Our Programs & Classes
Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.
Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, KMA Brisbane offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
It is Not Your Size or Strength That Matters, Because in Brazilian Jiujitsu, If You Don’t Have It, You Can Steal It! Brazilian Jiujitsu is an art designed to help a smaller person use the force and energy of their stronger opponent against them. The philosophy is simple: If attacked, defend, get into a dominant position and get a submission (a joint lock or a choke)... as quickly as possible!
Our Brazilian Jiu - Jitsu is taught by Coach Grand Master David King under instruction and guidance of Grand Master Fari Salievski (KMA Liverpool).
So whether you want to learn effective self-defence for personal safety, for tournaments, for MMA™ or simply as a new and exciting way to stay fit & healthy, we’ll train you to effectively neutralise kicks and punches.
