Welcome to your Family Karate school website

Here you will find information on our programs, our locations and timetables.

Welcome to your Family Karate school website, you’ll find information on our programs, our locations and timetables.

Family Goju Karate-Do was founded in 2015 by Sensei Daniel Samuelsson and his two children, Dai-Sempai Ben and Sempai Emily.

As a family Dan, Ben and Em have been teaching since 2009. Sensei Dan has been running Family Goju Karate full time since 2015.

We have three main programs split by school age into Preprimary age and Primary age classes.

Our Adult program is for Young Adults of high school age and for Parents of children who train with us. As a general rule we do not accept adult students who do not already have a child training with us. This keeps the focus of your school on Family.

Your Karate Training Programs


Preprimary Age Karate Program

For focus, concentration, discipline and confidence.

Based on traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu taught by Gogen Yamaguchi and Chojun Miyagi your school’s Preprimary Karate program is specifically tailored to young children and teaches them focus, concentration and discipline to build confidence and resilience.

Teaching young children is a specialty of ours. We have put a lot of work into developing techniques to keep children engaged in class so they can get the most out of their time with us.

Here’s a short video of Sensei Dan giving an overview of how we keep your kids so engaged in class.

Primary School Age Karate Program

Focus, Concentration, Discipline and Confidence

Our program for 6 to 13 year olds helps them gain the confidence they need to face and overcome life’s challenges.

Based on traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu taught by Gogen Yamaguchi and Chojun Miyagi, our style of martial arts is specifically tailored to children and teaches them confidence, focus and discipline

Your Karate Program for kids has been developed to build Focus, Concentration and Discipline as well as build coordination, strength and self defence. The training program used has been developed from the Syllabus developed by Hanshi Gogen Yamaguchi with teaching methods created with the assistance of Physiotherapists, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists.

Here’s a short video Sensei Dan prepared for the Occupational Therapists at the Autism Association of Western Australia to show them the structure of our classes.

Testimonials

Tina Perada, Parent

Adult Karate Program

Your Adult Goju Ryu training program is strictly open to those aged 13-16 and Parents of the children who train with us. As a rule we do not accept Adult students who do not have a child enrolled with us.

We teach Okinawan Goju Ryu as taught by Sensei Gogen Yamaguchi. Our focus is on Kata, Bunkai and Self Defence with Kumite especially competition forms as a secondary element. Our Bunkai is pragmatic and practical with an emphasis on personal safety.

Within your school and it’s broader network we have the experience to create challenging yet achievable programs for everyone regardless of experience or ability.

Sometimes, parents will enrol their child in our school because they have always wanted to train Martial Arts or have trained in the past themselves. We encourage parents who do this to try classes themselves to see if our programs suite them and to understand the training their child in undertaking in greater detail.

Dan, Ben and Emily have trained together for many years in a number of clubs since Emily was four years old and Ben was seven. They particularly enjoy combined parent and child classes.

Ultimately, our goal is Kaizen or continual improvement.
