Our club mission is to engage self-development and personal growth through effective martial arts. We pride ourselves in the progress of our less athletic students over the achievements of our more active members.

We seek to train with anyone who is willing to open their mind to quality martial arts without an ego, and to learn in a relaxed, friendly yet competitive environment. We stay true to the theory that our classes favour technique and efficiency of movement over brute force. We will not tolerate any aggressive attitudes or disrespectful behaviour in our gym.

Respect is earned through dedication to training with a friendly, polite attitude inside and outside the classes.

Equip yourself with the ability to efficiently defend yourself, develop the technique to excel in competition, achieve self-discipline, obtaining a healthy body and mind, as well as making friends along the way.

We look forward to training with you!
