Reviews:

I give this martial arts studio the highest recommendation. The senior instructors Ray and Tam are beyond exceptional as mentors and teachers for the kids classes. They encourage confidence, resilience and life skills, along with exceptional martial arts training to support young children growing into successful confident adults. They encourage good old fashion morals and ethics which is an absolute pleasure to witness. Personally having trained at the studio and now along with the next generation, as a family we couldn’t be happier with our experiences. It’s Especially wonderful to train in such a supportive environment with instructors who genuinely care about each and every individual who put a uniform on to improve themselves and learn martial arts. The Sargeant’s are such a beautiful and amazing family and this translates into their passion for success for all their students. I can’t thank them enough for our successes and support.” – Rebecca Campbell
Both my girls have attended MASA since they were four, and love it. Ninja Gym and Mighty Dragonz programs are a great start to learn focus and the basics to develop their training for the higher levels.” – EmmaCameron Thomas

JKA Adelaide Dojo

The JKA Adelaide Dojo, known for many years as the Adelaide Academy of Karate-Do Shotokan.

The Japan Karate Association (JKA) are the World’s foremost authority on Karate. With a vast membership in over 100 countries, the JKA is the world’s largest and most prestigious karate organisation.  They belong to JKA Karate-Do Australia which is a member of this global organisation led by Jim Wood MBE Shihan Kai member 7th Dan.

It is their belief that although Karate has a sporting aspect it is a traditional Japanese martial art and should be practiced as such. If required it is an effective form of self-defense and that it should instill in its practitioners discipline, control and confidence. Karate training must incorporate more than just the physical aspects; it must be firmly rooted in etiquette and respect.

Their adult students tell them that karate improves sleep and increases energy. It offers a unique challenge not found in gyms. It is not just getting fit, but each level presents opportunities to learn and develop new skills. Parents tell them their children gain confidence and perform better in school.

I have two children enrolled at JKA Gilles Plains. The instructors are incredibly patient and encouraging. My son has a very active mind and can be difficult to manage but the Sensei David has earned his respect. I would highly recommend JKA academy to anyone wanting to learn a martial art with world class instruction and developmental guidance.” – Daniel Fitzgerald
The life skills and friends myself and my family have gained from the AAKS will last me a lifetime! World class instruction and guidance cannot be found just anywhere and there is nowhere I would recommend so highly as JKA Adelaide.” – Matthew Smith

Crocodile Martial Arts

Crocodile Martial Arts Australia began in 2007 as a small community hall run martial arts academy headed by Grand Master Anthony Hockley, through hard work and dedication the school grew bigger and in January of 2011, with the help of his wife Kelly Hockley, Grand Master Anthony opened the first full-time location in Holden Hill, South Australia. Here they began offering classes 6 days a week in a variety of martial arts styles for adults, teens, and kids as young as 3 years old. The move to a full-time location opened the doors to being able to offer a more professional service to their students and focus on their needs, further training of instructors led to a professional team of passionate teachers who love what they do and deliver the best in martial arts training.

Their teachers not only aim to pass on the physical aspects of martial arts, they aim to be mentors and role models for all of their students, helping them build self-confidence and instill positive life skills. They believe that the martial arts are a way of life, bringing together the physical, mental, emotional and social aspects we hope that all students can learn valuable lessons which will last a life time.

One of their goals has always been to build a positive community environment around their academy, making it an inviting place for people from all walks of life. They also do their best to volunteer and get involved in the wider community and contribute to charities and community events.
