Karate Lessons for Children, Teenagers & Adults
This class is designed to prepare younger children for the rigours of Karate training as they grow and develop, both mentally and physically. Primarily focusing on the development of motor skills, balance, coordination, muscular awareness, overall strength and continued flexibility.
The Karate Kids classes are a considerable step-up from the introductory level below (Little Dragons 4-7 years). There is an expanded technical curriculum that gives children a more serious window into the basics of controlled self defense. Muscle control and power development are a focus, accompanied by flexibility and strength.
Older teens, younger adults and adults participate in the same classes. At a certain age, most teenagers want to be out of a children’s class and interacting on an adult level. Our Adult Classes are a productive mix of both male and female, younger and older students. Strong friendships are built through involvement with like-minded individuals.
Noonan Sensei has spent his life studying Martial Arts & in particular Chito-Ryu Karate-Do.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Without a doubt – the best decision we have made for an extra curricular activity for our 7 year old – supportive and community focussed with a focus on discipline and working towards something greater!
I have trained in a number of different schools and dojos over the years and The Australian Institute of Karate is by far the best place i have ever trained in. Its a proper school and every one there is welcoming and without judgment. Sensei Noonan is a wonderful and experienced teacher who imparts his knowledge freely. Training is very real world, hard , fun and catered to every level and age. It is definitely the real deal.
I have trained at this dojo since I was 9 years old. Sensei Noonan is the absolute best Sensei in Australia. The dojo gives me a sense of belonging and all of the students make you feel welcome and part of the family. Training here for 5years, I have built confidence, my mental state has gotten better and as well as my physical state. I LOVE IT HERE. I couldn’t think of any other place where I would belong. I recommend this dojo to everyone. No matter your age, weight or appearance, everyone is accepted into the family.
Training under Michael Noonan Sensei is exhilarating as he draws on his vast knowledge and experience to deliver lessons that are packed with information and insight. An hour feels like 10 minutes when training with Noonan Sensei. He is approachable and always happy to answer questions and provide guidance. I would highly recommend anyone considering learning karate to visit Noonan Sensei’s Tasseikan dojo for a friendly, supportive environment to learn practical, traditional karate.
The sensei is an amazing teacher. He really has a passion for his art and inspires his students. This type of karate is really good for kids to learn discipline and commitment. I’ve been coming here for 6 years and it’s like family here, so welcoming and friendly.
