Term starts tomorrow with normal timetable.
We have a new attendance system, we will have a tablet on the bench as you walk in. all you need to do is scroll and find your or your child's names and, click and it will enter your into the class.
This will allow me to keep track of how many classes you have had prior to grading.
I will also need a photo of each member for the system.

So for team GMAA the year of 2017 has come to an end. We have enjoyed meeting new friends on the mats, kilos lost, medals won, new belts presented and thousands of dollars raised for charity. The best thing I can honestly say is that we have changed some people’s lives in a positive manner.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of GMAA. It’s the members and family that support each other that make it’s so successful. We have some momentum going and it’s time to put the pedal to the medal. So take a break, heal some niggles and get ready smash out 2018. Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic year and have a merry Christmas and a safe happy new year.
Commit. Endure. Achieve .
See you all soon

Well what a fantastic effort from everyone.
Special mention to Debbie who did an amazing job organising the fundraising and the relay.
congratulations to all that participated in the demo and big props to those that walked many kilometres over the 24 hours. Congratulations everyone we raised over $3000.00 very proud to say not only are we changing people lives that train through martial arts but more importantly through martial arts we are changing lives! Hope this helps those in need!
last term our bjj crew had a huge turn out at the Machado nationals and after a great build up everyone did amazingly well.
Our TaeKwonDo crew has AAITF nationals on December 2nd... so this term we will be holding competition training during the kickboxing class structure. It will contain sparring specific skills such as ring craf etc. along with conditioning. Sparring every evening also... I would also like to have a Saturday session in the afternoon specific for sparring only. Times to be confirmed.
All black belts are requested to attend the tournament. And also others over the age of 12 years of age... all coloured belts are encouraged also. Along with the kickboxing classes we will also be running comp drills in TaeKwonDo to get the team ready especially for the younger kids who can’t make the later classes.
I would love a huge turnout as the comp is in Sydney. I am getting some frames and hoping to have some bags up for the kickboxing classes.
Let’s book some accommodation and make a great weekend of it.
let’s go team
Amateur boxing coming soon
