I started training as an 8 year old. My parents initially wanted me to learn self defense, discipline and fitness. Within a few years I started competing in kata competitions and represented Queensland several times during my childhood and teenage years. Competing gave me a lot of satisfaction and helped to build my confidence.

Builder, 3rd Dan Black Belt

We feel a lot more positive and confident about ourselves and that has made a tremendous difference in our lives, both at home and at work. We have learnt to appreciate both the martial aspect of Karate (dedication, discipline, respect and tradition) and the art aspect of it (the purpose, intensity and precision of the techniques).

Daniel Buonora

Solicitor, 2nd Dan Black Belt

I made the decision to take up karate after seeing the benefits to my daughter. I came to karate with little previous sporting experience, poor coordination and a lack of fitness. The AAMA instructors guided me to the achievement of my black belt. At AAMA I learned that I could accomplish much more than I thought.
