Roxby Downs boasts one of the biggest and most successful karate clubs in Australia. 

The club has been around since the early 1980s and now has about 60 active members.

“We cater for all levels of karate,” said Shotokan Karate Club Roxby Downs sensei Bill Natt.

“One of our aims is to compete in the national competitions, and in the last few years we have made up most of the South Australian representatives and performed well at the national competitions for kumite (sparring) and kata (choreographed movements).”

Natt said karate was an all-inclusive sport that encompassed the mind, body and spirit, and each person that participated in the class got something different out of it.

“For kids, it is great for mental and physical development, encourages discipline and improves self-esteem,” he said.
“Amongst other things, for adults it helps with flexibility, posture and provides a big mental challenge.

“It really can provide guiding principles for your life – including respect, discipline and refraining from violent behavior.”
The local karate club is a part of Shotokan Karate International – one of the major karate associations in the world – after joining in the mid-1990s.

Classes are held at the Roxby Downs Area School Hall on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6.30pm to 7.15pm and 7.15pm to 8.30pm respectively.
