The Lynedoch dojo was started in July 2008 as a program for the students of Lynedoch Primary School near Stellenbosch. The community of Lynedoch is largely associated with the labour force of the surrounding wine farms in the area, which to a large degree does not offer the same opportunities that more affluent areas may provide.

The Sustainability Institute (, which runs upliftment programs for the local community has sponsored karate classes and uniforms for about 40 willing students between the ages of 8-14 years.

The classes are run by Sensei Tony Edwards.
