AGKK GRADINGS are conducted throughout the year. To receive an application for grading a student must train regularly.


A student will attain their black belt with regular and consistent training. A student dedicated to the art, trains at least twice a week. Private lessons will also help. Students are able to monitor their progress and demonstrate their advancing skill level is by training for promotional gradings.


The criteria for belt promotion is not only how a student performs certain Karate techniques, but also their positive mental approach, focus, dedication and attitude are taken into consideration. The first few grading tests are not that difficult, however as a student progresses, grading demands increase and they will need to devote more time to their Karate path. Certificates are recognized worldwide and by the Australian Karate Federation.


A grading passport keeps a record of a student's progress. Official Grading Certificates are presented at the completion of the successful grading.

Why Private Lessons?


AGKK provides high quality private lessons that are a great way to learn Karate at your own pace, or to enhance your current level of training. 

They are specifically designed to meet your needs and to help you maximize the benefits of training in Karate at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

The etiquette of the dojo begins and ends with respect. AGKK prides itself on adhering to the traditions of Karate-do and the conduct of a student in the dojo must be in strict compliance those traditions. All students regardless of grade are to ensure that their conduct reflects the student creed and code of behaviour. Karate is a positive way of life.

A true karate practioner understands that personal self discipline is the key to your success. By attending training regularly your self-discipline, mental focus/awareness and confidence will continue to improve.

Kata practise will develop your character and kumite teaches you many important life skills, for example, distance and timing. Your ability to focus and react quickly and effectively will also improve.

FOOD, FUN, GAMES, MEETING AND SOCIALISING There are various special karate events and social gatherings, which allow you to "get away" and have a great time socially cultivating the true spirit of friendship and further enhance your karate knowledge. We organize movie nights, restaurant nights, barbeques and many other social events.
