How to fit Martial Arts into your busy life.

Posted in Martial Arts Blog

Jessica Stewart, mother of 3, explains how she balances Family, Work, Martial arts and Shopping

The other day my mother noted, surprised, that I’d been doing taekwondo for five years and I realised how it’s become a part of my life. With three kids, full-time work and a general disinclination towards exercise, how did I get here? I think it’s a combination of planning, commitment and taking advantage of a few indirect benefits.

10 Sure-Fire ways to prevent your child from getting caught in the technology vacuum.

In 2016 almost everybody down to the age of 8 has a personal portable device. Be it an ipad, i-touch, tablet or iPhone. Research reveals that the Average Australian Household has up to 8 internet connectable devices. This transformation has come with great advantages.  Instantaneous video chatting capabilities at very little to no cost. Access to an abundance and ever increasing pool of resources at your fingertips. New innovations and emergence of brand new industries. The increase in learning portals and apps have changed the education and learning landscape. Many professions now require you to use multiple devices over the working day.  And ultimately, being up to date in such an ever changing climate. These include encouraging children to work with more complex ideas from an earlier age, promoting skills in collaboration and problem solving, accelerating learning in the first year of school, helping children with learning challenges and enhancing mathematics learning. School curricula around the word rely on technology for this very reason.

Belt System at AMA and their Representation

Posted in Martial Arts Blog

At the Australian Martial Arts Academy, there are a total of 9 Belts Before Black. Starting with white going through to Black. Students attain their next level once they perform their required techniques for that specific rank at the Belt promotions, which occur 4 times a year. Lets get into their order and definition.

In accordance to their colour differences, the belt system at AMA also has references to nature. The white belt represents the purity of the innocence of a beginner with out knowledge. The yellow belt represents the emerging sun, the green the growth under the sun, the blue as the sky as we grow towards the sun, the red is the heat of the sun, and the black as the universe, and knower of all things.

How Stretching will increase your Quality of Life

Posted in Martial Arts Blog

Stretching is a fundamental component in martial arts training however, stretching and improvements in flexibility have many benefits in our day-to-day lives. In its simplest form it is a natural and automatic reaction to long periods of inactivity and is something we do instinctively. However, with age, muscles tighten and the range of motion in these muscles and joints are minimised. This can have detrimental impacts to our lifestyle and our daily activities. A regular stretching regimen can help lengthen your muscles and make daily living activities easier. 

So what exactly is stretching? Stretching is purely the act of extending or lengthening to the complete length or extent that our body is capable of, or, sometimes just a single body part. Stretching involves straightening or lengthening your complete structure, muscles, and limbs.
