Auckland University

Club Location

Training is split between The Hawk’s Nest (Floor 2, 492 Queen Street) and the Science Building of The University of Auckland (UoA) located near the middle of downtown Auckland (Symonds Street). On campus training is in Building 303-G15. The details of times are below.

Note that occasionally we train somewhere else so it pays to check with us to ensure before coming along to a session.

Anyone interested in finding out about what Goju-Ryu Karate is about is encouraged to attend a training session without charge. If you are coming to campus specifically to train, you should check with us that we are training in the usual place on the day you plan to come. You may watch or (much preferred!) join in. Introduce yourself to any of the members, and he or she will direct you to the session instructor. Wear comfortable (light and loose-fitting) clothing, but no shoes or socks.

Members may use the changing room facilities at The Hawk’s Nest or the bathrooms near or in Building 303.
