ADULT MARTIAL ARTS and SELF DEFENCE
Karate is an excellent way to get fit mentally & physically

What about my level of fitness?
Physically training enhances strength, coordination, stamina, balance and flexibility. What’s more, you are learning to defend yourself whilst you exercise! Martial Arts practice trains the mind as well as the body, resulting in improved self-awareness, discipline, confidence and determination. Although at no time will you be forced to do anything you do not want to - we will encourage you to push through your perceived limits, and beyond. Karate will also test you emotionally. You will learn to control fear and anger whilst developing an ‘indominatable spirit.’ Not only will you become more confident that you can defend yourself, but your confidence to tackle all of life's trials will grow.
How long until I progress to the next 'belt?' (Gradings)
We appreciate that every person is different and will progress at a different rate, however it is important to set proper goals and achievable targets. In martial arts these goals are coloured belts – starting at white and gradually getting darker until you reach Black Belt. Every student follows a defined training programme and is provided with a ‘training pack’ detailing the syllabus expected for each grade. The syllabus is modular and takes students progressively through the entire system.
Can I train with my children?
On occasion we hold a session where parents and children train together. However, as we are sure you can appreciate, the things that can be taught to children must differ from that taught to adults. In addition the way in which children are taught and learn is different to the adults.... we are sure that most adults are not that interested it getting badges like the cubs and scouts! For this reason our adults classes are taught separately.
Learn More about Karate
Kihon translates as basic techniques which are practiced repetitively until they are mastered, and can then be applied against a partner. We do not just march up and down mindlessly tough, but work on specific skills and principles within each technique. Each basic technique is explained in detail and the reasons for doing them clearly understood.
Whilst it is useful to do techniques in the air to learn them, you eventually need to hit something to see how much power you can generate. Rather than hit each other we use pads and focus mitts. The pad drills are a great workout and an excellent stress buster!
Kata is a series of defensive and attacking movements joined together into a set form. These enable students to train alone working through set techniques and serve as a mnemonic device for learning the syllabus. All Kata are worked with a partner in realistic application. This also allows visualisation to be included whilst training alone.
Kumite is to apply techniques with a partner and has many layers of development, depending upon your grade. Kumite training ranges from pre-set training drills to more realistic self defence techniques.
Kickboxing for Adults
Mosman Martial Arts Academy Kickboxing programme is aimed at teenagers and adults of all ages. We aim to engage you in a fun and exciting workout that will leave you focused and determined to become the best that you can possibly be and take your fitness and stamina to new levels of excellence and performance.
As with all our programmes, physical benefits are matched by equally powerful mental advantages. The indomitable spirit of the committed martial artist pays huge dividends in the business world. Professionals from all walks of life recognise that strengthening their focus and perseverance gives them a huge competitive edge.
The benefits of martial arts extend to parenting as well. Understanding and modelling respect and self-discipline helps children develop these attributes. And parents that benefit from the mental balance of the martial arts mind-set are better equipped to deal with the challenges and stress that come with raising even the best of children.
But is it a good workout? Our program is a total fitness package combining strength, endurance and flexibility. We incorporate the latest exercise physiology, which assists in the development of all your muscular systems, building greater strength and definition. You get excellent cardiovascular conditioning, expanding your heart and lung capacity while you burn off calories. The result is a tremendous increase in energy and stamina to take on whatever comes your way. Each class also includes a variety of stretching exercises that help you to avoid injuries and keep you feeling young and agile.
