BRUCE LEE'S MMA

Our MMA Phase One Program is unique; you wont find anything else like it anywhere in Australia. We offer the cutting edge training methods and concepts that are practical and workable for combat and competition settings. The arts taught in our MMA class are: Bruce Lee’s JKD, Jun Fan, Filipino Kali, Kickboxing, Boxing, Wrestling, Muay Thai, Savate & Grappling. All students begin with a general conditioning and general awareness phase. 70% of the training is Jun Fan Kick boxing (Bruce's kick boxing methods). The other 30% is divided between trapping, standing grappling, ground grappling, single stick and single knife training, basic self-defense, mass attack training (two on one, three on one) and environmental training. The goal during this phase of training is to develop the student's overall awareness of each aspect of street fighting. The major focus of the training will be to develop the student's overall awareness in all ranges of MMA: Kicking, Punching, Trapping, Grappling, Weapons and Mass Attack. In Phase 1 we also introduce the famous Military Navy Seal Self-Defense Program as well as our Okami BJJ.

Self-Defense

Our Self-defense program has an adult and childrens syllabus, it provides you with real skills that work in the real world – and we do so via a proven method in a safe and fun environment. The adult self-defense is based on our Navy Seal Military technology program still used today in real life combat. This program combines Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Kali and Jiu-jitsu. Our childrens self defense program is a complete different syllabus from that studied by adults. We do not encourage our young students to solve problems by just punching and kicking their way out of a confrontation. We teach our kids how to gain control and negotiate with the person standing or once the fight hits the ground. Once self-confidence and self-esteem is increased kids do better at school at home and their future career, most of all LIFE.

OKAMI BJJ

Okami BJJ is a Japanese origin based system with a Brazilian modified method and an American influenced flare to form what we know as Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or BJJ. Okami BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. Jiu-Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations.

Machida MMA Adults

Machida MMA is a dynamic and effective method of training that is practical for self-defense. Easy to learn for all ages, it is applicable in realistic situations and improves your fitness level by developing well-rounded combative and fighting skills. Over the last several decades, karate has lost its core effectiveness as a method of street self-defense due to the emphasis most schools place on point-based sportive tournaments. Machida MMA is committed to preserving the integrity of the art by teaching the techniques and philosophies that ensure karate’s effectiveness where it matters most. Machida MMA is a very traditional form of karate that was adapted by Master Machida and his sons to be effective in real street self-defense situations as well as MMA competitions. It utilizes traditional techniques such as punches, knees, kicks and elbows, takedowns, grappling and submissions.

Machida MMA PUPS Age 3-6 & CUBS 7-10

Our Kids Pups & Cubs classes place a strong emphasis on developing a sense of teamwork, focus and balance. We also want to help our students to remember that, although winning is a great accomplishment, loosing is part of life, and that the most important thing is to be able to give one’s best. A variety of drills are used to increase body coordination, focus, listening skills and to instill a positive mental attitude. These classes teach the basic techniques and Katas to prepare the student for advancement under the Machida Karate Belt System and for the transition to the Youth Wolves program.

Machida MMA Wolves Age 11-14

Our Age Youth Wolf classes students will learn: Machida Karate techniques, speed and precision. How to improve coordination, balance, flexibility, strength, stamina How to dominate feelings such as Courage, self-esteem, self-control, respect and discipline. The physical benefits are energizing, as children practice kicking, punching, blocking, stretching, running and jumping during each interactive class, encouraging a healthy lifestyle in a fun environment. The training atmosphere is safe, supportive and non-competitive, since Machida Karate emphasizes the team work in order to achieve individual goals. Our Youth students will be learning on an individual level, but they will also be learning with their fellow class mates and instructors, which will naturally help create a space where everyone can learn together, as well as socialize together.

The UFC Ultimate Fighter 9 winner

I began training TaeKwonDo and Bruce Lee's martial art style, Jeet Kune Do while living in the United Kingdom. In 2000 I moved to the United States and began training under Erik Paulson with Combat Submission Wrestling. It was at that time period I met Robert Parmakovski in a JKD/Kali training session.
