Traditional Karate

Multiple Dojos



“Fantastic people with a real passion for Gojuryu Karate. What both Indy and Marie organise for their students is beyond caring with both National and International Competitions and Seminars and their link up with Gojuryu Karate do Seiwakai Network for the instructors development.” 

Glenn Stephenson, Goju Ryu Karate Do Seiwakai Australia

“My son is attending Ilford dojo for more than a year now. He likes Sensei Indran a lot because of his good sense of humour and methods of teaching. As a parent , I like their (both sensei Marie and Indran) way of teaching, as they take very personal care of each student and for their attention to details. My son has improved a lot over the period. All credits to them. I wish them all the best!”

Bonny Shahriar, Parent

“Love this club, my twins have been going since February this year and they enjoy it very much. They have learnt so much already and it’s a happy place too, their Sensei teaches good discipline and also has a good sense of humour which the kids love, I would recommend this club to anyone. 5 stars!”

Sarah Isitt, Parent
