Today’s realisation

When we were younger, life seemed easier. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be.
But the only difference is that we’re older, and the older we get, the harder we make things for ourselves.
We blame others, work, kids, our partners and the universe itself for our hard life.
But you should sing your own song, write your own destiny; health & happiness is in the palm of your own hands.

Testimonial – Michael and Marlean Fogarty


Firstly both my wife and I want to express our gratitude to you and your wonderful team of martial arts teachers. Ethan, who has always wanted to learn a martial arts of some description, is thoroughly enjoying his CMA experience and we also are enjoying his dedication and focus during lessons. Nathan, Marty and you have been a big influence on his enjoyment and commitment during classes. There is also a young girl instructor, Bliss. This girl is a natural born teacher. The children respect her, they listen, they obey. She is clear in her instructions, explains basics in a concise, uncluttered manner and is always looking for positive things to say to her charges. As an experienced classroom teacher of over 35 years, I have had the privilege of taking many student teachers and the types of qualities Bliss naturally displays, are exactly what a mentor teacher is looking for. They are GOLD in the teaching profession. Good teachers are born, not made. She is a natural!!

Please pass this on to the rest of the team …… they deserve accolades for a job well done.

Dear parents and/or Guardians

How Can You Help

When a student in our school accomplishes their first kick or punch, they begin to build confidence. They have to be persistent, practice and stick to it to get
better. At times, they may get frustrated, angry and even feel bad, but we do what we can to help them understand that their persistence is going to pay off.

As a parent, you can instill this same feeling of not only self-confidence, but self-esteem. Don’t do everything for your children; help them accomplish things themselves. Give them some age appropriate chores to do. Initially, they may not enjoy it, but they will feel great after it’s complete and see how happy and proud you are of them.

Allow them to fail at some things so that they can |continue working for a successful outcome. Teach them it’s ok to make a mistake sometimes if they learn how to correct it.

Help them recognize their great qualities and how
important it is to not only use them, but share them.


“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”

— Henry David Thoreau
