I am not very fit, will I be able to keep up with the classes? And which is the best session time for beginners?


Yes our classes cater for beginners, the very fit and the soon to be fit. All exercises in the class are timed, so you do what you can.
As you go to more classes your fitness level will improve and you will find yourself doing more in the time given. If you want to be pushed let the instructor know and they will get you going!




I want to improve my technique, do instructors work closely with us to ensure we are kicking and punching correctly?


If you are wanting additional and continued input into improving your technique, please just let the instructor know and they will work closely with you to make improvements as they go around.

We also provide private lessons outside class times if you wish to have specialist attention and improve further, just mention your interest to your instructor for more info.




Is one session a week enough to lose weight and improve my cardio?


More sessions are obviously better; we recommend a minimum of two classes per week for best results.




What do I need to bring for my first session?


Please wear comfortable clothing such as gym workout gear, thongs for going off and on the matt (we train in bare feat), a water bottle, and a small towel to dry off.

Kids classes; please wear a black t-shirt or ask to borrow one of our spare uniforms.

If you would like to purchase a uniform please see our friendly staff.

We accept students from age 4yrs+ for kids classes.

If you child is under 4yrs, please contact us with your interest to join our waiting list and we will contact you after their 4th birthday.

What if I need to drop my child off and come back after class, is that ok?

What is Taijutsu?


Taijutsu is our studio name which literally translates to "body technique". At Taijutsu we practice MMA (mixed martial arts) as a hybrid training system which is inspired from arts such as Kickboxing, Judo, Wrestling, BJJ/Jiu Jitsu, Ninjutsu, Boxing, and Primal Movement. Taijutsu ensures that you're training the full package of striking, throws, and ground techinques, ensuring you become a well rounded martial artist.
TECHNIQUES YOU WILL LEARN - Effective striking techniques - Blocking and counter movements - Throws, takedowns, sweeps - Joint locks - Restraint holds - Chokes - Ground defences - Pressure points and vital areas - Situational awareness - Agility, speed, power, flexibility, and strength training - Self defence concepts - Protection of others - Meditation - Safe sparring - Participation in competitions is optional PHILOSOPHY MIND - Enhancing your education and knowledge BODY - Developing your body to operate at it's peak performance SPIRIT - Unlocking your unlimited human potential




I missed a class, can I have a refund on my membership?


Our simpified membership arrangements allow for our students to make payments via a weekly direct debit instead of a large upfront cost for an entire term or year like other martial arts schools do and this makes it much easier on families to manage their finances.
As part of this amortised arrangement, the membership payments are ongoing; just like a gym membership, if a service is missed there is still a charge associated.




Are you open over holiday periods?


Classes operate all year round, including school holidays; we do however close for approximately two to three weeks over Xmas.

If a class falls on a public holiday, we will be closed for that day also.




Are you open during COVID lockdown?


We will follow government instruction during this time and will do our best to continue classes wherever possible. We very much appreciate your support during these times and understand that some classes will be missed that are outside of our control. It's recommended that students continue to train via our video content via our social media channels, YouTube, and live Zoom training sessions.




Can I pause my membership payments?


You may suspend your membership for a minimum of 2 weeks at a time and cannot exceed twelve weeks per year. A suspension must be completed via email to info@taijutsu.org at least 7 days prior to when you want the suspension to commence.
