What if your Child ACTUALLY WANTED to be more Fit, Confident and Disciplined?

Dear Parents,

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. He knows karate is a discipline that will continue to benefit to children outside the martial arts Dojo and has spent years honing his classes to focus on:

  • Confidence through learning new skills and understanding how to cope with different situations
  • Discipline through taking pride in obeying rules, acting responsibly and achieving one's goals
  • 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.
