I take this opportunity to welcome visitors to the website of the children's karate class at the Academy of Traditional Fighting Arts in Bayswater, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Since 1985 we have been dedicated to providing quality tuition in authentic traditional martial arts disciplines in the Perth metropolitan area.  Our children's class has been in operation since we first opened. The focus in our children's class has always been to build essential motor skills, foster self discipline and encourage confidence and creativity.  Accordingly we endeavour to provide a friendly, non-competitive environment where children can acquire these skills and attributes safely and enjoyably. We are proud to say that many of our children have stayed on with the Academy into adulthood and continue to be part of our extended family. Now the digital age has afforded us with the opportunity to create what we believe to be the most comprehensive martial arts resource provid
