AWMA is committed to providing quality instruction in traditional Martial Arts with a focus on self-protection, and self-perfection.
Students are taught effective, reality based defensive tactics suited to the school yard, and real world alike. Through this, we strive to promote self-confidence, strength, humility in all of our students.
Our Kids Program teaches dynamic movements, along with traditional techniques in an environment that encourages healthy competition and growth. Whereas our adults classes focus mainly on teaching effective self protection skills and developing conditioning and strength.
We believe in being Progressive, Accountable, and Inclusive. These core ideals drive us to set the new standard in the industry. All of our instructors hold a current Apply First Aid certification under the AQF, a Working With Children Check, and a Certificate of Community Coaching issued by the AIS. In addition to holding a minimum rank of 1st Dan Black Belt.
We're born and bred locals, and we're all about giving back where we can. We're the only Martial Arts club on the Border registered with the Welcome Here initiative, to create safe spaces for the LBGTQI+ community. We're an MAIA Certified CovidSafe School. And we were voted the 4th Most Popular Kids Activity in the North East for 2020.
