Macquarie University Goju Kai Karate Club

Is one of the longest established clubs on the campus of the Macquarie University. Established in the late 1960's , the club has continually provided instruction of a very high standard to the students at a greatly reduced and subsidised rate. Instructor Paul Starling is one of Australia's most senior Karate masters.

A founder member of the Australian Karate Federation [formerly Federation of All Australian Karate do Organisations] Paul Starling called Australian members together for the very first meeting of the Federation 40 years ago, at Coogee NSW,  hence establishing the inaugural gathering of Karate masters in Australian History .

Established 1968-1969 the Macquarie Uni Karate Club has the distinction of being one of the longest running clubs at the University with Paul Starling [ Shihan] personally teaching the classes over the past 40 years. Many club members have attained the coveted Black Belt level of achievement only awarded to the dedicated student of karate do after many years of traditional and disciplined training.

In this day and age of self promoted Instructors of dubious lineage and ability , and  people selling Karate do as if it were merely another disposable commodity, the Instructors of Goju Kai Karate do maintain the traditional precepts of Karate do, whereby the Shodan-Black Belt is only awarded to selected & dedicated members after a minimum of at least 3 years of intensified training.

Black Belt members of the Macquarie University Karate Club have gone on to receive the prestigious Blues Awards from the Macquarie University Sports Association, via their attainment of Australian Championship Gold Silver and Bronze Medals in the Australian Universities [Intervarsity] Karate Championships, and other State and Australian Titles.

ATTIRE & TRAINING.

Members and beginners generally arrive between 6 & 6.30 pm which is the period that the warming up & stretching is commenced. Beginners during 1st semester will join a self defence class which operates for most of the first half of the semester. Students should wear loose fitting clothing, a dogi [karate uniform] can be purchased at a later stage and must be worn with the goju kai fist. This is compulsary for all students attempting the first grading test whereby students are eligible to attempt promotion after a minimum of 24 classes. University students leaving lectures by 6pm can warm up and join into the class by 6.30pm. Students are welcome to commence their participation in the classes at any time during the year.
Students may still commence training after the beginning of the class at a time that suits their lecture and tutorial schedule.
