Kids and Parents Speak Out
My family and I have been involved with Senseii Matt Johnson -shingokan karate club for about 7 years. My children and myself have learned a lot about ourselves as well as new people and of course karate. The skills we have learned from being involved with sensei Matt are humility, dedication, resilience, stability, confidence and the list goes on. My children started at white belt with no expectations. What they have learned here you couldn’t learn anywhere else. My son is part of the leadership team and the SA State team and is going up for selection in the Australian team. Sky is the limit so whatever your dream is you are guided and taught the road to take whether it be karate or in life itself. This environment at the shingokan dojo is a family environment where we have been lucky enough to have formed lifelong friends where we all travel our own journeys together with the support of the club and each other. A fabulous club to be apart of I couldn’t imagine our life without it.
The confidence my son has gained is immeasurable. The club has discipline and strives for effort and respect. My sons fitness has improved, so has his core balance and spacial awareness. The dojo is always clean and inviting. It is impressive to be a spectator and I value that we have international guests and grand masters visit, it gives a sense of belonging to something bigger than this dojo. Sensei Matt and the leadership team are faultless in their interactions with students of all ages. As a parent you are made to feel welcome.
My son Ethan has been part of the Shingokan family for the past 8 years.
He has developed life long skills both physically & mentally
For the past 2 year he has been a member of the leadership team & help mentor other students.
This helped him step out of his comfort zone, which has helped with his confidence, leadership & communication skills.
I decided 3 years ago I would stop watching & join in the fun. I started with the parent/adult class once a week, now i train 3 times most weeks.
It’s great fun an keeps me active
Both Ethan & myself have made life long friendships in the club

Frequently Asked Questions
Will Martial Arts make my child violent ?
Absolutely not! One of the first things covered in the very first lesson is that Martial Arts is not for kicking and punching people.
Instead, we teach kids self-defense as a tool for personal growth and development. Kids learn to treat others as they want to be treated. They learn to respect all living things – from their parents to pets.
Often, kids who were violent before they joined our class changed, and became non-violent. So no, martial arts won’t make your child violent!
What is the right age to start?
We have programs for kids who are 3 years old all the way to teenagers. And we even have programs for adults.
Martial Arts is for every age . No child is too young or too old.
We have a class that fits just right.
My Child is really shy. How will i get them to participate ?
Every child is different. Your child will be assigned their instructor for their Introductory classes who will slowly build a rapport with your child. Its ok if your child wants you in the class at the start to feel comfortable and ease them through the first class.
Eventually they will be kissing you goodbye at the door while you watch them in our parents area while they flourish in their classes.
My Child doesn't play other sports and is uncoordinated.
Does your child love running and exercising but just doesn’t seem to fit into team sports? They’re not alone. Many kids are like this.
Team sports are not for everyone. In fact, team sports can often hurt your child’s self-esteem if they’re just really not cut out for it.
Martial Arts allows children to progress at their own pace. No team pressure! Children learn to set and achieve GOALS continually. Thats what develops their SELF ESTEEM.
