KUNG FU FOR KIDS

KUNG FU FOR KIDS

Kung Fu For KIDS 
Want your child to develop resilience, confidence and discipline?
One of the biggest challenges facing kids these days is a lack of confidence and low self esteem.
This lack of confidence can cause shyness, difficulty making friends, poor focus, low grades at school, laziness in studies and at home, a disrespectful attitude, bullying or getting into trouble. Our Kung Fu classes help kids to become fit, focused and feel great while building that confidence so that they can thrive! All of our programs encourage students to minimise contact and avoid conflict.
We want to help your child find their path to confidence and grow their self esteem while learning valuable life lessons and how to defend themselves all in a safe and welcoming environment.
Cubs Program
Ages 5 to 8 Years
The Cubs program is a specialised program built around setting achievable age appropriate goals for children in this age group to progress in the art of YiQuan Kung Fu, self defence and bully protection, all while burning off energy and getting fit.
The Cubs have defined topics, clear grading curriculum and all of this is provided in a constructive and fun environment. Our goal is to help your child develop a strong moral character and positive attitude and we are committed to helping all of our students reach their full potential. Help your child improve their strength, co-ordination and fitness in our Cubs program today.
Tigers Program
Ages 9 to 12
The Tiger program is all about helping students in this age group to develop good healthy habits, a positive attitude, lifeskills, sharp focus and proficiency in the art of Yiquan Kungfu. We know at the heart of helping your child to develop these attributes self confidence is fundamental and because of this our classes concentrate on developing physical, mental and spiritual growth for your child by providing clear positive feedback and making them feel valued.
Our professional instructors develop your child’s confidence with their body physically by encouraging healthy exercise habits, good nutrition and a positive, educated mindset. Your child will form healthy attitudes and behaviours by developing routine and discipline so that they can achieve their goals at school, at home and in martial arts. Our aim is for them to show respect for themselves, their parents, their siblings and their teachers in order for them to develop positive relationships and show respect for all. Help your child to develop a healthy body image as they value fitness, co-ordination, speed and the confidence to stand up for themselves not just physically but most importantly using a firm and fair vocabulary and body language.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

    GIOVANNI RUTIGLIANO
  • 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.

    Apart from the instructors, the venue is also amazing and comforting as it is always safe, family friendly and clean. I have full trust of the academy and have no hesitation when dropping my children off to train.

    Overall, I strongly recommend parents to provide their children with the opportunity to train martial arts at some stage in their childhood. The benefits AMA has provided to my children have been priceless. Thank you AMA!

    JAMES RUSHTON
  • 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!

AMA Online Virtual Classes

AMA ONLINE VIRTUAL CLASSES

PARENTS

Keeping your kids fit and healthy can be a challenge especially when circumstances don’t allow them to attend in person sessions or socialise with their friends.

It’s easy to let ipads and video games be the answer to keeping the kids occupied. But what if you could transform that screen time into something that would give them confidence, boost their immune system, keep them fit, and give them the tools to succeed in life?

The good news is that at The Australian Martial Arts Academy has been providing these services over 38 years. Now our online martial arts program can do all of that!

We’re here to help you raise a strong, confident leader while teaching focus and self-defence skills without the need for them to attend a studio! The great news is that kids can follow along under the guidance of our instructors while you get on with all that other stuff or you can do it as a whole family and keep fit and sane together!

Parenting should not have to be a stressful task you face alone! Let AMA help you equip your child for success from the comfort of your own home.

The virtual training curriculum offers education and development of life-skills whilst keeping your child fit and healthy, entertained, and active.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What kind of equipment do I need for my child to take online classes?

In order to attend online classes you’ll just need an internet connection and a computer OR any of the following: iOS 7 or later, iPhone 4 or iPad 2 or later, Android 4.0x or later, or Kindle Fire HD. If you are not using the Zoom app we recommend using the latest version of Google Chrome.

I love all the benefits such as confidence, self-esteem, and focus … but will my kid have fun with online classes?

Our Martial Arts classes’ primary goal is to make sure our students have fun and learn the benefits of physical activities. In a time of uncertainty, it’s important to have a sense of routine. Our instructors have a blast and your kids will too.

Does my child need any special training equipment to attend virtual classes? We realise that not everyone has equipment at home. We find ways to substitute our equipment with household items like using pillows or towels so you can still participate in all aspects of the class. We always concentrate on what we can do rather than on what we can’t do and encourage our families to take up thei positive attitude too.

Does my child need to have previous experience or any particular fitness level to enrol in martial arts classes? No. We have classes for all skill levels so no matter what their experience level is, they can benefit from our classes.

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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Apart from the instructors, the venue is also amazing and comforting as it is always safe, family friendly and clean. I have full trust of the academy and have no hesitation when dropping my children off to train.

