Welcome 2022! If you haven't already collected your magnetic timetable at front desk please make sure you do so at your first class back. If you haven't seen it yet, it should be just above this section, go and download it to your phone now!


In order to get the best out of all our students, we have decided to split the classes into different levels. Please read the below descriptions of each.


Ninjas - There are no changes to the Ninjas curriculum classes. They are best suited for 3-5yr olds. All belt ranks can participate in any of the Ninja classes.


Samurai - We have split the classes into Beginner and Intermediates for this age group. This way students will be able to focus more on their specific belt techniques and have more time with the instructors.

Beginners is for White, Yellow, Orange and Green belt students

Intermediate is for Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Red and Black belt students.


Warriors - This age group has 3 new beginner classes, 3 new intermediate classes, 1 mixed level class and 1 new advanced class.

Beginners is for White, Yellow, Orange and Green belt students

Intermediate is for Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Red and Black belt students.

Advanced is for Brown, Red and Black belt students ONLY

Mixed is suitable for all ranks.


Higher belt students are allowed to participate in the Beginners classes. They can help out by partnering with new students, or simply join in to refine the bread and butter techniques and refresh on the lower belt curriculum. Higher belt student will have to remember they are training with beginners, so there will be no takedowns, submissions, patterns or sparring in theses classes.

Dear Fellow Martial-Arts friends,

Just thought I’d share some exciting news for next year. From Thursday 6th January I’ll be teaching a regular weekly class of our brand Ittoshinkan Jujutsu out of a new local full-time training facility in Morayfield operated by Corey Greenwell & Taylah Boultbee of My Martial Arts

I’d like to thank Corey & Taylah for the opportunity and look forward to cultivating a fruitful relationship moving forward as we share a portion of martial journey together.


About Ittoshinkan Jujutsu

Jujutsu is the Japanese term that refers to a variety of unarmed martial practices. It is most often known for its techniques for joint manipulation, throwing and ground wrestling.


The jujutsu method taught through the Ittoshinkan reflects a variety of ancient and modern traditions, including Yoshinkan Aikido, Kodokan Judo and Brazilian Ju-jutsu. Sadly, today there is too much emphasis on staying on the ground and playing the 'game', focusing on submissions; something more engineered towards competitive success.


Whereas at Ittoshinkan our approach is simple; learn to survive the assault, control and gain dominance over your opponent, submit only if appropriate to do so, and manoeuvre back to your feet as quickly as possible to a safer position.

All techniques included in the curriculum are those that have proven most effective in varying situations [street & competition], and work against opponents of differing size and strength, in short, they will work on anyone. Students learn and progress through various ranges of combat including; the stand-up clinch, throws and takedowns, restraint techniques, escapes, submissions, ground n pound and No-Gi grappling.


Underpinned with strong etiquette and focus on developing high moral standards in our students.

We are looking forward to Jasons first class on Thursday the 6th of January. We encourage all our adults to come down, meet Jason and give his class ago! You can bet Corey will be on the mats training every Thursday!
