What a great place to learn Shizoku. Sensei Chris has a wealth of knowledge and experience. His passion to share these shines through in his teaching. Fully recommend to any children or adults who want to learn some great techniques and to have fun doing it while building self confidence and belief.

We have been thoroughly been thrilled with Shizoku and Sensei Chris. The focus on discipline, self-defence and most importantly fun has positively impacted our son's behaviour at home, as well as at school. Sensei Chris is amazing and makes the class really fun. Highly recommended!

positive review So glad we were recommended Shizoku Martial Arts for our daughter! Constantly impressed by your positivity, encouragement, and warmth with our children. Your no nonsense yet fun approach is the perfect balance. I love the family, community feel at SMA. Thank you for sharing your passion!

positive review Sensei Chris and Paula have created an amazing club where kids not only learn great skills in self defence, they are encouraged to develop life skills in respect, leadership, commitment, hard work and have a greater self worth. I can’t believe the changes I’ve seen in my son who is a more confident, determined and respectful young man which has been further developed through the Leadership program he’s now in. The vibe of the club is welcoming, encouraging and run professionally, which shows by the number of new kids we see joining all the time. Thank you!!!

Still not sure?

Don’t listen to the ‘I can’t’ in your head

Listen to ’I can!’

Because he only thing holding you back for achieving anything you want is yourself and your own doubts.
Stop doubting and start trying and see what you can achieve.
