I have trained at Kimekai for well over a 15 years and in all this time I have always loved training here. It is like a second home. I really miss it when I have been away. The skill of the instructors is excellent, they always have a way to help make what looks difficult, easy to do. The training sessions are always enjoyable and a good workout. I have learned so much over the years, I like that no matter how long I have been coming to Kimekai, there is always something new to learn, something to improve on, it is always interesting. Thank you all

My son and daughter attended the club for over 10 years. Fantastic club with inspirational leadership. A great way to upskill your kids and provide them with many life lessons. A real confidence building sport with a strong mindfulness reference. Both traditional karate, some MMA, kick boxing and weapons classes, they progressed into leadership roles that have positive influence on their studies and social enjoyment. I cant recommend the club enough. With a long history of students reaching state and national levels, the kids and adults will have many opportunities at all levels competition or if they prefer, simply enjoy the classes and social interactions. A great place for all kids and adults.

My son has been going since four. He graded black belt thunderbolts and now is a young samurai.
The support, self discovery, opportunities and learnings he has gained from the HIghett team and this sport is the best. With more enthusiasm and focus for karate my son still wants to attend 🙏🏼 and counts down to every opportunity to improve and to then grade. ( now only seven) I am so glad he loves this sport and recommend Kimekai without hesitation. They really know how to take your child on a journey.

My two boys have been going to Kimekai for over 11 years collectively and have loved it. The instructors are all amazing and the skills learnt will last a lifetime. Sensei Marco runs a very confident and professional dojo and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

We joined the Kimekai family at Highett approximately 4 years ago and have been delighted every step of the way. The care, attention and guidance provided to our son and his ongoing development has been faultless and inspiring. A great team, doing great things!