    Overall, I strongly recommend parents to provide their children with the opportunity to train martial arts at some stage in their childhood. The benefits AMA has provided to my children have been priceless. Thank you AMA!

FAMILY CLASSES

FAMILY CLASSES

AMA has changed the way families approach exercise with a belief in children imitating what they see rather than what they are told to do by parents, so many of our parents choose to get involved, have fun and keep fit with no time away from their child. From this AMA has one of the highest enrolments of whole families, whom have the ability for family members of all age groups to train at the same time.

The family classes run in age and ability group with a main instructor giving direction for the whole class and individual groups having their own instructors to take care of the specific needs of the age group and level. At the end of the sessions families get together and challenge their parent in a push, self defence or sit up challenge, which is always a lot of fun.

Family classes are a great way for the whole family to enjoy being a family unit, learn new things together and a way for everyone to feel part of the team while getting fit, flexible and strong. The family that kick together – stick together!

  • 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.

ADULTS

ADULTS PROGRAM (AGES 18+)

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 115 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.

 

TESTIMONIALS FOR THIS PROGRAM

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.
– BY NINZ KHAN

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.
– BY CHRIS SEARGEANT

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.
– ETHAN NOBLE GREEN

“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”
– JEN O’REILLY

“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.
– JEN O’REILLY

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.
– JESSICA STEWART

I started at AMA..as 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 friends..it’s easy as being open, warm and encouraging is part of the atmosphere of the place. Come along and find out for yourself!
– JODIE GOLDNEY

“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.”
– NATALIE JOOMA

“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.”
– NATALIE WASLEY

“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.”
– EMMA BENN

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    GIOVANNI RUTIGLIANO
  • 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.

    Apart from the instructors, the venue is also amazing and comforting as it is always safe, family friendly and clean. I have full trust of the academy and have no hesitation when dropping my children off to train.

    Overall, I strongly recommend parents to provide their children with the opportunity to train martial arts at some stage in their childhood. The benefits AMA has provided to my children have been priceless. Thank you AMA!

  • 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!

NINJAS PROGRAM

NINJAS PROGRAM (AGES 9-12 YEARS)

The Ninja’s Program takes the needs and energy levels of the 9 to 12-year-old age group and challenges them to set goals and achieve them.

Students practice self defence, bully busting and stranger awareness skills while progressing through the sport of Taekwondo. Students are consistently challenged by class programs which change every week, clear belt based content and the options of progressing into many advanced programs. These include advanced kicks and tricking techniques, sparing, patterns, advanced self defence and demonstrative weapon routines.

Your child will be encouraged to take care of their body and have a positive attitude and work ethic while ensuring that each class boasts a great fitness, flexibility and strengthening component. Watch your child develop into a focused, driven young person with healthy life habits as the instructors chat regularly about the challenges this age group face including managing stress and emotions, decreasing screen time, taking responsibility for themselves and their body and having a positive attitude.

The Ninja’s program has been developed over our 35 years of experience to work in accordance with the needs of this highly evolving age group to ensure that they are ready for the social, physical and mental requirements of high school. Our dedicated team is ready to make sure that your child is set up for a successful life ahead.

 

TESTIMONIALS FOR THIS PROGRAM

Started our first session today, and our son enjoyed it so much. Thank you and looking forward to many more sessions to come.
– GHADA BRAHIM  

Two of my daughters are currently enrolled in the Ninjas Program at the academy. They are 9 and 11. Initially, i was reluctant in getting them involved as i didnt know what to expect. But from the moment we walked in to AMA, the staff were friendly and accommodated my shy girls right from the get go. They are now hooked and loving the classes. One of the best decisions we have made as a family.

I highly recommend AMA Marrickville for kids to build self esteem and self respect. My 10 year old son has been attending regularly for almost 3 years now. He has also attended quite a few of the school holiday camps which he loves too. His confidence has increased significantly and I attribute that to AMA. Sarah has been so supportive when he was going through a tough time; when no one else was interested. I love all the teachers here they’re all so kind and excellent at what they do!

TESTIMONIALS FOR THIS PROGRAM

I just wanted to pass on my thanks to all the instructors that have been supportive of my son in the early months of his lessons. In particular Miss Montana and Mr Otis who have had most contact but everyone else who has encouraged him…especially when he was a bit reluctant to go in (Mr Mark had to carry him in at least once!).

