Welcome to our school. Richmond Dojo was established by Sensei Con Sklavounos in 1983 who continues today to teach and develop students of all ages.
Our schools, Richmond and Coburg Dojos boast a high standard of karate and competition success. Our dedication is to the development of our students through hard training and focus on an excellent standard.
Join us, and come along to try our classes.
Mondays and Thursdays
5 pm - 6 pm Junior & 6 pm - 8 pm Senior
Monday to Friday 5 pm - 7 pm Junior & 7 pm to 9 pm Senior
Saturdays - special training including squad training
Our focus and hard work in development of correct technique; long low stances; strength, posture and knowledge, through constant practice is of paramount importance to us.
This high standard is evident in the three components of karate training demonstrated by our students in Kihon (basics), Kata (forms) & Kumite (fighting) and the continual success at competition.
FIGHTING & SELF DEFENCE
Students build and develop skills through set fighting sequences. Developing set attack & defence routines to improve accuracy; hand-eye co-ordination; power; and speed.
This development of set fighting leads onto set free fighting routines which then progress to free fighting including, self defence and competition karate.
Conditioning and strength is an integral part of our training as it supports the high standard of karate practised at our school.
More importantly, conditioning and fitness training helps our students lead fit and healthy lives with strong minds and bodies.
Teaching Traditional Karate in Richmond (Vic) since 1983
The Richmond Dojo was established by Sensei Con Sklavounos who has practised and taught karate from a very young age and continues his dedication and love for the sport today.
Our school is not a business, hence our long lasting presence in Richmond. We intentionally keep student numbers low focusing on student development and excellence unlike other schools who compromise quality for numbers to maintain their business.
We are passionate about the art of karate and passing on our knowledge to loyal students who want to work hard.
We take great satisfaction and pride in our student's achievements.
