  • Wanted to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for Shihan Shah and this haven of Martial Arts learning in the Inner West. Like others who have also previously commented, I tried several different martial styles and Dojo's before I found the right fit for me too. Once I did my first introductory Kyokushin classes, was convinced I need look no further. Studying Karate has helped me achieve many different personal goals and work on my self discipline and development in many, many ways - have improved my self defense skills, obtained much better mental and physical clarity, lost a bunch of weight I didn't need (30kg and counting!), made new friends and had a lot of fun, while learning seriously at the same time. Deeply grateful to Shihan and all our Senpai at the Dojo / fellow students for the incredible community of this organisation. Looking forward to continuing to practice and dedicate myself to Kyokushin for the rest of my life. I'd really encourage anyone who might be wondering to contact the Dojo for the couple of free trial classes and see what you think of it. OSU! and thank you so much again Shihan, it's a great blessing to be your student.
  • Kuro Obi Martial Arts is an amazing dojo. My daughter has learnt so much technically and personally under the caring and passionate tutelage of Shah. His dedication to his craft and genuine care of the children is undeniable. Highly recommended!
  • Fantastic environment for practising martial arts in the Inner West, the instructors are so dedicated and excellent at adjusting their skills to their audience (I'm referring to the kids classes). I was amazed at the ability of the teacher to communicate to young children the importance of all sorts of important values key to the art of Karate and just as essential for becoming a well-rounded individual. Highly recommend the place for all ages!
  • Fun and safe. Challenging for all ages and dispositions. Such a huge benefit for my son’s motor skills, confidence and happiness.
  • This is definitely the best dojo I’ve been to, and I’m loving the sessions here. I’ve had to try a few different places to find the right one for me, and happy to say that the instructors here are very professional as well as friendly and super encouraging. Can’t wait to see where it takes me.
