Upon joining our community, new members receive a Martial Arts Uniform FREE of charge by paying 2 terms fees in advance, and the annual membership fee. SAVE $90!!!

Membership is paid annually and covers all students for national and international martial art affiliation, dissemination of knowledge through a network of Master Instructors, eligibility concerning official martial upgrades, discounts to seminars and special camps, and coverage on our Martial Art Student Accident Insurance Policy.

Membership fees- (compulsory) – $99 per student or $89 per student (with family discount)

Plus you receive a really cool ADA Membership Gift every year.

After signing our Training Agreement, students are committed for a minimum 6 month program. Students wishing to discontinue their training after this time will need to provide one month’s notice in writing. Students can attend regular classes or book private lessons with the coach of their choice. Both of these options have immediate advantages. Group learning reinforces martial community and teamwork, while private lessons cater to personal wants and needs at controlled adsorption rates.

Classes are segregated into age and skill level meaning class size and content are relevant to the student attendance.

Gradings are conducted on a contemporary basis. They take place at your regular training venue in class, and occur as frequently as you absorb each level’s criteria.

Gradings cost $38.00 each, with a family discount price of $33.00. Gradings that include new coloured Karate belts will cost an additional $17.00. For the intermittent gradings, we supply ribbons which are to be sewn onto the student’s belts.

Please Note: No classes are held during the Victorian State Primary School Holidays, Public holiday weekends, & when The Bureau of Meteorology announces Melbourne forecast at 35 degrees or higher.


IMPORTANT:- For the health and safety of our students and to minimise any serious risks caused by extreme weather conditions, when The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) announces Melbourne’s weather forecast at 35 degrees or higher, ALL OF OUR CLASSES THAT DAY WILL BE CANCELLED. In the event your class has been cancelled, we encourage you to attend make up lessons at any of our training locations.
