The International Karate Daigaku is the newest and fastest growing International Karate Organisation. Since forming in February 2011, the IKD has grown to include 57 regions in 33 countries worldwide. This is in part to the leadership of our Shihan Kai and our founder Shuseki Shihan Frank Woon-A-Tai.
“Breaking the cycle of crime & violence through the discipline of karate.”
Our main goal continues to be of service to young people throughout the world by helping them find direction in life.
International Karate Daigaku Association Australia (IKD-Australia) provides traditional karate training (non for profit) for the community and its families. Karate training improves an individuals health, self confidence, spirit, focus, concentration and physical health and is of course ideal for learning self defence. We try to involve more people and children in sports/self defence.
IKD-Australia is also a member of the Australian Karate Federation (AKF), Queensland Karate Association (QKA), World Karate Federation (WKF) and Oceania Karate Federation (O.K.F) which enables our students to compete on state, national and international level in conjunction with our traditional art.
We run classes to cater for all age groups, from beginners to advanced, junior to senior. The minimum age is 5 years and there is no maximum age. People who train regularly in karate develop improved motor skills, balance, self awareness, confidence, self defence skills and above all a great level of fitness.
