At present there is one class per week. Classes run from 8am to 11am each Sunday morning at Bowen Hills YMCA Fitness, 95 Abbotsford Road, Bowen Hills. Contact us for details.


Students contribute dues within the school to cover our insurance, hall hire and operating expenses.

In the rare event of surplus funds after meeting all our expenses, proceeds are re-invested in the school in the form of school training gear, research, teaching and promotional materials and events.


To train with us the only requirements are that you are:

  • 18 years of age or more
  • healthy enough to participate in a physical activity
  • mindful of your own and your training partners’ safety
  • Prepared to bring enthusiasm and a sense of humour.


Classes are held at Bowen Hills YMCA Fitness, 95 Abbotsford Road, Bowen Hills. There is parking available on the streets and Bowen Hills train station is approximately 1 block away by foot.


We all have to start somewhere, and in our school beginners are always welcome to come along at any time to observe or participate in an obligation free class at no expense. The best time to start training is, however, at the start of a term of training with a particular weapon. Contact us for details.
