Self Defence

Promoting Life Enrichment Skills Through Focus Martial Arts Brisbane Self Defence Classes.

We understand the importance of our Brisbane self defence classes to provide a nurturing –safe-fun and energetic atmosphere that enables a child to learn lifelong skills that will help them navigate their way confidently through school and beyond whilst they learn to protect themselves from harm by means of self defence techniques.

Brisbane self defence classes at Focus Martial Arts will provide great enjoyment in a sociable friendly and fun environment so that your child will feel comfortable as they make new friends.  As it is important to develop a passion for learning, we will provide challenges to motivate and stimulate their learning core because if kids don’t enjoy it, they won’t stick to it and won’t learn.

What’s great too, is helping them gain confidence through a sense of achievement whilst introducing them to the joy of sport.

Personal Security Through Our Brisbane Self Defence & Martial arts.

In the same way that an adult can feel insecure in walking down a street at night, a child can feel vulnerable to peer pressure. The self discipline that our students develop resulting from our training, will provide your child with the skills and mindset necessary to resist peer pressure and also alleviates the problems of bullying.

It is not just the ability to protect your self  that we teach, we train both mind and body so your entire personality gets an overhaul.Your child may initially start with “I’m not sure I can” to fairly rapidly realize “I think I can” and eventually to “I know I can”.  Our innovative teaching includes the all important school safe and street safe components to help your child recognize bullying tactics and know how to handle them confidently. These are some of the lessons we feel every child would benefit from.
