The Martial Arts Australia Team

Chairman Founder - International Martial Arts Alliance - Director Martial Arts Australia - Graham Slater

Graham started his martial arts training in England in 1973 motivated Bruce Lee movies and the need to defend against the ever increasing violence by gang warfare on the streets of Liverpool. He started by learning from books and soon tracked down a Goju Karate school to train at.

After immigrating to Australia in 1975 he commenced training in Kyokushinkai Karate, Ken Shin Kan and Kickboxing until 1979. He then started training in Shotokan / Shotokai (Harada sensei’s style) until 1982 when he changed to mainstream Japanese Shotokai Karate directly under Sensei Yasuo Ikeda (Japan) and other notable masters.

Graham is currently graded 7th Dan in Karate under the legendary Sensei Stan Schmidt and has been inducted into the Australia Martial Arts Hall of Fame (AMAHOF) and the Alan Goldberg's USA Hall of Honors.
