Wellington Region Karate Academy (WRKA)

The Wellington Region Karate Academy (WRKA) is a non-profit karate club that helps the community by developing people's confidence, awareness, self-belief and motivation. Their Dojo is located in the Life City Church complex off the first roundabout in Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt, New Zealand.

The WRKA offer disciplined, age-appropriate traditional karate training for all ages, shapes and sizes. Their training improves physical strength, fitness, endurance, reactions, accuracy and flexibility. Classes are challenging and fun! They teach kihon (fundamental karate techniques), kata (patterns), kumite (low-contact sparring), and advanced self defence tactics for seniors. And the occasional game for the kids…

But Karate is not just a physical activity. They help students become more aware, and unlock the power of confidence, motivation and self-belief. These lessons can be applied to improve all aspects of your life.

The WRKA teach GoSoku Ryu (Hard-Fast Style), with a unique combination of Shotokan and Goju influences. Students also learn the history of karate, and to progress they must understand "why" as well as "how".
