Our Team




(Head Coach)

I have been involved in Martial Arts my whole life, starting my training off with Taekwondo as a young kid. Since then I have been fortunate enough to train and learn from some great and legendary Martial Artists.

Some of the styles that I have trained and competed in are Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pankration, Submission Wrestling, Sambo, Crazy Monkey Defence, Floro Fighting Systems, Freestyle Wrestling, Boxing, Catch Wrestling and Muay Thai, at both State and National Levels. I believe in a holistic approach to Martial Arts training to be able to reach its full benefits and achieve that balance in life.

I am passionate and committed to helping my students achieve their goals and being the best coach that I can be. I truly believe that with hard work, dedication and commitment anything can be achieved.

I look forward to working with you soon.



(Assistant Instructor)

Ruben started his Martial Arts trainig at a young age with Karate. He would take a break from Martial Arts to focus more on competitive soccer during his late teens, where he was a star goal keeper.

After suffering an injury he discovered our Dojo and his old passion for Martial Arts training. Five years later and he has never looked back. Ruben has also trained in some of Canberra's top BJJ and Thai Boxing gyms while living there. Upon his return to Sydney he expressed his interest in coaching and helping the next generation at our school.

A natural and very talented instructor, Ruben brings easy to understand analogies and concepts that make him a beginnner's favourite choice.




Christina has been playing competitive soccer from the age of 9. She has been learning and training in Kickboxing for the last few years taking like a fish to water.

She is an asset to the kid's program and brings a wealth of knowledge in team building for the little one's. Christina is also a side line reporter/commentator for the sports radio and the Western Sydney Wanderers, where she has a vital role.

(Instructor in Training)

I've been doing Martial Arts for 7 years, starting off with Wing Chun and then eventually finding myself at A's Dojo. The diverse range of Martial Arts has allowed me to experience fighting styles such as boxing, kickbxoing, wrestling, pankration and even on occasions yoga. 
Training Martial Arts has allowed me to gain more self-confidence, improve my physical and mental well-being and gain a great group of friends. 

All of which is great when you have to deal with the monotony of sitting at a desk from 9 to 5.




I've been involved in Martial Arts for the greater part of a decade. Starting off as a young kid following his brothers in the realms of Taekwondo.
I have been training at A's Dojo for six years after finding it through a friend. Diving into a wide variety of Martial Arts, I have found a true passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the art of putting 'everything together' Pankration (MMA).

I have been fortunate to learn from some of the best in the business including living legends Royce Gracie, Cleber Luciano and Chris Haueter.
