Research has demonstrated that complex physical activity, such as Martial Arts, strengthens neural networks within the brain, enabling young people with ADHD to practice self-control and manage symptoms like impulsivity and distractibility. In addition to this, the martial arts program also enables young people to develop their physical coordination, provides opportunities to release energy and enables young people to focus on their own individual growth.

Consequently, Kamaruka has incorporated Martial Arts into its educational program and throughout the years many students have developed their self-esteem and be extremely proud of what they have been able to achieve from participation in this structured physical activity.

The Martial Arts program includes Karate and provides training for students to be graded on-site (if they wish) and achieve belts.

There is also a focus on the development of self-control and self-realisation. Only students demonstrating controlled skills are permitted to participate in sparring practice.

Kamaruka is well facilitated with its own Dojo.


Kamaruka is committed to providing a safe environment where boys can develop an understanding of how to relate to other people in a respectful way.
