The Academy dojang is an inclusive space, where individuals of any race, age, or gender can enrich themselves and build lasting friendships through their dedication to the Art.
Instructor Ben has a Certificate 3 & 4 in fitness and teaches ITF Taekwon-Do, which utilizes the scientific application of dynamic movements to enable fast and powerful techniques; in particular the spectacular and devastating kicks which are the signature of the Art.

- Practical and effective self-defense, including non-violent verbal response techniques, situational awareness, locks, holds and throws;
- Cardio-vascular fitness;
- Flexibility and joint strengthening; and
- Hand techniques and footwork for inevitable situations where kicking is not possible
Additionally, as the Academy is affiliated with United ITF Taekwon-Do Australia, and all gradings are presided over by internationally recognized examiners from 3rd to 8th degree black belt.
Grades obtained at the Academy are legitimate and will be recognized in ITF dojangs anywhere in the world.
