How we stand out

Our owners Colin and Sam and James are heavily involved in teaching and running JMA, this means they are able to run the business the way they want to.

JMA is customer and results focused. Too many Martial Arts Studios are only in it for the money. We spend the time looking for ways to value add and give each customer an exceptional experience.

We teach our way. and we are serious about the type of role models the JMA team are to our students!

How we stand out

To inspire the students and nurture their leadership abilities, we have a ranking system. Participants take their position seriously and they are given the opportunity to level up. For each belt level, students must complete more than just their Martial Arts training. This allows them to not only become a brilliant black belt… they become a great person in all aspects of their lives.

We know our philosophies are different to other Martial Arts Studios. Our students are outstanding members of the community and are loving respectful.

Our Mission Statement

At Joondalup Martial Arts our Mission is to make a positive impact in the lives of our students, their families and the community. We aim to provide a safe space for students to be challenged, to grow, to set goals and achieve them. Inspiring students to be leaders in their own lives and to live a life of purpose.

What our
members say


It is really common for children to feel shy and wary of new things and entering a martial arts club can be intimidating, lots of new faces, loud noise and something they may not have seen before. We have full time coaches, assistant coaches and our leadership team all very good at working with shy students. If your child just wants to watch the first class that is fine too and we encourage parents to bring children a few times to help children feel safe and comfortable and in no time they will be asking to come to class!
Little Tigers is our youngest class and starts at 3 years old. We have members ranging in age from 3 – over 60
No. At JMA we have never had contracts, we understand that some people are committed on their black belt journey and others are looking to try a variety of sports.
Absolutely, very quickly they will grow in confidence making them less likely to be targeted and within months they will develop skills that will help them stay safe if they are.
Absolutely, the programs are reward based (belts and tagging system) which keeps them focused. Children love praise and to be rewarded for their hard work. The instructors are terrific at motivating the kids and harnessing a child’s natural energy levels to get the best out of them
We have OT referrals all the time. We work with a variety of children who are working with OT’s for many different reasons and all see dramatic improvements.
Absolutely not! One of the first rules we cover is there is no kicking and punching other people. We teach kids (and adults) self-defense as a tool for personal growth and development. Kids learn to treat others as they want to be treated. We also teach them how to react in situations in a non-violent manner. If a child is already acting out in a physical way before they start training with us parents will usually see a complete change in behaviour once the child has started training with us. They learn to respect others and not to use violence as a tool.
