Welcome to Ben Mettam's Northern Districts Karate located in Perth Western Australia. We provide Karate lessons in the Northern Suburbs and this includes the Duncraig, North Beach and Carramar dojo.
We all recognise the need to keep fit and feel good about ourselves. You may have paid out money for gym memberships that haven’t been used. Karate is different because it’s dynamic, fun and interesting. It's easy to measure your progress and there is always something new to learn.
Perhaps you have always wanted to learn Karate, to learn to defend yourself, increase your self-discipline or self-confidence, or even just participate in a fun and stimulating activity with others. Our members have the benefit of regular seminars conducted by leading Martial Arts exponents from Australia, Japan and Europe.
Brian Mackie and his Karate Academy are icons of authentic Karate in Western Australia. The Academy has been operating for over 40 years and has remained at the same city location since its establishment in 1966. Brian is a foundation member of the Australian Karate Federation W.A. Inc. which is the only government recognised body for karate in Australia, as well as the International Karate-do Goju Kai Association, founded by the legendary Gogen Yamaguchi.
Brian Mackie's Karate Academy of Japan has 11 additional locations in Western Australia. To view these locations please click here.
Duncraig and North Beach branch instructor, Ben Mettam, has been a student of Brian’s for over 20 years. A 5th dan black belt, Ben is a government accredited instructor who is experienced in conducting relevant and stimulating classes. You can have fun training with other like-minded people progressing at your own pace, on your way to becoming an internationally recognised Black Belt.
There is only one choice... I.K.G.A Karate!
Contact Ben Mettam today and take the first step in becoming a stronger, happier and healthier individual.
