At CMA we offer a variety of kids martial arts classes to Canberrans. CMA isn’t a club where kids are pushed to either be a black belt or nothing else. We believe that your child’s self-defence journey must be filled with true learning – and that includes making mistakes and learning at a pace that makes sense for them. Martial Arts learning is a culture, not something that can be picked up over-night. Our martial arts sessions to kids that align with Our Values, in the end we want to help you raise amazing people.

Tiny Tigers (3-5yrs)

The first part of our Pre-Martial Arts programs. Tinies start with learning the basics of joining a martial arts class. Wrapped in a little fun, but still incorporating skills like listening and patience.

Junior Leaders & Instructors

Kids at CMA can even learn the skills needed to get their first job! Many of our teenage students have grown with the program to now be either in training to be come an instructor, or currently assisting with classes in a paid role.

School Holiday Programs

Our Martial Arts based holiday programs are run by a variety of different Junior Instructors. The kids who join the program attend several classes each day, as well as themed days and other fun activities.

Kids Birthday Parties

We offer Martial Arts themed Birthday Parties kids aged 5yrs+ with a structure program that gives kids the time to learn some cool basic skills – as well as time for cake.

Evolved Kids Martial Arts Classes

At CMA, our Kids Martial Arts Classes and Programs have evolved along with our own Children. Our Chief Instructor started the kids program for his children to join in, since then it’s grown to over 200 kids across 4 Martial Arts Styles. The programs evolve as the kids grow and develop knew skills both on and off the mats.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Kids Martial Arts Programs are EXTREMELY popular and spots are limited. We will do our best to accommodate your children into our program and thank you for your interest.

Can I pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly?

Absolutely, we can manage your direct debit plan to suit your pay cycles – as long as you let us know when you sign-up we can set up the frequency to suit anyone’s life.

Can I pay eftpos/cash rather than direct debit?

We do not accept cash payments on site, however we do have debit card facilities. For your membership fees we don’t accept payments other than direct debit – but you’re welcome to make other purchases via card or cash on the day.

Is there any transaction fees on top of the membership?

You will not incur any additional transaction fee on top of your membership. We absorb all direct debit fees so you don’t have to. Our Direct Debit company will charge a small fee at the commencement and fees if your payments bounce, but this can be avoided if you notify us in advance if you’re having any issues.

What’s the process if I need to cancel?

We do not have unreasonable cancel policies other than providing 30 days’ notice via the Cancelation Form on our site. If you wish to cancel your service, you may do so at any time, however we do not offer any refunds on payments made.

What if I’m injured?

Our Injury policy is basically if you injure yourself, whether in training or out, we continue payments until you return to training. Then once you return, we offer the amount of time you’ve been out for free. I.E. If you’re not training for 6 weeks, on your return we set it up so you get 6 weeks free. (Alternatively you can cancel your membership and pick up training again once you’re ready).

No Lock-In Contracts

We don’t believe in contracts. We want you to stay and continue to train at Canberra Martial Arts because you love it and because you get results. If you need to exit your membership, or if you think Canberra Martial Arts is not right for you, no problems. You can cancel any time, we just ask that you give us 30 days’ notice and you’ll agreement will end – No questions asked. No hassles. We even grandfather your membership fees, which basically means unless you stop payments more that once every two years, you’ll keep the membership fee you started on – even if our prices rise.

No Sign-Up Fees

We know that getting started with healthier choices can be really tough, and many people usually fail on their promises to get fit, and some even have countless attempts to keep healthy. That’s why we don’t charge for sign up fees. We want to make your journey to starting at the gym as easy as possible.

Incredible Community And Coaches

Unlike most Martial Arts Clubs, we actually care when you can’t come in to class. You’re more than a number or another ‘customer’ to us. We are all together on this journey to become healthier and fitter, and we simply love doing life together. Come in for your first class and not only will you see our incredible community, but also feel to become one with the team and family. At Canberra Martial Arts, it’s always people first and fitness follows.
