… to the North Harbour Kyokushin website.
Congratulations on making the first step to finding out more about our dojo (club) and facilities. My wife Diane and I (Shihan Stephen Takiwa) have been involved in karate since our teenage years and have enjoyed every moment! I established our first dojo in 1982 running out of a local hall in Beach Haven with just a handful of friends and family as the founding students. Our new training centre in Birkenhead, Auckland is a state of the art facility with a high density foam matted training area for safety, complete with mirrors for self-improvement. It also has changing facilities, separate parents area & a sauna. Our Dojo draws on the talent and extensive experience of its black belts to offer challenging and varied instruction for all students. There are classes to suit every level of fitness and ability so that all participants can benefit from the principals of Kyokushin Karate.
How to Join
The hardest part is making that first step – and now you’ve already done that! Just come along, bring some comfortable clothes and chat to either Shihan Takiwa or Sensei Diane, they won’t bite! You can set up a one on one introductory session or jump right into a group class that suits your level.
…And to make it even easier to join! Fill in the online form and we’ll put your name down for two weeks free training! Come to as many sessions as you can handle! If you don’t love it there’s no obligation to continue.
