Building a Stronger You Inside and Out

An amazing karate club - both of my daughters are thriving in their training. The increase in confidence, focus, discipline and determination has transferred across to school as well as other various activities. Valuable life lessons are communicated to all kids assisting them with creating strong and lasting foundations. Shidoshi Craig genuinely cares for each and every student which is evident to all who train. I myself train regularly and really look forward to each and every lesson. Having previous martial arts experience I am in a very good position to say that this club ticks each and every box. Zenshin is a fantastic family to be part of for anyone wishing to start or continue their martial arts journey. Highly recommended!!!!   
Wade Ibbotson

My three boys all attend classes at Currambine with two of them having been with the club for more than two years. They all love the classes and look forward to training and learning new katas and other skills. Shidoshi Craig is fantastic and genuinely cares for the boys. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the club.
Diane Sutherland

Our son has been with this dojo for four years now and has grown significantly in both diligence, concentration and confidence through this time, all of the qualities we sought to develop with his enrolment. Thanks Shidoshi Craig, we look forward to one day celebrating a future blackbelt!
Luke Hulm

Zenshin karate is an exemplary business, Shidoshi Craig is professional and fantastic with the kids, especially the younger ones, I have nothing but the highest respect for him and what he does, my kids absolutely love coming to his classes, the atmosphere is fun and accommodating yet they maintain discipline which the kids need.
Dan Littlewood

We love the community based spirit of this club! For the past year our twins have been training and it has been incredible to see how much the boys have achieved under the guidance of Shidoshi Craig. His ability to connect with all students and adapt to our boys’ needs is a large part of their success. We love the Zenshin family.

Who We Are

The Zenshin Karate Club was created in January 1998 by Shidoshi Craig Decke (6th Dan black belt) and his wife Desma Decke (3rd Dan black belt). Classes are offered here in the northern suburbs of Perth, but also in several locations in the UK. Since it's inception, the club has grown from strength to strength and has become a very successful club and... It is still growing. We have many classes running every week at multiple locations. We are also one of the few clubs in Perth to offer classes and grading programs that are designed specifically for students of certain age levels. We have a "Little Dragon's" programme for those who are aged between 4 & 8. We have a "Young Samurai's" programme for those who are aged between 9 & 13 and we also run a "Senior's" programme for those aged 14+

Karate is a form of self-defence that in its modern form originates from the Okinawan islands of Japan. The true origins of Karate may, in fact, be in China, or indeed India where Martial Arts have existed for thousands of years. Karate is a Japanese word that means  "empty hand". Zenshin means to "progress" or to "advance" or "move forward". Our style is a blend of 2 traditional styles: Shotokan and Goju-Ryu, drawing what we consider the best from them both, but it is also laced with plenty of modern-day street defence techniques.

The average class format involves learning basic striking, blocking & kicking techniques, as well as some grabs, holds and "streetwise" self defence. Students are also taught stances and Kata (pre-arranged sequences of movements that represent both attack and defence). Kumite (sparring) is also practised in class. This is primarily non-contact to allow the students to practise in safety and build confidence. 


Zenshin Karate is sanctioned by WUMA (World United Martial Arts) Federation, which means once you are a member, you can train at any of our classes across the world and any grades that you achieve are recognised worldwide.
