Welcome to Kansai Karate
Sensei Stephen Kelly, 6th Dan, Kyoshi (master) and the whole Kansai Karate Academy family welcome you to our Organisation. Kansai Karate Academy was founded by Stephen Kelly in Queensland in 1993 and is part of the worldwide Shito-ryu Shukokai World Karate Union. The Academy’s award-winning Honbu (Headquarters) dojo is located in the Brisbane western suburb of Sumner Park, which is approx. 15 kms from the city. Being a full time professional dojo enables students to train safely 6 days a week. Sensei Stephen and his staff of highly trained and qualified instructors teach traditional and sport karate in a modern, energetic and exciting atmosphere that will benefit both you and your family. Our specially formulated classes are separated and designed to cater for all ages from 3 years to adults. Our Classes focus on learning and improving self-defence, fitness, co-ordination, balance and confidence.
