The Ballarat Dojo is your school of martial arts.
Through practice of Karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, The Ballarat Dojo provides the opportunity for you and your family to learn real martial arts and self defence in a fun, safe and respectful, yet challenging environment. With a philosophy based on traditional martial arts principles, and a training methodology developed for a modern context, we are here to help you along the paths of personal growth, physical development and effective self defence.There are no secrets or hidden techniques, our curriculum is designed to give you the most complete instruction possible, showing you not only the how, but also the why.
We believe that the martial arts are not simply about developing your proficiency with punching, kicking and grappling. Our primary goal for you in your training is not to be better than the person next to you, but rather to be better than you were yesterday. To be stronger, calmer, happier and more confident; to see yourself grow both physically and mentally.
The Ballarat Dojo caters to all ages and levels of experience, from raw beginners who want to make friends and improve their fitness, to more experienced martial artists wanting to further build on their current foundations.
