Sensei Tom's dedication and commitment to every child in his class is admirable.  The kids love and respect him, as he does them.  It is clear that he sees Martial Arts as more than just a sport- a way of connecting with kids and teaching them the fundamental skills for life.  The kids have so much fun in every class but little do they realise how much they are learning from those 'warm up/ cool down' games and other fun activities.  I would not hesitate to recommend Shuzoku Martial Arts to anyone who want their children or themselves to join Karate.- Jacinta Parkinson


Sensei Tom and Narelle have established a brilliant and enjoyable Dojo for all kids and families to take part in.  Sensei Tom and the team at Shuzoku have given our son a chance like all the other children.  I would like to thank them for taking the time in giving him this opportunity.- Gaby and Anthos Myrianthous


I would like to thank you for your belief in me; as you remember when I first contacted you I was a little hesitant due to my age and my fitness level as I thought Karate was only for young or fit people.  It has been approximatey 6 months since I have started training with you and at 52yo I am now feeling the healthiest I have been since my early twenties.- David Nugent


Karate is not always about the art of martial arts itself. Not only has it taught me karate, it has also taught me discipline, commitment and respect not only for others, but also myself. Since starting to train under Sensei Tom I have lost almost 45kgs and dropped 4 dress sizes. I am the fittest, fastest and the strongest I ever have been. I am strong and confident and proud of what I have achieved not only in regards to weight loss and fitness but also pushing myself and learning the wonderful art of karate and everything else that comes with it.  Earning each belt is a test for me of what I have learnt and how well I perform determines if I am worthy of that belt. When awarded with your next belt the emotion that comes with it is amazing. Everything I have achieved to date I wouldn't have been able to do without Sensei Tom and his wife Narelle pushing, supporting and believing in me, and for that I will be forever grateful. -Katey Dunkley
I commend you both on the incredible atmosphere of togetherness that is evident in your dojo, and I need to be a part of that to not only learn and practice karate for my own enjoyment, but to be a part of your amazing club.- Simone Porcianko

You guys are doing a fantastic job.  I have many things to thank Shuzoku Martial Arts for.  Firstly my 8 year old son Jamie has been attending karate classes with you for over 2 years now.  This has improved his focus, fitness, overall health and well being.  He has a great “life attitude” and a healthy level of respect for others and himself that I have no doubt he has improved since joining Shuzoku. My wife Nicole attended your Women’s Self Defense Course last year and found this a very valuable experience.  I also feel more secure now about her safety. “Thank you” does not really say it well enough.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Shuzoku Martial Arts to anyone.- James Ware


Thank you Tom and Narelle for all that you do for us. The support and guidance that you’ve bestowed on our kids (and the biggest kid! 😉) has been invaluable. And we look forward to many more years with the Shuzoku Family! -Nat Bennett
