Learning a Martial art or self-defence is empowering. It helps you feel safe and secure, whilst giving you confidence and improved self esteem. Everyone deserves that!

Hapkido, Kinetic Fighting – Integrated Combat (KEF–IC) and Self-Defence

Centenary Martial Arts (CMA) is an Asia Pacific Self Defence school (APSD), owned and operated by a 36 year Australian Army veteran. The primary Martial Art taught at CMA is Hapkido, a Korean combat martial art. We also teach Kinetic Fighting – Integrated Combat (KEF–IC), which is set to become a major competitor to Krav Maga. KEF–IC is the civilian equivalent to the Australia Army Combative Program (ACP). We also run self-defence courses on request. Recently we went into partnership with the Centenary Community Connections to deliver FREE self-defence courses throughout the year.

Classes without the formalities

As with all APSD schools, our classes are relaxed, fun and without the formalities of traditional Martial Art schools. Our experience has shown that less formal classes achieve better results, keep students better engaged, helps raise self-esteem and confidence. We also find that the students are more inclined to take control of their own development and focus on what needs work, not what the instructor dictates.

Member of Martial Arts Australia – Certified Instructor School

Centenary Martial Arts, as an APSD school, is a member of Martial Arts Australia (MMA). MMA is a peak industry body for Martial Arts in Australia. Through MMA, CMA is a certified instructor school and therefore, must adhere to an industry code of practice and ethics of business. We are also committed to continuous quality improvement.

Chief instructor is a long serving Army Veteran

Our Chief Instructor is an Australian Regular Army of 36 years, who is passionate about self-defence and Martial Arts. Consequently, you won’t just learn a Martial Art or do a Self-Defence course, you will truly learn how to defend yourself and loved ones.

Centenary Martial Arts wants to give back!

CMA strives to build the school culture around that concept of mateship. We also love to give back to the community and those around us who make sacrifices for our benefit. That’s why we offer discounts to Veterans, serving ADF members and their families, firefighters, paramedics, ambulance workers, police and their families. In partnership with Centenary Community Connections, we also run free self-defence courses for the local community, continually throughout the year.
