Think for example a Police Officer. Even though your child may not have met that Police Officer before, depending on the circumstances, your child may need to ask them for help.



At AGKK we are dedicated to providing our participants/students with the most professional, high-quality martial arts/self-defence training in a friendly proactive atmosphere possible. Training will address the theory of self-defence, preventative strategies and physical self-defence techniques. You will be able to support yourself with basic self-defence strategies, techniques and the skills to defuse a situation.


We nurture an authentic understanding of the effectiveness and biomechanics function of movement and practical applications of traditional karate.


Goju Ryu techniques are applied using very little natural strength. In this way, a person who is significantly lesser in strength can defuse a much larger and stronger opponent. These qualities, along with many others, combine to make Goju Ryu Karate a system of self-defence without equal.
