"Samurai Karate Laverton has been amazing with my 9 yr old son who has ADHD and he has been training there for about 3 years now, he absolutely loves it and asks everyday if it’s karate day haha. I have seen how confident and how much strength he has gained since he has been training, the sensei are amazing and easy to talk to about his progress and I love how they run their classes. I’m so glad I made this choice to sign him up (he saw the ad somewhere and wanted to join) it has benefited him so much and I really thank this dojo for making it enjoyable for him to want to go back every week."Sarah Gemmell
"We put our son in Karate at the Laverton dojo when he started Prep. We were looking for a sport that had a focus on discipline as well at fitness. This Dojo had great reviews and was conveniently located. 3 years later we are so happy with our decision. We love that it is a family run dojo who take great care and pride in both the quality of the classes and the environment. All the Sensei and team are so wonderful with the kids. When our son was having trouble at school his Sensei took time out to sit and speak to him after classes and offer him words of advice. There is a warmth and kindness from the staff that is accompanied by a real focus on discipline. The kids are told very clearly when they are not doing the right thing or are being disrespectful. I think this is great. It’s giving them training for the real world and what is expected of them. I’ve also made a number of very good friends in some of the other parents while we used to sit around and wait during classes (pre-Covid). There is a real kinship amongst the parents/carers. Everyone is very down to earth, genuine. I can’t recommend this Dojo enough."Sarah, Altona Meadows
"Samurai Karate Laverton is a wonderful family friendly dojo. Our two sons have been attending the club since 2017 and the teachers/sensi are nothing short of exceptional. They are genuinely there to support, encourage and guide your child through their learning experience and offer discipled teaching in a friendly and supportive manner. The communication, organisation and adaptability of SKL is to be commended and we highly encourage anyone else seeking a karate school for their child to consider Samurai Karate Laverton."Natalie & Maxwell Mitchell parents of Roman & Harvey
