Australian Martial Arts Academy


The Adults program is a fun, friendly and effective style of martial arts and self defence training. The program is a great way of improving your fitness, strength and flexibility. Training will leave you feeling excited to improve your confidence, health and mindset. AMA has over 120 classes operating 7 days per week, giving you the flexibility to suit your busy lifestyle.

This program will see you progress through the sport of Taekwondo with added elements from many martial arts to ensure members are confident to defend themselves and always challenged with something new. Australian Martial Arts Academy prides itself in having the best quality instructors and students, but most importantly still maintaining that friendly environment in which your goals as an individual member are met, with Adults classes run by certified award-winning Head Instructors and Master Instructors.

Adults classes are available for beginners all the way up to black belts with a variety of specialty and advanced programs also available. At the Australian Martial Arts Academy we believe it is never too late to start! We have many great classes available including our family class in which mums and dads, even grandparents can train with their kids – be great active role models for their children and have even more fun than the kids while doing so! It is a great way to have fun and share quality time with your kids.

Martial Arts like Taekwondo involves all major muscle groups in the body and because of this it is one of the highest kilojoule burning sports that also improves core strength and flexibility to provide the energy to enjoy life. The best thing is that as an individual sport you can build up in your own time and watch your journey of improvement.


I travel 2 hours just to train at this academy and it’s so worth it! This academy is a second home to me. Not only do you get exceptional world class learnings and skills, you get treated like family. The instructors are always so helpful and will go above and beyond to support and encourage you. I can’t recommend this place enough. Joining AMAA was the best decision I ever made.

I started here to get fit and build a healthier lifestyle but I ended up getting so much more from the sessions. I didn’t think that I would enjoy gaining all the belts as much as I did- it’s so rewarding and motivating. This place is great, the people are so positive and even after the worse day at work I leave feeling awesome. I’m fitter, stronger and doing things better then I did in my 20’s and loving getting away from a gym.

Have been going here for over 5 years and it has dramatically improved my self esteem and fitness. This place has an amazing sense of community.

“I Love it. I don’t think ive ever been as fit as i am now”

“Its Very Goal Orientated and i Loved achieving my goal”

“Socially i have Made some Wonderful friends”

“I Consider the academy my second home”

“I thought it would be too challenging with kicks and sparring …but its amazing when you start at the beginning with great training, step by step, it becomes easier and helps be believe in myself and say WOW I can do this.

Happy 35 years, AMA. I’ve been training with you for just six, but when I was asked recently whether taekwondo gave me a ‘workout’, I thought I’d write down a few of the things that keep me coming back.

The quick answer is yes! But it doesn’t stop at a workout.

As a 1980s teenager I did my share of cardio fitness aerobic classes (New Body, Step, anyone?) Taekwondo does that and more. We drip sweat! Depending on the teacher, outside air temperature or any other variable (the Grand Master can be unforgiving in those weeks after Christmas), expect a warm up, stretches then 20­–40 minutes of heart-pounding exercise. And we do it to music! I’ve never figured out who puts together the workout tracks, but hats off. They’re great.

While kicks are adjusted for belt colour, everybody is pushing it. Powerful repetitions of a white belt kick can be as exhausting as a senior belt kick. We add technique onto technique, building up combinations of punches, kicks, spins, jumps and occasionally gymnastics moves (who would have guessed that learning cartwheels as a kid would be so useful now!)

We all train together. As a beginner, I learned so much from the black belts’ patient tuition in class. I love giving back now, and helping others is one of the best ways to remind yourself of the techniques again.

The sheer pleasure in ‘getting’ a technique is something you’d never get in boot camp. I remember my incredulity in first learning a double turning kick: this is a turning kick on one leg, immediately followed up with a second kick with the other. What? How can I bring up that leg before I’ve even landed the first? It’s now second nature. And you move on, learning and applying more difficult skills. It’s impossible not to smile watching someone master something new. And the breadth of the curriculum makes this workout different. In any class you could be practicing kicks, self-defence moves, sparring ….or meditating.

I used to captain my school tennis team; while I still think it is a beautiful game, those moments when I revelled in my control and skill seemed too rare. In taekwondo, you don’t need a partner or an opponent. You’re competing against yourself. Showing up, training, perfecting a technique will only matter to you, in the end.

And the real difference? We’re asked to reflect on who we are, and where we’re going. Setting goals in life as well as sport is the backbone of Australian Martial Arts’ operation. It’s working for me.

