AWMA teaches traditional Karate with a focus on developing real world self defense skills, as well as fostering discipline, strength, and respect.
We have individual programs aimed at students aged 6 and over. Our Kids Karate Program (6-12yrs) focuses on building confidence and practical self defense skills. While our Traditional Karate Program teaches old style Okinawan Karate and how to apply it to modern day self protection needs.
We believe in Accountability, Professionalism, and Safety. 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.
