The greatest gift given to my girls from training with Kassis Karate has been the exceptional mentoring and encouragement that has lead to an enormous sense of worth that I hope they will carry for life.
My daughter, Isabella absolutely loves her karate classes at the academy. We looked at a few classes on offer around our neighborhood but found that Kassis is the best. We find the classes more structured, friendly and fun for her.
For us as parents Kassis Karate ticks a lot of boxes: each week our kids learn self-defence, manners, respect, discipline. The Senseis get the best out of the kids, and we have found them very approachable. Our kids love it! We often catch them practicing at home amongst themselves!

Two years ago Dimitri started as a Little Samurai having fun mixing with other kids. Now he's a cadet belt with much more focus and discipline. Dimitri loves the environment at Kassis Karate. He keeps reminding us that 'a black belt is a white belt that never gave up'. We couldn't be happier. We even did the Japan karate tour and loved it.

As parents we are so happy that we found Kassis Academy. It’s just the dojo to be. Our son Nicholas has become more confident, disciplined and has had a great opportunity to meet new friends.
Respect, responsibility, attitude are all keys to success - this is what it’s all about at this academy. Fantastic people Sensei Con and Rosanna Kassis.

My youngest son has had the privilege to train with both Sensei Con and Sensei Rosanna for approximately 6 months. As a father, I have been impressed with the overall balanced and nurturing nature of the Karate classes, never too forceful nor difficult and never too soft nor weak, while at all times promoting a safe training environment for the kids.
I am pleased to see my son growing in both confidence and fitness, as a result of which, he now regularly participates in school sporting clubs. My son always looks forward to his next karate class.”
When I started karate I was unsure where I'd be and today I am closer to my black belt all thanks to Sensei Con and Rosanna. They have improved my self-confidence and I'm also proud of my 2 children Steven and Clares' achievements who are both black belts. It would not have been possible if it weren't for the dedicated instructors.

After watching my son’s classes and witnessing the patience and kindness of the Senseis, I felt that perhaps I could do it too. I am so glad I found Kassis Karate Academy as it has given me a calmer mind, fitness, more self-confidence, great new friends, and the sense of belonging. What I also like is its emphasis on the 'why' as well as the 'how'. We also learn about the history/philosophy of karate, not just the techniques.

I have been at Kassis Karate Academy for about four and half years. I signed up when I was 58 and have found the experience challenging, rewarding, and stimulating, from both a mental and physical perspective. My son was a prime motivator and we train together. The founders of the Academy do a wonderful job in catering for the various needs of students. From a holistic health point of view my sense of wellbeing has improved and with the help of the ‘sensei’s’ I have gained a more thorough knowledge of the spiritual significance of karate as a way of life.
I reintroduced my children to karate after a two year break. We were previously part of another organisation, and it was challenging to convince them to try again. After meeting Roseanna at the initial session, they were easily convinced. It has been nearly 18 months now since joining and it has been an inspirational journey. The principal Con Kassis is a fantastic mentor for my children, in particular my son Jesse. I have seen Jesse's confidence improve at school. I am so proud of what my children have achieved with Kassis Karate. Thank you Kassis for your outstanding service.
We have three boys attending Kassis Karate Academy. Each has benefitted in their own way, be it the calming and focus on an energetic young mind or the increase in confidence from a shy child. As a parent we are reassured by the fact that our boys understand how to defend themselves.
We would not hesitate to recommend this as an enjoyable and valuable sport.

I used to think karate is only suitable for kids and young people until I see senior people, some older than me, competing in tournaments. I thought, this is something I could do to improve my fitness and strength. After the introductory lesson, both my husband and I were totally convinced and became members. The training sessions are structured and fun; and we train with people of similar age in a respectful, encouraging environment. Training is not just fitness for us, it is our socializing time with like-minded people, focusing on ourselves and our well-being. The enthusiasm and passion for karate of our trainers, Sensei Con and Sensei Rosanna, are very contagious and we always look forward to our training sessions every week.
Give yourself or your child the opportunity to learn self defense, to build courage, confidence, strength, speed, co-ordination and mental awareness.
The ultimate aim of Karate is the perfection of one’s charater through committed training and the strict disciplining of the mind and body.
Karate practice will help you in all aspects of life.
