Community Martial Arts - Friendly and Dedicated Martial Arts Classes

At Community Martial Arts, we pride ourselves on our commitment to high standards in our Mount Albert martial arts classes. Our lead karate instructor, Renshi Brian Larter (6th Dan), has 40 years of martial arts and self defense experience and brings an exceptional level of skill and insight to his teaching. The martial arts are an ancient practice, sometimes clouded in our modern world by tendencies towards competition and dominance. At Community Martial Arts, we focus on fitness and self-discipline, while maintaining an atmosphere of friendliness and fun. Our underlying principles are, and always will be, honour, integrity, and humility.

We provide Shotokan karate classes for kids and adults. Students can train in this discipline up to three times a week. Our kids' classes generally start with a game, followed by a warm-up, karate basics and a selection of karate kata, sanbon kumite and self defense. In our adult program, we add bunkai and ippon kumite to round out the training. At Community Martial Arts, we believe in building our students' confidence through a focus on the fundamental stances, blocks, punches and kicks, giving both the newcomer and the experienced martial artist a well-rounded karate program. We dedicate ourselves to providing you with the most fun and energetic classes in martial arts that Mount Albert has ever seen!
