About us:


Our Dojo of Champions Karate School Started in Mornington in 2004, and in that time has grown to be a successful and professional karate school, well respected on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Mornington dojo through its philosophy has proved itself time and time again, producing some of the country’s finest athletes and outstanding Black Belts.  They are men, women and children, just like you who are looking for more than just a workout in their spare time.

They are individuals with poise, self confidence and character. Starting out at only 3 years of age, the Mini Mite program is the perfect way for any child to kick start their Kinder years learning life skills such as parents phone numbers and their full names and addresses. The class is well structured to this age group with focus on co-operation.

Children then move into 4/5 years of age (Little Ninjas) where they start to develop even further with skills of understanding 000 calls, stranger danger, water safety, and anti bullying being the main focus while also developing good listening skills and coordination ready to take to school.

Kids classes start at 6 years to 12 years.  It’s at this stage we work very hard on developing a strong foundation of basic techniques, a good understanding of karate, and of course the correct way to use it, whether it’s a self defence situation or in competition. Our Teen /Adult classes are great for a combination of all Karate values incorporating fitness and most of our mature age students are in fact parents who just want to be active with their children.

Mornington Karate is very active in sports karate having students currently on the Victorian Team and Australian Team.  We offer many tournaments throughout the year to attend if you are interested in competition.  We also offer the very popular Annual camp for all to attend with international guest instructors every year.

  • Effective Self Defence