I started at a matureish-aged person (37), never having done a sport before. I had always envied kids who did martial arts…but i didn’t think I could. It was almost as a bit of a joke that i decided that i wanted to get a black belt…. i figured I had to at least be doing a martial arts if i wanted to have any hope of actually getting one. Four and a half years on, I am now a first dan black belt, and considering grading for my second dan…and whilst I can’t do no-handed cartwheels, back flips and the like, I am fitter, more flexible…and happier then i have ever been….and you know, I can keep up with my kids…and still get away with that little black dress if I so choose =D. The things I love about doing taekwondo at AMA, are the diverse range of instructors that we get exposed to…Miss Sarah’s eye for technical detail, Miss Bushra who pushes your body just that little bit further than you thought it could go, Mr Richard who makes every lesson fun, Mr Hakan who unpacks every move, and expects speed, and of course Grandmaster Ridvan whose charisma is palpable. Every class is different, and you feel both mentally and physically engaged……it’s a bit of an addiction really. And being such a great place, it seems that great people are attracted, I have met fabulous people, and made some very fun’s easy as being open, warm and encouraging is part of the atmosphere of the place. Come along and find out for yourself!

“Its been amazing, i have made lots of friends, I’ve learnt so much and i feel stronger in every way.”
“I find that the classes are really flexible here with options 7 days a week, fits in perfect with my working schedule”
“I have found every instructor here amazing, i really appreciate their patience, i work mostly with Sarah, she’s amazing.”

“I really enjoy the discipline of training, there is a great mix of cardio and flexibility work”

“Every teacher I’ve found is so supportive and challenges you in different ways, its a complimentary team that has lots of different strengths and skills to make this a fantastic place to come and train.”

“I personally value the mat chat time at the end of the class in which the Grand Master draws on his experiences and philosophy of martial arts training and life.”

Thank you for all that you do!


“it doesn’t matter if you are a white belt or a black belt, everyone is treated equally and with the utmost respect”


Warm, friendly and helpful staff, always making you feel welcome. A great place to work on fitness and learn self defence.


I have been a part of this club for close to 15 years and I am so excited to now see my own children now being a part of it! I can already see an improvement in confidence, understanding and discipline for my little one. Respect is a huge factor and seeing his admiration for instructors lets me know he has already established well grounded role models.
Love that I cannot wipe the smile off his face also before and after class.
Thank you team AMA!


My two kids have been training with AMA for the past 18 months. The experience we have had to date has been absolutely phenomenal. The instructors are always friendly and down to earth when interacting with the students. I really appreciate the motivational speeches by the Master and head instructors – particularly Mr Hakan who strongly emphasises the importance of education and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.


My son and I love coming to this place. The organisation and discipline are outstanding and the quality of what is delivered is top class. Well done!


I couldn’t speak more highly of the Academy. Such a wide range of programs for all ages that cater for everyone’s level. The children’s classes my son attends are great, he always has loads of fun whilst learning the techniques of the sport, so he always looks forward to going to his classes. All the teachers are amazing, extremely skilled, with such a consistent teaching style and always of a high standard. The atmosphere at the Academy is so welcoming and encouraging and I highly recommend the Academy to anyone.


Brilliantly organised and fantastic instructors


From the moment we got in touch with the academy, they could not have been more helpful and inclusive. My young son lacks concentration but the staff encouraged and guided him in a positive friendly manner. The lessons include not only instruction in martial arts but include social skills such as confidence building, team work and participation as well. the staff are encouraging and always explain why they are doing something as well as how, it was all broken down in a manner that kids just get! The timetable is incredibly flexible and the options they offer suit busy families as we all are! My son came away enthused and vibrant about the class and excited about the next one. I would definitely recommend and will be back!

My son who is normally timid got stuck straight into the class and liked it. I was skeptical at first, of how encouraging the staff all were, but after two visits I’ve had time to evaluate and it’s genuine. You teach in a supportive, encouraging environment and you’ll breed it. Love that the week is flexible. Was dubious as they recommend doing two classes a week but since you aren’t locked into one class you can change and come whenever it suits you that week. Also love it’s not just karate but social and life skills they are learning.

The minute I walked in at the AMA I fell in love with this place. The energy in the Academy is amazing! Calm but firm, respectful yet fun! If you have a high energy child that needs some guidance how to direct their energy into a positive outcome, this is IT! The staff is extremely nice and very informative. Classes run often and kids get to show what they have learnt on a day in front of their parents. My daughter loved it from the very first time and couldn’t stop practicing her little routine that she has learnt on her first day. Kids are encouraged to practice and listen so they can achieve the next level belt. Parents can relax with a cup of coffee while waiting for the session to finish. Great place to start and continue this adventure with Martial Arts.

Friendly staff. Great programs for all ages even from 18 mths old. Lots of classes to choose from throughout the week, giving you flexibility.
Voted as the best martial arts school in the world. Our whole family trains here and would highly recommend it to everyone.


Great place for the kids to do their extra curricular activities. Very active program. They teach techniques as well as philosophy such as respect, etc. Very professional and friendly teachers. kids love it there!


Quality of Instruction:Excellent Other aspects:Excellent Recommended:Yes
Especially for our children that attend twice a week and the adults a number of great reasons as self-defense,

mental and spiritual development; as well as entertainment. It’s brilliant.
