    Have you ever wanted to give martial arts a go? Do you want to have a way of getting fit whilst learning useful skills such as discipline, focus and self-defence?

    Aikido Shudokan has been established since 1980 and was one of the first full-time martial arts schools in Australia. It is headed by Joe Thambu Shihan, 8th Dan, who is sought out to teach nationally and internationally and both he and the school have very well-respected reputation. We offer world-class instruction from passionate instructors who deeply care about developing students to their full potential and keeping the integrity of this art.
