About the South Burnett Karate Association

The South Burnett Karate Association Inc. was formed to benefit its members who participate in Martial Arts within the South Burnett Region. We are a non-political, non-bias committee who’s only interest is to support its members, promote goodwill and fair play in the martial arts arena, offer a competition circuit for local Martial Art Schools/Clubs and promote health, fitness and happiness for all. Our objectives are as follows:

  1. Providing a unique curriculum for children and parents to support reinforcement of traditional family values, such as discipline and respect, which are important in every child’s educations and upbringing.
  2. To promote an “it’s more than exercise, it’s a way of life” outlook through health, fitness, mind-set improving physical, emotional and mental health through schools and the community abroad.
  3. To assist with funding for karate practitioners who wish to train and/or compete intrastate, interstate and overseas. Funding would assist in the areas of travel, entry fees, accommodation, and meal expenses.
  4. To provide equipment and a safe training environment for students of karate who wish to expand their skills.
  5. To assist in the promotion of goodwill, values and benefits of karate for people in the South Burnett looking for physical and mental development of all ages.
