Why is my account still being debited when it’s Christmas & there’s no training? 2018-01-26T20:32:38+00:00

The fortnightly payment is based on 44 weeks of training (although actual training weeks is around 47) and spread across 26 payments (52 weeks). This is to make budgeting easier for parents & the Dojo.

How much are the uniforms (Gi)? 2018-01-26T20:51:08+00:00

Standard Student Gi’s are $55 including the Dojo badge embroidered on to Gi top. Students have the option to purchase different Gi’s for Competition & can be selected from our suppliers website (www.smai.com.au).

What is this “Blackbook” I keep hearing about? 2018-01-26T20:54:33+00:00

The Blackbook is the Student curriculum that documents what students need to now for each grading. It also includes Japanese terminology, information about Shukokai Karate Katas, Stances & Techniques.  The new book due for release early 2018 will also include the History of Shukokai and biographies on current & previous Sensei’s relevant to Australian Shukokai Karate-Do Renmei & Northern Rivers Shukokai Karate Dojo

Where can I get a copy of the black book? 2018-01-26T20:56:00+00:00

The new book will be available for purchase from Sensei when it has been released at a cost of $50 per set. Each student will require their own copy.

Am I/my son/daughter ready for grading? 2018-01-26T20:58:37+00:00

Nomination for grading & readiness for grading will be dependent on a number of factors: Regular attendance of classes, Effort put into training during class, knowledge of terminology demonstrated during class.

When do I need to purchase a Gi? 2018-01-26T21:01:32+00:00

We do not recommend parent purchase a Gi until they are confident that students will continue to train regularly. Gi’s are purchased through the Dojo. Sometimes there are secondhand Gi’s available at a reduced price.

Do you train with weapons? 2018-01-26T21:04:30+00:00

At this stage, we do not train with weapons (even though we do have Bo’s & Arnis sticks in the Dojo). We will introduce Bo/Jo & possibly Arnis at a later date once we have found a suitably qualified instructor.
