KAJ Training Centres
(also known as Dojos)

The 'Dojo' is the spiritual & traditional centre where Karate and other Japanese Martial Arts are taught. Learning in the dojo should be practical and enjoyable, cultivating wisdom, self-discipline, responsibility, and courage.

Please choose one of the State fly out sub-menus on the left to see the details of each training centre along with a map to help you find it.


Along with the Karate training techniques and methods, these additional general rules and etiquette guidelines must be learnt and practiced, in order to foster respect for the art of Goju-Ryu Karate, the Academy, and your fellow students.

These rules have evolved over the years and go side by side with physical training in learning this highly respected art. These guidelines are mostly common sense and seldom have to be enforced, once explained.

  1. No smoking in the dojo.
  2. No alcohol to be consumed in dojo.
  3. No swearing allowed.
  4. No jewelery to be worn during training.
