Junior Martial Arts Classes for kids aged 8 to 12


Australian Freestyle Martial Arts (AFMA) offers an excellent Junior program developed by Principal Rick O’Brien with over 40 years of experience in teaching children.

Positive messages of discipline, compassion, tolerance, and respect are encouraged and demonstrated by Proactive instructors. Instructors are Qualified Sports Coaches with a minimum Cert III qualification, with current Working with Children Checks. Proactive Instructors are Black Belt role models who inspire juniors to be better and strive harder to achieve their goals.

Positive development

Choosing to enrol kids in AFMA Juniors has shown to contribute highly to the development of important traits such as resilience, independence, and self discipline. Classes are conveniently scheduled after school hours to allow parents to pick up the kids from school and drop them off or relax in our viewing area at the Academy.

Progressive system

Students can earn their White belt in their first few classes. AFMA Junior’s progressive grading syllabus allow students to work their own pace to gain the skills for each belt, ultimately reaching Black Belt. Each grading act as a stepping stone with each level becoming more challenging than the one before. The AFMA belt system cultivates motivation and confidence in students.

Proactive also offers RPLs (Recognised Prior Learning) for those coming from different styles to seamlessly transition into AFMA.

Proactive guidance

Proactive Self Defence offers an assertive violence awareness and prevention program including topics such as assertive body language, using a strong voice, and dealing with bullies.
