Which martial art is best for me?

Why choose just one? We say the best way to find out which martial art is best for you is to give them all a go! All members are able to take unlimited classes across all of our disciplines. Get in touch if you’d like to know more about our classes!

How old do I need to be?

Our kids’ classes are available to children ages 4 and up. At approximately 14 years of age children may be able to join adult classes. Adults can typically train safely at our gym until around 70 years of age.

What about gender?

Our current membership base is almost 50/50 male and female, and our classes are available to all genders. We do also offer some female specific classes including Womens Self-Defence and Womens Cardio Fitness.

What should I bring to my first class?

All of our classes require you to wear appropriate exercise attire and footwear. You should also bring a sweat towel for comfort and hygiene, and always bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.   

It is best to avoid singlets for disciplines such as MMA and NOGI, instead wear a t-shirt or rashie. Wrestling, BJJ, MMA, Grappling, Sparring and NOGI all require a protective mouthguard.

We supply all additional equipment, however if you have your own feel free to bring them along (such as boxing mits, gloves, wraps and focus mits).

Whether you are a professional, woman or child, our classes are taught in a fun and supportive environment, and tailored to people of any age, gender and experience.
