I am a professional karate instructor (shotokan) working in Beds/Bucks UK.
My wife is considering a very good job offer in Queensland, australia.
I was hoping that I could start up a few classes in australia and maybe get to the level I am working at now (or more)
Does anyone have any insight into the Karate scene in Australia?
How do things like insurance, crb checks (or equivilent) etc work over there?
What about governing bodies? Is it similar to the UK (where there is in effect no NGB!)?
Anyone recommend a good supplier of equipment (gi's and belts etc)
What about other good instructors or clubs in the rockhampton area that are worth checking out?
Google seems to throw up very little, just a few clubs that all seem to have some japanese affiliation (skiff or jka etc)
