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.
Shihan Syed Mohiuddin, Founder and Chief Instructor in New Zealand have about three decades of experience of karate training. He sees karate not just as another sport but an essential art for people to learn this internationally recognised martial art in Auckland.
The life skills a student learns while learning self-defense are amazing. Self-discipline, being a great team player, confidence building, improved focus and concentration are to name a few.
We are a relatively young karate Dojo in Auckland, but have been recognised and work very closely with other Karate styles and clubs in New Zealand to give our students our best. Our affiliations with Karate New Zealand and New Zealand Martial Arts Institute make sure our students are not left behind in terms of tournaments participation, advance trainings and other opportunities as they come.
Currently running 5 branches, 16 sessions a week in Auckland (Mt Roskill, New Windsor, New Lynn and Blockhouse Bay) we are looking forward to expanding Budokan Karate in other parts of the North Island very soon.
Support from our members has been appreciated from day one.
