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.
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.
