These quotes below require time to be believed, "The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer."
"Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself" - Chinese Proverb
"When the student is ready, the Master appears." - Buddhist Proverb
It is very rare to find an organization with teachers/Instructors  that take  YOUR TIME, YOUR EFFORT and  your PERSONAL GOALS  as seriously as you do. We pride ourselves on exactly that.
True Martial Arts  can only be as solid in it’s teachings yet  humble in it’s approach when the system diligently adheres to the virtues; Justice, Courage, Benevolence or Mercy, Respect and Politeness, Honesty and Sincerity, Honor, Loyalty, Character and Self-Control .  Both Instructors and students must live by these virtues to the best of their ability to allow the lessons of life skills and pure physical brilliance to be witnessed and enjoyed. It is through perseverance and undistracted determination that one will come to understand their own potential and capabilities.
Both Master Nick Donato Soke Dai, Master Ell Gatt and the Team of caring and enthusiastic Instructors enjoy this journey both teaching and training with you.
Here you will enjoy more than just a seasonal sport - it is a life art and wellness adventure no matter what art you choose to explore.



“The martial arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or a kick is not to knock the hell out of the guy in front, but to knock the hell out of your ego, your fear, or your hang-ups.”  Bruce Lee
