LEARN GOSHIN KHAN KARATE WITH

HANSHI DEENA NAIDUI

Hanshi Deena Naidu is one of the leading exponents of traditional karate-do both here in Australia and abroad. He has
a strong stance for the promotion and retention of this long-established art. It is his opinion, like most karate-ka from the old school of thinking, that through the practice of tradition, good values and virtues are retained. The importance of this he says, it invariably builds up a better society of Budo-ka thereby contributing to an improved community.

ABOUT US

Goshin Kan’s home dojos are based in Sydney, Australia but the teaching is provided worldwide via online learning. Unlike many other styles, the founder and head teacher, Hanshi Deena Naidu, is actively involved in teaching in person and online – and to all levels of students. He believes that anyone who wants to learn the art of Goshin Kan traditional karate should be able to do so – regardless of their location or situation and at minimal cost.

Students will learn the art of traditional self defence to better protect themselves as well increasing their confidence and fitness, reducing their ego, developing character, and becoming more self disciplined. By understanding and practising Goshin Kan’s human values of truth, love, peace, right action and non-violence, students are on the right path to live happy and fulfilled lives, and be positive members of their families, communities and society at large.

Being part of Goshin Kan means students will also learn the difference between karate and karate-do. Karate is the physical movement training. Karate-do is the true Empty Hand Way involving the teaching of physical defence, mental discipline and spiritual knowledge. Once a student understands this, they are on their way to understand things far greater than just punching, kicking and blocking. This is what Gogen Yamaguchi Sensei taught Hanshi Deena Naidu. And this is what Hanshi is inviting you to learn.

The aspirations of a true karateka are the same as those seeking the spiritual path; and that is to find truth. However, for the martial artist, mastering physical techniques leads one to control the ever-active mind which in turn makes one spiritually aware. All three are necessary; the physical, the mental and the spiritual. Without any one of these, it is not martial arts.

ABOUT GOSHIN KAN KARATE

Founder and Head Teacher

Hanshi Deena Naidu is a direct student of Gogen Yamaguchi Sensei. He was the 6th person in the world to graduate from the Japan karate-do Goju-kai college in 1976 with a Japanese government recognised certification.
Hanshi teaches at Goshin Kan dojos in Sydney Australia, and travels to India, South Africa, Botswana and Kenya to meet and teach his teachers and students there, guiding them inbetween visits with personal, tailored online tuition.
As the number of karate practitioners in many other countries reaching out to Hanshi for information has steadily increased, he has established this website to make his knowledge more accessible to students and teachers of all levels, wherever in the world they may be.

‘There seems to something missing in karate these days – and that is the human development of character. I see karate as a tool to refine the person. I have been teaching human values to my students for over 40 years and have stuck to the path of traditional karate. There are many organisations who do not see it this way and make karate look cheap and meaningless. Much of their teaching is based on development of a student’s ego by trying to create champions and teaching only the students who can perform well. I see every student as a champion, acknowledging the fact that they participate with effort. One thing I have learnt – it’s not the system that you practice that makes you a good karateka, it is the quality of the teacher who guides you.’

This is something I enjoy and will continue doing. It is an activity that I have done the longest. Normally I lose interest very quickly. It is always good to do something that you enjoy and Goshin kan karate has always new things to teach you and makes the training enjoyable. It is also good for defence and it helps me with my attitude. I can handle most situations better than before and I do not stress as I did in the past. I feel I am in control of myself and my emotions. One thing is that I understand that karate is much more than only self defence. It helps my personality to improve. Even at home I do not get stressed as much. I have a greater respect for my parents and elderly people. I recommend everybody with a disability, especially those with a mental and emotional disability to attend Goshin kan karate if they want to make a difference to their lives. Goshin kan has changed my life, my character and helped me to be more confident even in dangerous situations. The values I learn from Goshin kan karate are amazing lessons as it puts everything into perspective. I will give you an example one of the values, it is called Right conduct. This value helps us understand, I now know that we all have life duties. So I understand that I have duties as a human being and that I must do my best to follow those duties.
