Intro to Lion Budokan Karate International​

Lion Budokan Karate International started its first Branch in Auckland in May 2013 with a handful of students. Our vision is to promote Karate as an essential sport for people of all ages and fitness levels.

The life skills a student learns while learning self-defence are amazing. Self-discipline, being a great team player, confidence building, improved focus and concentration are to name a few.

Since 2013


We are one of the fastest-growing Karate clubs in Auckland. Started in 2013 with a handful of members, we now offer thirteen sessions(karate lessons) per week to members of different age groups and fitness levels across four branches in Auckland.

Our training methods consist of a mix of traditional karate and modern self-defence techniques. We believe Karate is a complete system of life that requires work on body and mind equally. Join us now and become a part of the comprehensive system of Martial Arts training.

Great place to learn, my daughter is learning a great skill which I think is necessary in today’s world where you should know about self defense.

I have been to many karate dojos before but this dojo has got to be the best by far. The reason for why I say that is because their number one priority is to help you not only increase your karate skills but also help you improve with your morals and way of life.

My son absolutely loves his Karate class, he loves the teachers and has grown so much in his balance, kicks and technique in only a few months. I'd highly recommend for anyone interested to give it a go.

Best karate dojo. Well managed and organised. Kids always having fun in the class. Senpai Sebastia, Senpai Richard, Senpai Taufil and Shihan Syed makes great effort to keep all the kids engaged in class.

Awesome club! Great community spirit, multicultural and all ages! The club contributes greatly to the youth by nurturing them via the Dojo, the spirit of Karate teaching self defense and discipline. A reason to engage with people in a safe outdoor environment which is much needed these days!!! Thumbs up really to Renshi Syed, Sempai’s Sebastian & Richard, the engine Hafsa as well as the team at LBKI!!!
