About Us

The Way Of The Free Spirit

Since 1978 we have operated in and around Melbourne producing some of the finest world class Black Belts and Champions in the country.

Shindo Karate (the way of the free spirit) was born from a desire to teach quality karate in a stimulating and friendly environment suited to young children up to adults of all ages.

Shindo Karate is based on the traditional Shotokan (松濤館流) style, while maintaining karate’s traditional values and techniques as it was passed on by Sensei Masatoshi Nakayama (10th Dan) it has evolved using modern teaching and training methods. 

Our Programs

Our programs are age specific and have been carefully structured to ensure students are delivered the right lesson at the right time. Classes are energetic and exciting with a training style that is fun, exciting, empowering and educational from as young as 4 years old to 50+ years young.


A heavy emphasis is placed on friendship within the club. All the instructors are very close friends and many long term friendships have been formed among students.

Australian Karate Federation

Shindo is a member of the Australian Karate Federation, which is recognised by the government as being the governing body of karate in Australia. As such students have the opportunity to represent their state and country in the official Victorian and Australian karate teams.

Qualified & Accredited

All instructors are fully government accredited and insured.

“A black belt is just a white
belt who never quit.”
