Auckland Central Branch

Auckland Central Branch was founded in 1973 by students from Kyoto University, Japan. It has operated continuously in the CBD since 1973 and has recently relocated to Auckland Girls Grammar School’s Lower Gym.
Since 2001 Steve Young (4th Dan) has been the branch master and we are fortunate to have four other 4th Dan black belts who assist with teaching in the club.

We welcome beginners and have a depth of knowledge in our club to assist new members. We have many students from Japan and all over the world who have enjoyed the opportunity to learn self defence in a supportive, non-competitive, friendly and sociable environment.
