Australian Shukokai

Karate Association


Welcome to Samurai Karate Australia

With Samurai Karate you will experience a traditional Japanese Karate Style known as Shukokai. A dynamic, explosive, and powerful Martial Art for Men, Women and Children of all ages.

Established in Australia since 1980, our association is affiliated with Japan, with lineage spanning back to the beginning, through the teachings of Senseis’ Kawata, Tani, to Mabuni.

We are part of Samurai International with schools all over Australia and across the world. Shihan Darren Olsen, 7th Dan & Australian Chief instructor, leads a team of highly qualified Instructors who are recognized all over the world.
