Welcome to Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai New Zealand.
Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai New Zealand is based in Whangaparaoa, just north of Auckland and is the only New Zealand based club teaching karate as taught by Fumio Demura Sensei, 9th Dan.
Established in late 2007, the club has grown rapidly and trains from the local school hall in Manly on a Tuesday and Thursday Evenings. The club has a great friendly and relaxed atmostphere which ensures that all students not only get the most from training, but enjoy the experience as well.
We cover karate basics, Genbu-kai's extensive kata list, self-defence, keep fit and being under the guidance of Fumio Demura Sensei, also cover basic weapons. The club caters for adults and children from aged 7 onwards.
We promote not only good health, confidence and responsibility, but also the a karate Spirit which is a very important part of Demura Sensei's instruction in the learning of the dojo kun. The dojo kun consists of five rules, all equally as important. All five rules emphasize the essential belief that true karate-do not only trains the body, but also the spirit.
1. be courteous in your manners
2. have a strong sense of justice
3. be responsible for your words and actions
4. respect one another
5. karate-do is the way of the spirit to give you courage and
ambition to reach your goals as part of you life.
