Original Traditional Karate Classes in Brisbane & Adelaide


The Australian Karate Academy is run by Sensei Bob McMahon 7th Dan, and his son Cheyne McMahon, 5th Dan. Our karate school is based in Brisbane South and Adelaide CBD.  We have specialised classes and programs designed for Kids, Teenagers, and Adults. We teach Seito Karate Seitokukai under the guidance of Sensei Mitani Kazuya in Chiba, Japan.
Students learn original karate fundamentals for self-defense – strikes, kicks, stand up grappling, throws, takedowns, joint manipulation, vital point attacks, and kobudo (okinawan weapons). As well as old style karate, we are also experts in competition karate with the AKA producing many state, national and international champions.


The AKA is able to offer high quality programs to suit the whole family including:


All of our martial arts Brisbane classes and programs offer a TRIAL CLASS membership so that you can be sure that you have made the right decision.
