Okinawan Goju-ryu karate in Australia

Welcome to the official International Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do Federation Australia website.

The International Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do Federation (IOGKF) was established in Japan in 1979 by Morio Higaonna Sensei. IOGKF Australia was established in the same year under the authority of Higaonna Sensei.

IOGKF Australia has operated continuously since 1979 in many locations in Australia. See Dojo Locations for current dojos, senior instructors and training times. We teach traditional karate for self-defence and self-improvement and promote the values and principles of traditional Okinawan Goju-ryu karate. We strive to practise a high standard of training under senior Australian and visiting instructors to preserve and promote Okinawan Goju-ryu in Australia.

We always welcome new students to our dojos. Please browse our website to learn more about our style of karate and to find your nearest dojo.
