Nate had a ball today at his party and I think Sensei Rod had just as much fun as the kids.

Hi Rod, I wanted to thank you and recommend your karate school to any potential parents and students. Having done some “comparison shopping” and also having previously had the experience of “buying a lemon” that ended in tears because my two children were scared of the person dressed in black that yelled and screamed out instructions as if it was a military bootcamp, you and your fellow instructors approach of humour with gentle but firm encouragement and focus on the basics is really bringing positive results. My kids have developed physically, socially and personally through their experiences. The most important thing of course is that they really enjoy it and always count the number of sleeps until it is karate day. Many Thanks

Dear Sensei Rod, I just wanted to say how much I have appreciated your karate classes for my 5 year old son Tristan. As you know, he has always been one of those kids with lots of energy and has often had difficulty sitting still, was easily distracted and he found it hard to concentrate for periods of time. After looking around at several clubs, we enrolled him with International Goju Karate Schools, attracted by the non - contact aspect and the wonderful skills of your instructors. I really like the way you impart empathy, discipline, focus and life skills. I was immensely proud of Tristan last week when he received an honour certificate at school for much improved behaviour and I feel your karate lessons are a key element in this improvement. Thanks

My husband and I joined International Goju Karate Schools about 5 months ago. We were both looking for a fun way to keep fit and meet new people. After a not so friendly experience at another club, we decided to give IGKS a go; what we found was the perfect balance between serious instruction and the “fun” aspects of learning karate.

Sensei Rod Darling and the other instructors are dedicated, caring people who help you to achieve your goals and to build your confidence. They know how to maintain the balance between serious instruction and fun. At IGKS balance, coordination, concentration, self discipline and self confidence are a few of the benefits you will gain through regular training. But importantly, you will also build strong friendships. There is a sense of camaraderie at IGKS that I have not experienced in other club settings.

I would unreservedly recommend Rod Darling as an instructor. He is an exemplary, committed and dedicated teacher, whose positive attitude and friendly approach makes him a pleasure to be around. I would recommend International Goju Karate Schools to anyone of any age.
