Students log in to every class via the club touch screen system. As well as allowing the students to keep track of their attendance, the system also allows the instructors to better organise classes appropriate to the level of attendance, so we can ensure a quality service provided to each student.

Don't want to train at a place where the sole focus is on competition? Don't worry - Sydney Karate club is a family friendly and very socially active environment. Everyone is there to help each other train - there are no attitudes and no egos allowed.

If you want to get fit, have fun and learn self defence – Sydney Karate Club is the place for you!
Sydney Karate Club was established in the Ultimo area in 2002. The club was founded with the goal of teaching self-defence to a small group of friends, and from here Sydney Karate Club has grown, offering freestyle karate and self-defence classes to people of all ages from its specialised facility in Ultimo. Sydney Karate Club started its first classes in the park on Mary Ann St. The Club quickly grew and moved into the Harris Community Centre Church Hall in 2003 and in 2005 Sydney Karate Club opened its second location in the West Epping Scout Hall. After 9 years in the Harris Community Centre Sydney Karate Club made the decision to set-up its own permanent space in the area moving one street away to 190/392 Jones St Ultimo. In 2012 Sydney Karate Club ratified its constitution, and become an Incorporated Sports Organisation, continuing its original goal to teach self-defence with all profits being directed back into the club.
Our classes are open to men, women, and children. We welcome anyone who wants to learn.

A great karate club with classes for all ages. The kids love it. I attend 3-4 classes per week which is good value for... money. The instructors teach self defence on top of the regular karate techniques so it's a real confidence boost in life. Highly recommend anyone trying it out!read more

Great club – perfect for beginners and the experienced alike. Wonderful atmosphere and great practical teaching, all... in a central location. And thankfully not too big on the 'formalities' or 'zen inappropriateness'. Also with a good proportion of skills training and learning vs fitness, and with a realistic attitude to attendance – train to best suit your own pace and busy schedules. It's hard to find a martial arts club with the right balance. This is it.read more

I've been going to Sydney Karate club for many years. I love it because it's more than karate, it's a community and... it's welcoming of all ages! Everyone is so approachable and happy to support each other. In class, you get to learn practical defence, how to use weapons, fitness, sparring, Kata, balance, discipline, respect...the list goes on! The teachers are passionate and all have their own specialities meaning there's always variety to the classes. I would highly recommend the Sydney Karate Club because of it's community feel and supportive atmosphere.read more
