About | Martial Fitness Australia | Point Cook Self Defence (1)

I’ve been a member of Martial Fitness Australia for 8 years, training with my two sons. We were welcomed by Allan, Kelly and knew that this was where we wanted to train in Taekwondo. Over time and after a lot of hard work and perseverance, I achieved a personal goal and was awarded my black belt. Not satisfied with this, I have since gained my 3rd Dan and I am an accredited referee.

For the past 5 years, you would have also seen me on the mats training our wonderful members: from the smallest Peewees to the biggest Seniors. I am so proud watching them achieve their goals and face their challenges. I absolutely love teaching all aspects of Taekwondo, from traditional striking and kicking through to self defence, but my favourite has to be Poomsae!

BIO The team at Martial Fitness Australia makes a constant effort to continually learn and update the Academy’s curriculum with new and innovative ways of instructing.

This creates a dynamic and ever-evolving martial arts system that combines the knowledge of a diverse range of martial arts disciplines with a progressive and effective curriculum.
