Kyokushinkai means Association for the Ultimate Truth.

We are affiliated with the IKO Kyokushinkaikan Union. We’re also proudly an Incorporated Not for Profit Association.

We pride ourselves in providing quality, progressive instruction, within structured guidelines in a caring safe environment. The traditional values and work ethic of Kyokushin Karate are instilled in the students alongside respect and discipline. We actively encourage diversity in our classes to embrace all that our community comprises.

Yes our training is sometimes demanding, and we make no excuses for that. This is Kyokushin Karate, the ‘ultimate truth’ and the strongest karate.

What our students say…


Kyokushin Karate Gold Coast Inc. has given myself and my boys a fun, caring and supportive environment to train in karate with discipline and structure, not to mention the exercise and meeting new friends.


I am from a sporting background, but the underlying spirit I have found in this group, I have not found anywhere else. Thank you for making me feel welcome from the get-go. Looking forward to a long journey.


I owe a lot to Sensei’s Phil and Katie in helping me shape who I am today. They’re not your ‘run of the mill’ Instructors, they are exceptional people who enrich the lives of those who train with them and all they ask in return is that you work hard. If life required a tool kit, Phil and Katie are your Bunnings.
