What if your Child ACTUALLY WANTED to be more Fit, Confident and Disciplined?
Toyakan Higashi Karate Club at Helensvale on the Gold Coast is the largest traditional Japanese Karate School in Australia and boasts two highly qualified instructors: owner, Paul Butterfield and his son, Lewis Butterfield.
Paul Butterfield has been involved in martial arts for over thirty-eight years and has been teaching children Karate for a large portion of that time.

Motivation through a desire to achieve more than seems possible
Focus through goal setting, discipline and motivation
Our professional instructors use Paul's simple, effective 3 Step Success System in high-energy, engaging martial arts classes to instil these essential life skills.

adults, benefit from the ability to defend emotionally against the challenges faced every day
in the schoolyard, at work and in social situations
Step 3 Self Confidence - we're here to encourage our students to learn new things because
we know that learning new skills or feeling challenged to go beyond comfort zones will
