Why join the
jayu family?

At Jayu, it's not about how good the instructors are.
It's about how good they make you.


We focus strongly on fitness as a foundation for your body and mind to help accept the challenges of learning the new, and eventually more complex, techniques that you will discover throughout your martial arts journey.

You can go your whole life never having to defend yourself.

So why bother doing martial arts?

Well, beyond the fitness and self-defence, here are a just a few reasons:  

The above benefits are encouraged through or six tenets:

Modesty | courtesy | integrity | self control | perseverance | indomitable spirit

And, it is echoed by our Jayu Martial Arts Academy Slogan:

“Through Personal Development You Can Achieve Freedom, Balance and Harmony!”

Jayu is the Korean word for freedom. 
The Phoenix at the centre of the logo represents the personal development a student undergoes, while the yin and the yang symbol in the background reflects balance and harmony.

At Jayu we proudly boast about our students’ achievements outside the Academy. 
Did you know many of our students have been Dux of their schools, or school captain, or on the school student representative council?  We have students that have received their school’s Academic Achievement Award, Citizenship Award, Sporting Achievement Award and countless other academic and sporting achievements.

At Jayu, whilst we follow a World Federation Taekwondo syllabus.
That said, we also believe in drawing influence from other disciplines, whether it be Karate, Kickboxing, Kung Fu, Judo, Jui-jitsu, Aikido, Hapkido, Boxing and also Tai Chi.

Our students travel to train with us.
Our current and previous students have travelled from various areas to access the flexibility in our training schedules.  Those areas include – Blackman’s Point, Ballengarra, Bonny Hills, Cooperabung, Crosslands, Innes Lake, Kendall, Kew, King Creek, Kunderbung, Lake Cathie, Laurieton, Long Flat, North Haven, North Shore, Sancrox, Telegraph Point and Thrumster.

Are we the right fit?

Our big audacious goal is that every student that starts with us stays with us to achieve their black belt. For this to happen, just like any good relationship, it has to be a good fit. So, here are some things to consider:

Ask these 3 questions

Before choosing a martial arts academy, you need to ask yourself three things :
Is it a style that suits you?
Do the instructors suit you?
Do the training times that suit you?

Go kick the tyres!

We encourage you to go give classes a go at various academies. Most will offer you a free trial. We offer your first month FREE.
You need that time to properly assess us, and we you, to make sure it’s the right fit.

You get what you pay for

Check what your fees cover. At Jayu we track how often you train. So, if you've paid for a period of time and at its completion you haven’t used your program enough, we simply give you more time to train at no further cost.
