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.

A little bit about Kosta:
Kosta Skrapis, aged 21, local to the Wollongong area NSW, has this year been inducted to the International Sports Karate Association, Hall of Fame, recognising Kosta as “Best New Talent”.
Pairing with one of his students, Ozkan Ismail, they have now made quite an impression the video sharing platform ‘Youtube’, through their Martial Arts and Tricking videos.

“Originally we decided to post them up just to showcase our skills and how we went at competitions. We started receiving lots of comments to post more videos up, so we kept doing what we loved.” Kosta explained.

With 6 videos featured on their producers page, ‘OffTap Productions’ the views have begun to sky rocket with recent videos combining to a total over 100,000 views in their first month.

“It is so exciting seeing how far we have come. I love Martial Arts and can’t wait to see where it takes us in the future.” Says Ozkan.

In the first week of Ozkan’s promo teaser release, it recieved 30,000 views alone.
Ozkan has also traveled Australia and taken out numerous State, National and World titles for Extreme Weapons and Extreme Forms.

Recently, both Kosta and Ozkan have been approached by producers to feature in music film clips for both ‘Justice Crew’ and X Factor finalists, ‘Fourtunate’.

“They are able to offer a new level of skill and raise the intensity in the breakdown for our film clip. As soon as we saw the boys online we knew we wanted them to feature in our clip.” Fourtunates PR Manager, Emily Dodd explained.

Kosta is also the Martial Arts school owner of the well-known gym, KMA Wollongong.

A Testimonial for Combined Martial Arts

Dear Bill,

I would like to say thankyou for operating such a fine establishment. My grandson, Kevin Taylor, joined your Academy in February, this year. I admire the way you address each and every child; you are so excited talking with each student and you exude so much energy and vitality. I am so very grateful that you are guiding Kevin in his values and behaviour. He has spoken about being a helper in  the future, and even an instructor.

Thankyou for being the shining light in my family. We will all benefit from your teachings and inspiration.

Regards and admiration,  Kathy Hall.
