    Integrated Combat Centre

    Category: Classes and Martial Arts

    “DISCIPLINE, RESPECT, HUMILITY. IT’S ABOUT MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT AND IT BECOMES A WAY OF LIFE.” ICC is no ordinary fight club; it’s a fighting fit family of everyday people and elite champions all working together with a mutual respect and unbreakable bond. At ICC it’s about understanding each individual’s ability and helping them to exceed their expectations through technique (the why) and application (the how). It’s also about developing self-discipline and focus; something that its founder, David Tong, believes is transferable to everyday life. “ALL THE FACETS OF MARTIAL ARTS ARE TRANSFERABLE TO OTHER AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.”   BIRTH OF ICC The birth of ICC began with the childhood dreams and vision of David Tong, a lifelong student of martial arts. Like most kids growing up in the 1980s, he watched the classic Kung Ku movies and idolised Bruce Lee. Naturally, he pleaded for karate lessons (the only style of martial arts on offer at the time). David was a teenage karate champion who in his adult years also took up BJJ and MMA – and won many BJJ championships and MMA bouts as a result. He was also selected for an Olympic judo and boxing scholarship by the Australian Institute of Sport in [2014]. Yet David’s driving passion was growing martial arts and giving others the chance to enjoy martial arts in their own capacity. He didn’t want people to be restricted to only one martial arts style when attending a gym. As such, ICC is an all-in-one mixed martial arts combat centre with 5 styles available for everyone. It is a place where anyone from absolute beginners to professional athletes could go to learn, train and grow under one roof. “MARTIAL ARTS ISN’T JUST ABOUT THE PHYSICAL CHALLENGE; IT’S A THINKING SPORT, A CHESS MATCH WITHIN YOURSELF; STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL.”   STYLES Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Karate MMA Kickboxing JKD Concepts

    Aikido Yoshinkai NSW (AYNSW)

    Category: Classes and Martial Arts

    What is Aikido? Simply put, aikido is a Japanese martial art in which the basic principle is to utilize your opponent’s power to control them in a lock or a throw. Aikido is often referred to as the peaceful art or way of harmony. Indeed the meaning of the character Ai in aikido is to match or harmonize. In aikido we do not promote aggression nor violence. Rather than overcoming an aggressor with brute force, aikido relies on the power of circular movements, through which an opponent’s attack or momentum can be redirected against them. Aikido Yoshinkai NSW (AYNSW) was established in 2005 by Darren Friend (6th dan) & Peggy Woo (5th dan). Both Darren and Peggy trained extensively in Japan and were  aikido instructors at the Aikido Yoshinkan Hombu (Headquarters) in Tokyo for over 10 years. Their experience training in Japan, having truly immersed in aikido and Japanese culture has given them a unique insight and perspective which they bring to every class. Aiki Kids Classes The Aiki Kids program was developed in order to make aikido accessible to children. The techniques taught are simplified and made appropiate for younger people to begin their aikido training. As the students develop and gain confidence, abilty and coordination they are slowly introduced to the techniqes as they are  trained by adults. The Aiki Kids program emphasises cooperation, discipline, focus and concentration. Each class is fast paced but repeats the same basic elements ech time in different ways so that there is constant repetition and practise of basics but without the boredom. Aiki Kids is open to kids 5 years and above. Through the years we have had a number of students make the journey from Aiki Kids all the way into regular adult classes and are still enjoying training as young adults. There are a number of families training in the dojo, kids really enjoy doing aikido with their parents. AYNSW also has a teen class on Fridays. This is a bridging class preparing young people for the regular adults classes. The full aikido syllaus is taught along with practical aikido in self defence. AYNSW Aiki Kids Program Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 5.15pm-6.15pm & Saturday 10.00-11.00am Teen Class Friday 5.15-6.15pm AYNSW instructors are registered with Aikido Yoshinkai Federation, Japan. AYNSW instructors are acredited with the Martial Arts Industry Assocaition(MAIA), the peek acreditaion body for martial arts in Australia. All instructors have Working With Children checks. AYNSW Chief Instructor, Darren Friend Shihan teaches most classes on the schedule. AYNSW is a full time dojo, the training floor has been purposefully made to ensure student safety. Aiki Kids can be joined at anytime. Students can attend once a week or more often as their schedule allows. Contact AYNSW for more details or to arrange a free trial lesson.

