Karate Instructor Accreditation

Karate Queensland Heads of Style must maintain Australian Karate Federation Accredited Karate Instructor certification. The aim of this policy is to help ensure that karate training is undertaken in a safe and responsible manner to a high standard of practice, in keeping with current physical training principles and competencies.

Karate Queensland encourages all Dojo coaches and advanced karate ka to become Accredited Karate Instructors. To qualify you must hold a minimum karate grade of 3rd kyu with a KQ/AKF member organisation and be at least 16 years old. The four year certification period commences when the course is successfully completed.
