About The Tamworth Kyokushin Dojo

We teach beginners to advanced students, children and adults, with our classes demonstrating high discipline, strongly motivated and well focused confident students. We teach traditional Kyokushin Karate, Self Defense. Shihan Mark Tyson has over 33 years experience in Kyokushin Karate and other Martial Arts, and has been teaching and passing on his knowledge to others since 1988 and is recognised as one of the premier Instructors in Kyokushin Karate in Australia.

If you are interested in having your child, or children train in Karate, i suggest that you visit with them and you will be able to watch our junior students train, and get an idea of how we structure our classes. Many new kids, will be happy to join straight in, and others may take awhile untill they feel comfortable to do the same, we will not pressure them, as this is an introduction to our dojo, and the point is to get them interested and to not be afraid. This can happen, when they see all of the other kids in the dojo, looking confident in the karate uniforms (Dogi), and full of energy etc, which can be very intimidating to some, however, this can also pass very quickly. The next step is up to you.

What to do, if you want to participate in a class?

If you would like to join in, just arrive before the start of class, speak to the instructor, and they will allow you to participate. After class you will have a much clearer idea of what is expected of you. If you decide to have a go, just ensure that you wear comfortable appropriate clothing such as tracksuit pants and t shirt and a water bottle to rehydrate during and after class.
