Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be fit for this?

There are zero fitness requirements to be able to start our classes. One of the benefits is that you WILL get fitter, faster and more athletic.

Our students start at all different fitness levels, and much of what we teach relies on technique and timing rather than strength, speed, or athleticism, however, one of the benefits is that you WILL get fitter, faster and far more athletic.

What do I need to bring to my first martial arts lesson?

For your first class (trial) we recommend comfortable sporting attire, preferably with no zips or pockets for safety. Ideally a rashguard and shorts.

When you have decided you want to join, we have a shop on the premises for you to purchase the training attire you will need.

Be sure to bring a water bottle to your martial arts classes, as you will be working up a sweat!

I'm not very sporty or coordinated, will that be a problem?

Not at all. In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes felt the exact same way. There is absolutely no experience necessary for any of our beginner classes, and there is no sparring amongst beginners, so you're going to be safe and have a great time!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at what your body is capable of, and how much you can improve! Our certified Martial Arts instructors are trained to keep their teaching simple, effective, and beginner-focused. So even the most uncoordinated person will develop 'ninja-like' skills! Come see for yourself!

Will my child become a bully?

Through our years of coaching, we have seen that confident kids make for more compassionate kids. We teach children how to not only stand up to bullies for themselves, but how to stand up for others.

We teach all of our children about Rules of Engagement. This provides Red and Green Lights for when they can respond physically and when they just need to use their words and other strategies.

When they do need to resort to physical Self-Defence, we do not just teach children to punch and kick as many martial arts do. We empower our kids with grappling skills from Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, along with striking skills from Boxing and Kickboxing.  This gives our kids the ability and confidence to neutralise, defend, control, and negotiate if possible.

Given that most fights end up on the ground in Wrestling Matches (Particularly kids school assaults), we believe this better prepares your children for the reality of violence, whilst giving them the option of how they respond.

Do you offer an option for competition?

We certainly do. We have a small but very successful Brazilian jiu Jitsu Competition Team.

We offer the best and most successful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coaching team in the area. We have trained numerous people to become Victorian and Australian National Champions. If you or your child wants to compete, speak to one of the coaches and we will start you (or your child) on the path to competition success.

Do you have private lessons?

Yes, private lessons are available by appointment.

Private lessons are great for those who want to gain experience before joining into regular classes, or for anyone who has special needs or is unable to attend the scheduled class times

This gym is wonderful! The atmosphere is so welcoming and friendly, a real sense of community and involvement, and most of all FUN! Everyone I've met and trained with has been incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend coming down and giving it a go.

- Sam Sherrington

Three of my boys train here (14, 12, & 8) and the 6 year old is now begging me to do it too! The coaches are fantastic, great with the kids. The training is both useful and enjoyable and the boys love it. I thoroughly recommend to any parent wanting to grow resilient, confident kids.

Training with Phoenix is one of the greatest things I’ve done. I’ve made incredible friendships, learned to defend myself through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the coaches are phenomenal. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly that they feel more like family than just a team. If you join up, you won’t regret it!
