My son has been doing karate at SMA for a couple of months now and absolutely loves it! He had never shown much interest in sports previously. It's been the best thing we've done for him. In a short time we've already noticed an increase in his confidence and he has learned so much. Sensei Chris is fantastic with children and the classes are fun. They have excellent communication and resources on their website for training etc. Also love how they teach the children valuable life lessons and self defense. Highly recommend!

Why do Martial Arts & Karate?

There are many benefits to undertaking Martial Arts. We have captured just some of them below. We recommend everyone should learn at least the basics in their lifetime. You are never to old or to young.

Martial Arts for Kids and Adults

Shizoku Martial Arts is a Christchurch karate club that uses proven street smart self defense techniques from around the globe. Combining techniques from Okinawa te Karate, Okinawa Budokan, Krav maga, Silat, Kali, Jujtsu and more to provide a system of effective techniques.

Self Defence & Life Skills

Developing confidence, self discipline, focus and many more essential life skills are at the heart of what we teach. Martial Arts is so much more than just kicking and punching. Check out our Life skills program.

Fitness, Energy And Vitality

From a fitness perspective, the techniques practised during each class involve the use of every muscle and bone in the body making it an excellent all-over body workout. Involving the entire body also serves to develop balance, agility, coordination and flexibility.

Found this was a family friendly place to take your children to learn knew skills, build confidence, and get fit, make friends,and learning ways to defend themselves, The Teacher is understanding of all the children and there needs and still pushes them to be there best. I'm so happy we joined our son, he was so shy couldn't talk to anyone but in a short time he talks to all the children and can't wait for Wednesday to learn you skills and enjoy being push to his limits he walks out of every class excited for next class. I highly recommend anyone to join all ages.
