Martial Arts boosts self-confidence, physical health and wellness, positive thinking and more.

Whether you are looking to learn personal safety skills, take up a combat sport hobby or simply widen your social circle, we are here for you. We teach Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and 'Mat Rats' Kids Grappling (imparts the fundamental martial art skills for children ages 4 and up).

Kids program
The 'cutting edge' martial arts programs of today are far removed from that which was taught in the traditional schools of yesteryear. The principal instructor at Black Belt Studios, Mr. John Will, believes that children should be exposed to a completely different syllabus from that studied by adults - and as such has developed the cutting edge 'Future Leaders' program.

'Our Future Leaders program' says Mr. Will, 'incorporates street awareness skills, body language games, physical control systems as well as other life-relevant skills that are important to today's children in today's world. For instance; it is equally important for a child to know their home phone number and be able to make a reverse charges call from a public phone booth as it is to be able to handle the school bully.'

Another important benefit to be gained from participating in a martial arts program is an increase in mental discipline. New and improved attitudes mean that we are better equipped to make correct decisions when life challenges us with new obstacles. Children with strong mental discipline, are least likely to be susceptible to peer-pressure anxieties, whilst adults learn to manage stress levels bought on by life's pressures.

Many parents have reported that their children have dramatically improved their school grades after they joined our Future Leaders program. Due to increased levels of self-confidence and improved self-esteem, kids just do a lot better at school as well as at home. Better results at school and being more responsible and better behaved at home can strongly influence a child's overall success in their future career and life.

'The physical part of our Future Leaders program' says Mr. Will, 'places a big emphasis on grappling and control skills. We do not encourage our young students to solve problems by just punching and kicking their way out of a confrontation. Firstly, it just doesn't work against the larger and stronger bully; and secondly, all most all of the schoolyard incidents end up on the ground. We teach our kids how to gain and keep control of a larger person once the fight hits the ground. It's all about control; on many levels.'

Mr. Will, and other staff members of the BJJ Academy travel overseas each and every year to keep abreast of the rapid changes taking place at the leading edge of martial arts development. 'We don't rest on our laurels' says Mr. Will, 'we don't teach a traditional martial arts system. We are all about real results, real-life skills. We don't just talk about it; we do it. I began my own training 35 years ago; and now, some 80 overseas training trips later; we can guarantee a world-class service. We never take short-cuts!'
