What we teach

JiuJitsu - Self Defence

Tuition in JiuJitsu provides joint locking techniques, throwing, pressure points, grappling and striking. JiuJitsu could be considered a parent art form from which other martial arts like Judo, Karate and Aikido have developed. We emphasizes throwing, grappling and restraining techniques.

Judo

Judo will teach you to fall correctly with minimum injury, how to throw a person using leverage not strength and ground grappling, all using a numbered easy to remember system. Studying Judo will help you develop self discipline, individual initiative and mental alertness while physically training your body, improving your co-ordination, control and fitness. A fun, practical self defence for the whole family!

Chinese Boxing

We teach a southern style Kung Fu, Sil Lum Hung Kuen Chinese Boxing. Empty-handed set or form work, bag and mitt training as well as partnered free-exercise are all part of the class. Beginners and advanced students welcome.

Our Founder

Kancho Barry Bradshaw 10th Dan Grandmaster

Our organisation was founded by Grandmaster Kancho B.W.Bradshaw, a martial arts pioneer in Australia being one of the first All-Australian Internationally recognised 10th Dan Black belt Master's in this country (the highest Master level awarded), as well as a Hall of Fame Legend. Kancho held Master black belt ranking in several martial arts, as well as the honorific of Grandmaster in Kung Fu. He began his martial arts training back in 1946 and, over his long martial arts career, he travelled the world teaching his form of Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Kung Fu, including places such as New Zealand, America, China, and Tai Pei; as well as all around Australia running seminars, courses, lectures, and classes. Not only did he spread his teachings around the world, but he also brought several Masters to Australia, becoming friends with the likes of Grandmasters Wally Jay, Steve Heremaia, Gary Alexander,  Andersen Lin, Relson Gracie, Bernie Weiss, Harold Long, Ron Forrester, Rick Clark, and Robert Gemmell; as well as Australian Grandmasters such as Peter Morton, Jan deJong, Peter Chek, Bob Todd, Bob Jones, Peter deBeen, John Bear, and Ian Pollet to name a few.


The Bradshaw Family Trust continues Kancho's legacy of teaching JiuJitsu, Judo and KungFu in the tradition established by our founder. We are members of the Australian JiuJitsu, Judo and Chinese Boxing Federation of Instructors, and the Australia Shihan Kai.
