First Class Family Martial Arts and Fitness Centre in Hamilton


The first thing that hits you about the academy is the welcoming atmosphere, from students to parents to fitness members and instructors we are one big family. It is a pleasure to teach and train at the acedemy and the feedback we receive from members is fantastic. 


Our full time facility is very well equiped for martial arts and fitness training, boasting a large training hall approx 200 square meters in size with two large matted sparring rings, punch bags, free standing bags and a large selection of training aids.


On the fitness side we have a large 7 meter monkey bar strength rig and we have recently added a power lifting rack. Together with a wide range of gym balls, medicine balls, battle ropes and kettlebells we have everything you could possibly want for group fitness calsses and personal training. 


Our large bright viewing area allows you to relax and watch the action as your kids train or catch up on facebook and emails over a coffee.


Since opening the academy 5 years ago we have made continuous improvements to the facility, extending the training hall in the summer of 2012 and adding in new strength training equipement over the last year.
