GLMA Classes


Newtown (GLMA) Martial Arts

A club that functions in the inner west and CBD promoting Martial Arts values like Personal Growth, Safety, and Skill Development .

The Martial Arts Syllabus we offer is is mixture of kung fu ,kickboxing, karate and is flexible enough to allow students to compete in sparring, weapons competitions as well as learning traditionally based defence moves for your personal safety.

To progress Newtown Martial Arts measured competencies in the form of gradings (exams) to test their skills. The Grading syllabus takes students to a Black Belt level and beyond. This is a commitment in a more formal way. By the time you finish a kickboxing course you will know if you are interested or not.

Doing the 4 week kickboxing course gives you a great preview to allow you to see what is offered. People with a martial arts background tend to join immediately as the club offers a lot for a very reasonable price.
