New Dojo join to AKF

We are happy to announce that we have new dojo member of Australian Kyokushin Federation  – KWF 

Warriors’ Fitness Club  is based in Craigieburn, Victoria (Full info here: www.warriorsfitnessclub.com.au)

A traditional martial art, Kyokushin Karate is a very powerful style and is great for both, fitness and self-defense. It was originally developed in Japan by the legendary Mas Oyama, and is now one of the most widespread styles, with clubs all over the world. 

Kyokushin students are well respected and have high levels of self-discipline. Discipline and self-improvement are the core elements of karate. Students learn not only how to defend themselves, but also build confidence and self-esteem from their training. Karate is taught to both adults and children, with separate classes for different age groups and competency levels, so classes can be more suitably tailored. 

At WFC, our Instructors are qualified and experienced martial artists competing and gaining titles both nationally and internationally. Whether your goal is to learn self-defense and get fit, improve your technique and fighting style or improve your sparring and fighting confidence, our trainers are well aware of the training requirements to get you where you want to be.

9-time karate champ Ava McCann is aiming for her black belt and one day the Olympics

9-time karate champ Ava McCann is aiming for her black belt and one day the Olympics

AVA McCann wanted to give up several times while facing adversity in her karate career,

but she never did and will go for her black belt grading in November 2016


“I will have to fight 20 fresh black belts in a row full contact with no protection. I’m not looking forward to that,” she said.

The self-confessed “computer nerd” is this week’s Junior Sports Star nominee. Last month Ava won her division in her first full contact bout, the Australian Kyokushin Karate Association’s 40th national titles. The 10-year-old also won a non-contact event at the tournament, taking her swag of national titles in various karate disciplines to eight. Ava said winning consecutive kata titles at the Arnold Classic Australia Kyokushin Karate Championships was another highlight for her. 

The Wenona student also has experience competing against boys who are bigger and older than her. Ava began karate when she was three to help with hip problems she had from birth.

“I didn’t start walking until I was three,” she said. “When I started karate I was the worst in the class. I couldn’t even run or jump.”

Ava trains at Trifu Dojo by Sydney Harbour. 
“I like how you can fight each other and still be good friends,” she said. “Karate means ‘open hand’. It’s not really about fighting; it’s about developing your character. “I like pushing myself to my limits and then pushing myself further than my limits!”

Ava said she was initially scared of being the only girl when she moved up a class at age six.
“I was the smallest and youngest in the class, but the boys were so nice to me and they used to pretend to be scared of me,” she said. “When it was their turn to punch me they would hardly touch me.  “When I started beating boys in tournaments, they used to cry but they don’t any more.”

Ava dreams of representing Australia at the highest level.
“Karate has just been announced as an Olympic sport for Tokyo in four years, so I would love to go to the Olympics,” she said. Ava is also a competitive skier and has won a state fencing title.
