Enso Martial Arts will not only teach you how to protect yourself and build a strong, fit body, but help you grow into a better more confident person.

Our Teen and Adult Karate is a specialised class open to teens and adults who want to learn effective, proven and easy to implement skills to protect yourself and others from random acts of violence all whilst learning the Respect, Confidence, Self-Discipline, stress management, goal-setting and importantly the values of a Traditional Japanese Martial Art. 

Life is changing, the coward's punch, gangs and drug addicts that literally feel no pain are now common place. As as former Army and Police officer; Chief Instructor Shihan Craig has had to deal with victims of these crimes and defend himself against perpetrators of these crimes. He knows full well what does and what does not work in a real life situation. The question is, do you?  

Any technique which brings success is good. A good and effective technique will be integrated into our system regardless of the style from were it originated. Kyokushin Budokai is a Full Contact all round fighting system. Above all, it is a 'street effective' Martial Art of the highest possible reality. Only when one masters all zones of unarmed martial arts, that is striking, throwing, and grappling equally, can one claim to be trained in a system of self defence based on the highest possible reality.

????Shihan Craig Wilson is the real deal! He holds multiple Black Belts from Kyokushin to Kenpo. He is government accredited and brings to students real world experience after having served over 20 years in the NSW Police Force and with the Australian Army.

????ENSO have great instructors that focus on “real” life defence techniques. My kids really love attending Craig and Brooke’s classes because they make them fun even though it’s disciplined. They have a great friendly family focused environment and are dedicated in helping you achieve your goals. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. 5 stars.
