Canberra Martial Arts Academy

Canberra Martial Arts Academy

Canberra Martial Arts Academy has been providing martial arts tuition in Canberra for the last 30 years. Our instructors have decades of teaching experience and have competed internationally as well as all around Australia.

We have something for everyone - karate, mixed martial arts, kickboxing and weapons training. Best of all it’s available for all ages and all skill levels. We have separate kids and adults classes.

Kyokushin Karate

The name Kyokushin translates to 'The way of the ultimate truth', a realistic method of self defence that uses practical and effective techniques for the real world. 

Our classes cover all the traditional Kyokushin Karate techniques such as punches, strikes, kicks, blocks, take downs, throws and grappling - all using modern training methods. Competition takes all forms, kata, controlled-contact and full-contact.

Traditional Weapons - Kobudo

The name Kobudo translates to 'Old Martial Way', fighting the way it was done centuries ago - with weapons! We study five traditional weapons, Nunchaku, Tonfa, Kama, however the main two weapons we use are Bo and Sai. 

Our classes cover practicing individual techniques, kata, step sparring and defence against these weapons. Where our weapons classes differ from others is, on top of all the weapons you will learn to use, you will also be taught how to kick using the effective kicks from Kyokushin Karate. Competition is both non-contact and demonstration.

Mixed Martial Arts - Jissen Budo

Jissen budo is the Japanese mixed martial arts. Competition is only full contact, combining the punches and strikes of Kickboxing and Karate as well as the throws of Judo and ground fighting of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This makes Jissen Budo one of the most dynamic styles in the world! 

Many practitioners of Jissen Budo have made successful transitions into Kickboxing, Karate and the UFC!

K1 Kickboxing

Kickboxing is the ideal way to get fit, learn effective self defence and test yourself in competition. Kickboxing is primarily a striking martial art consisting of punches, strikes, elbows, knees but also uses effective kicks. Where we differ from other Kickboxing clubs, is that we also teach takedowns and sweeps that are legal in tournaments. Competition is only full-contact.
