Fun, Structured, Outcome Based Karate Classes For Your Children, That Teaches Them Confidence, Respect and Discipline

 Who we are...

Hi, there I'm Gerhard Sauerman. Owner, founder and chief instructor since 1996.

I started my karate journey at age 6 in year one many year ago.

In 1996 I started my Karate school Sauerman Karate with about 60 new members on the first night. Over the years lot's of mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters trained with us, learning new skills and making new friends.
After moving my family to the Gold Coast in 2010, I also moved the Karate school here. From 2010 till 2016, I ran some evening classes in the are. Then in 2016, Varsity College gave us the opportunity to be part of the school's after-hours programme.

No time to take the kids to after school activities?

Looking for an age-old proven activity that kids of all ages and abilities can participate in and shine?

Well, look no further because we've got just what you are looking for.

We offer simple yet effective and engaging sessions that are not only convenient for parents and students but also Fun, Structured and Outcome Based.

Responsibility and Disc

Our son is really enjoying the lessons and we can see he is getting a lot out of it. He warms up at home before the lessons, does some extra training in front of the tv watching a training video, and has learnt responsibilty of looking after his gi and even simple things like the discipline of making his bed every morning! He loves getting the coloured tags showing his progress. They are a great idea to keep the motivation going. He is nervously excited about his first grading test later in the year. Thank you so much!

So when and where are the sessions held do you ask?

Our sessions are held at Varsity College Junior School inside the JLC building. We are there Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 3:00 pm and all students are allowed to attend any or all of these sessions. So come one day a week or all it doesn't matter you decide.

The beginner session will run till 3:30 pm. When students grade to new ranks they will attend the intermediate session as well which finishes at 4:00 pm but you will be advised of this change when the time comes.

We also have an advanced session which finishes at 4:30 pm. Students will thus not be kept later than this if they are in this session.

So, in short, you can train 2 days a week. There are 3 sessions per day (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced) that runs between 3:00 - 4:30 pm.
