Shihan Andrew is assisted by a team of high quality senior black belts including his son Sensei Stefan Roubas who also has over 20 years experience in the martial arts. Shihan Andrew Roubas believes the standard of any dojo is directly influenced by the quality of it’s senior black belts.

Roubas GoJu-Ryu Karate-Do Academy, Our style of martial arts is Goju-Ryu Karate, a traditional Japanese martial art aimed to promote the development of character through the perfection of mind, body & spirit. Karate training emphasises physical fitness, self defense, body conditioning and improvement in mental attitude ultimately becoming a way of life.

Our academy emphasises student self development and individual progress through rigorous training in Kihon (basic movements), Kata (patterns), Kumite (partner work & sparring), and Kobudo (weapon training). Karate-Do is an individual activity where students perform at their own level, yet the class operates as a group, with each member working not only to improve him or herself, but to assist the other members improve as well. This environment stimulates a healthy camaraderie and unity among its members.
