Senior Instructor – Sempai Tracey

When my son started training at IGKS I joined in with the adults classes. Shortly after, I volunteered to assist. In mid-2012, Sempai Taia approached me with a proposal to assist with the running of the Maddington Dojo when she was away to give birth to her child. Without thinking twice I accepted. With all the support by the other Sempai’s I enjoyed the experience. I am now one of the senior instructors and helps in coaching all grades of students.


I take pleasure in seeing students of all ages flourish in their abilities. Learning karate can be a benefit anyone of any age, fitness level and ability. Karate can enhance confidence, improved personal safety and flexibility of mind and body. Karate teaches diligence, respect, awareness of others and perseverance. Maddington Dojo gives it’s students the opportunity to be a part of a motivated and dedicated team that teaches traditional karate skills with the mix of modern fitness training techniques.

Having done some “comparison shopping” and also previously had the experience of “buying a lemon” that ended in tears because my 2 children were scared of the person dressed in black that yelled and screamed out instructions as if it was a military bootcamp, you and your fellow instructors did otherwise. You’re approach in teaching karate is with humour, gentle but with firm encouragement and emphasizing on the basics is really bringing evident positive results. My children have developed Physically, personally and socially through their experiences. The important thing of course is that they enjoy it and always count the number of sleeps until it’s karate day. I want to thank you and recommend your Karate school to any potential parents and students.

My 5 year old son Tristan as you know has always been one of those kids with lots of energy and often had difficulty sitting still, he is also easily disctracted and he found it hard to concentrate for periods of time. After searching and searching at seversal clubs, we enrolled him with IGKS attracted by the non – contact aspect and the wonderful skills of your instructors. I really like the way you impart discipline, empathy, focus and life skills. I was very proud of Tristan last week when he received an honour certificate at school for much improved behaviour and I feel your karate lessons are a key element in this improvement. I appreciate your karate class and I just want to thank you so much for the improvement of my son.

My family has been involve with IGKS since year 2005. My son and daughter started at a very young age (5 & 9) and through the patience and encouragement of Rod, they’ve improved their confidence to deal with issues outside to the karate dojo. My daughter is now an assistant and is also teaching younger students.

I would definitely recommend IGKS to anybody considering martial arts for their family. Be on the look out for the martial arts clubs and limited outcomes they offer.
