If we had our say, we would teach all children Martial arts – it is simply such a powerful tool for growth when practiced responsibly.
We have found no better way to strengthen bodies, impart life lessons and develop the resilience necessary to meet life challenges. At Martial Spirit, our junior programs are truly unique. Only our most experienced coaches instruct children.
Our programs also include formal training in 3 different arts; Aikido, Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, allowing for specialisation in later years. These are taught using the structure and values of the traditional approach that has been preserved for hundreds of years in Asia.

It has never been tougher being a child with so much screen time and media influence. Parents report difficulty in balancing their children’s digital and physical activity. Our program helps kids discover the joy of using their bodies to learn new skills, the power of focus and the value of personal discipline. We believe that children are doing their best to navigate life and when given the right tools and experiences will naturally keep themselves in balance. This is what our thrive program is all about; providing children the tools and experiences to do great!
Children thrive in supportive, nurturing environments that foster independence and encourage practical skills development. Our Thrive Program has an educational focus and is specifically designed to provide the foundations for future training by teaching students the basic principles of martial arts including Aikido, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. In each class students will build strength and physical fitness, improve coordination, learn technical skills and practice those skills in play.
Thrive classes run Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 5:00 – 6:00PM