I think we are mostly over the hump now and Sunday morning are about excitement now.
– ALLISON ELIZABETH

 

AMA is an amazing Martial Arts Academy that has transformed my 7 year old over the past 4 years. Kiki started off in the Little Dragon’s program at 3 when she was shy and lacked confidence. She now has worked incredibly hard to achieve a black belt and applies all that she learns at Taekwondo to her school and social life – she understands respect, the need for hard work and focus and learns not only Taekwondo, but also important life related skills such as self-defence, stranger danger, how to deal with bullying, leadership skills, how to become a teacher and tricking! AMA is now an integral part of her daily life and she loves being part of the great community that they have created.

There are so many types of classes to choose from as well as extra curricular events, such as Sunday Superstars, and Birthday Parties. Kiki had her 5th Birthday Party there and amazed her friends with all the skills and gymnastics she had learnt but cutting her cake with a “Samurai ” sword topped the bill!
The teachers really are excellent role models that the students look up to and strive to be like. They always show care and consideration, and its never too much trouble to make themselves available to listen and answer questions and concerns.

AMA was recommended to me and I am so pleased I acted on it.
– CAT METCALFE

 

I enrolled my daughter almost 4 years ago on advice from a friend who knew Grand Master Ridvan through some of the pastoral support programmes he has set up for students over the years – above and beyond martial arts training.

After seeing how much my daughter was getting out of the programme I decided to start as well; making it part of our family routine. As one of the least co-ordinated and sporty people in the world I was worried. From the first class I discovered not only a fantastic array of supportive and exceptionally talented instructors, but a wonderful community where students help and encourage each other.

Four years (almost) on and my not-so-little girl is 7. She has a passion for contact sparring and wants to represent Australia in the Olympics one day. I love seeing how AMA has helped her discover a passion, and how the focus, self-confidence, friendship, ‘bully-busting’ and safety skills she learns benefit her every day. I, somehow, have a black belt myself, and love the fun, friendly and physically challenging classes. I am now fitter than I’ve ever been, and feeling stronger and happier in my own body. Some of our family’s closest friendships have been made and/or cemented through AMA. I remember the first time I met Master he told the class that at AMA we are one big family, and as trite as it may sound, I truly have felt that ever since.

I may well be biased, but I truly cannot recommend the Australian Martial Arts Academy highly enough. There are programmes for everyone, from 18 month-olds on; there’s tae kwon do, along with kickboxing, self-defence, tricking, leadership development and low-impact classes based on tai chi.
– LUCY MARTIN

 

I decided to start my son doing martial arts when he was 3. He was a big strong boy and didn’t understand his own strength so he was rough and pushed a lot and it was becoming an issue. I started Jacob at AMAA in one of the first Little Dragons classes. It took a couple of weeks for him to settle in but with the help of the wonderful Miss Sarah he was soon loving it and within a few weeks the pushing and roughness was gone. He had an outlet & understood when and how he could or should use his strength. It was fantastic!
When Jacob got to school at age 5 & a half (after 2 years at AMAA) he had already learnt self discipline, focus, concentration and goal setting. He already understood the importance of learning and the pleasure of achievement. He had self respect and respect for others and he had an incredible martial arts school full of amazing role models to look up to and follow.

Jacob turns 10 in 2 weeks. He has been with AMAA for 6 and a half years. Next year he will sit his 3rd Dan Black Belt exam. We have spent thousands of hours at AMAA and every time I am there I still see things that confirm for me what an amazing place it is. My son has other activities and sports but he has learnt far more from this environment than any other and all around him are children who are taking it all in and supporting each other.

I could go on and on about the great instructors, the world champions, the flawless leadership of Miss Sarah, Mr Hakan and Miss Busra and the vision of Ridvan Manav (The Master) – together they have created more than just a martial arts academy. They have created a school that aims to teach our children to be safe & strong but also to be real adults, good people, hard workers, respectful community members and good role models.

Oh – and they teach Tae Kwon Do and guess what – they are the best in the world!!
– KATHRINE WAWATAI

“I think martial arts is great for kids confidence, its a beautiful combination between brain and body”
“My sons coordination and flexibility has really improved…but i think its the confidence, i can see him getting more and more confident the better he gets”
“He feels really good about himself and thats lovely”
“I think the belt system is really positive, it means he’s rewarded for all his hard work”
“We almost always have Mr Mark and he is a Delight, he’s kind, he’s really positive, the classes are run professionally”
“Theres a lot of warmth and a lot of encouragement.”
“Sebastian has become so much more coordinated and confident” (Sebastian’s Mum)
“He definitely knows how to stop a bully”

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.

  • Great place, great attitude!

  • 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.

  • Fantastically encouraging

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Apart from the instructors, the venue is also amazing and comforting as it is always safe, family friendly and clean. I have full trust of the academy and have no hesitation when dropping my children off to train.

    Overall, I strongly recommend parents to provide their children with the opportunity to train martial arts at some stage in their childhood. The benefits AMA has provided to my children have been priceless. Thank you AMA!

  • 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!
