I have trained with Sensei Ben on multiple occasions, and each time he has shown to be a proficient practitioner and competent instructor. I encourage anyone in the area to consider his dojo. Context: I am not a student, but another martial arts school owner.

Exceptional Karate Dojo Transforming Lives! We've been part of Goshukan Karate Academy for nearly a year now, and the positive impact it has had on my daughter's life is truly remarkable. Sensei Ben is not just an expert in karate but also an outstanding mentor who exudes professionalism in every aspect. Under his guidance, my daughter has not only honed her physical strength and self-defence skills but has also experienced a significant boost in confidence. The supportive and nurturing environment of the dojo has played a pivotal role in shaping her personality positively and it stands out as the only after-school activity that has made such a profound difference for us (and we've tried many!). Our heartfelt gratitude to the entire team for creating a space where personal growth is not just encouraged but celebrated. This dojo truly deserves its spot among the best, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a transformative and enriching martial arts journey.

This dojo inspires, and is committed to students moving forward, regardless of where they are in their karate journey. The emphasis is on understanding what you’re doing and why; integrating your mind and body.

Led by a very knowledgeable instructor in a family friendly environment of learning that doesn't compromise on the rigour or the finer points of the Go-Ju ryue karate-do. I am an adult with some prior exposure to the art. I joined the do-jo for health reasons along with my desire to advance in the art. Beginner classes have a diverse student body ranging from white belts to a couple of black belts enabling me to advance at my phase without having a shortage of support such as sparing partners. I recommend without reservations.

After two years with no training, I came to Goshukan Karate Academy Canberra as almost a beginner again. It has been a wonderful experience to renew training and to have the help provided by Sensei Ben to overcome the differences from the style I trained in for the past 20 years. The support and camaraderie has been fantastic, and while the differences present a major challenge, I know I am making headway thanks to Sensei Ben and the Canberra team. Thank you for allowing me to train with with.

GOSHUKA Karate Academy is one of the best in Canberra. Sensai Ben and his team teach you with a very high standard. If you a beginner or on black belt they respect you all the same and the students leave with more and more confidence after each class. I highly recommend them.