    Mandarin Stars – Ultimo

    Why Learn Mandarin? Your Child’s Future! Mandarin has emerged as the new must-have language. Parents worldwide are realising that fluency in Mandarin gives their children an advantage. Professor David Crystal, one of the world’s foremost language experts, advises ‘People who used to be able to make their way in the world as monolingual English speakers are now finding that they’ve got to compete with people who are genuinely multilingual’. In just five years, the number of people learning Mandarin worldwide has soared to 30 million. China – a rising world economic power By 2027, China is projected to overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy. Already China is Australia’s largest import and export trade partner, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Dr. Jane Orton from The University of Melbourne states in her report on Chinese Language Education in Schools that China is to Australia: A regional neighbour Its largest trading partner A rising world economic power A major source of immigrant workforce A major source of international students A major source of tourists to Australia A major destination for Australian tourists The source of its biggest immigrant settlers A country with a long and prestigious culture Home to 1 in 5 human beings on the Earth Mandarin in Australia ‘Students want to sign up for it; parents are asking for it; communities are asking for it.’ That’s what Brett Lovejoy of the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages reports. Here in Australia, there is growing demand from parents and the business community to encourage more children to learn Mandarin. Many articles and experts recommend that every child under the age of 15 years should learn Chinese, as speaking the language is key to understanding the complex cultural and political nuances of doing business in and with China. If you would like to read more articles and research on when and how to teach your child Mandarin, please take a look at some of the independent articles posted on our blog and website here. Sow the seeds for your child’s future fluency in Mandarin – Enrol in Mandarin Stars today! Why teach Mandarin to my child now? By exposing your child to Mandarin lessons at an early age, you can lay the foundations for fluency in Mandarin as they grow and develop. Kids have an incredible ability to learn languages at a young age. The ability to effortlessly absorb a new language begins to decline by age six, according to Robert DeKeyser, a professor of second-language acquisition at the University of Maryland. Dr Robyn Moloney, a senior lecturer at Macquarie University, notes that research shows ”second-language learning increased cognitive power, divergent thinking and creativity, enhanced literacy ability in the first language and communicative abilities”. Dr Moloney says children have the ability to understand and use a second, third or fourth language without inhibition, without confusion and, ”with a beautiful accent”. This innovative Mandarin Stars program inspires a positive attitude towards a new linguistic community that is ultimately central to Read more [...]

    Dance Street

    Category: Classes and Dance

    Dance Street focuses on fun, fitness & technique. It is important to me that students have fun at my school & feel like they are in a safe environment. We like to create a family atmosphere, respect for students and teachers in kind. Fitness is important to all ages and incorporating dance into a fitness routine develops co-ordination, is a great cardio workout and can help maintain a healthy weight. I believe that children and teenagers participating in extra-curricular activities perform better at school, are more focussed and are more confident. Technique is extremely important at dStreet, whilst having fun & being fit are great, technique is what creates safe dance practice, eliminating injuries and making special dancers. Dancers who respect and learn proper technique, have wonderful core body strength, beautiful posture & a knowledge of dance that is hard to match. Dance Street is in its early stages of development but has grown already with a great group of students from Toddlers through to Adults. It is very important to me that we create an environment that is kind and non-judgmental of others across all age groups, which will hopefully translate into people’s everyday lives. All of our teachers are fully qualified and have undergone studies and examinations so that we have proper teaching knowledge that is technically correct and importantly, safe. Having over 20 years of teaching expertise and previously owning and operating a school, you can be sure that you’re getting quality teaching, a safe, fun environment & experience that’s hard to find! So come on down to Dance Street! Rachel Dunne Fuga
