Self Defence Classes

Self Defence for Women and Men


Self-defence based on the basic fundamentals of Bujinkan Martial Arts optimises the concept of self-protection through martial training. This Martial Art deals with not only the protection of the physical body, but of the mind and spirit as well. It does not rely on speed, power, strength or techniques, but develops a way of moving that allows the practitioner to prevail. It is therefore highly effective for women and people of all ages and abilities.


Classes are run by 8th Dan Sensei Rachel Wellington who has been training in Martial Arts for the past 10 years. Sensei Rachel has travelled to Japan on multiple occasions to train with Hatsumi Sensei and the top Japanese instructors. Since 2010 Sensei Rachel has been a senior instructor at Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojos headed by 15th Dan Shihan Matthew Weygood.


Cost $20 per lesson for Members.

BAM All Stars

BAM Allstars began in 2009, when I was looking for a dance class for my son, Buster, who has Down Syndrome.  Finding there was nothing suitable for his needs, I decided to get something started, and now, 7 years on, here we are - BAM Allstars All Abilities Inc.  We are not Down Syndrome specific - we are open to people of all abilities, and ages 2.5 right through to adults.  It is our mission to continue to grow and develop new creative and performing arts programmes for people with disabilities.  The work we do is a passion and a privilege -
Lisa Murphy, founder
We currently offer weekly "BAM Allstars" dance classes and "Allstars Drama" in a number of locations, with more classes and locations envisioned for the future.  We teach modern dance technique in a fun, welcoming environment, and we provide a social framework and sense of connection which promotes friendships and community involvement. 
We offer a free trial class, so feel free to come along and try us out!  Just call or email to book in.

TaeKwonDo Self Defence



At Joon No's Taekwondo, the stream of Taekwondo we deliver is both a traditional art-form and modern Olympic sport. The global Taekwondo community boasts over 80 million practitioners in over 205 countries worldwide, making it the most practiced martial art in the world and the biggest sport, second only to FIFA Football.

In 1981 Grandmaster Joon No established Joon No's Taekwondo with a vision to impart the life-changing benefits that come with the practice of this traditional martial art. We are one of the longest running and most successful Taekwondo schools in Australia and pride ourselves on providing authentic teachings in a family-friendly environment. We believe martial arts training is invaluable as it not only encourages a healthy lifestyle and the learning of self-defence techniques but also promotes empowering life values and personal development.

Our mission for children and youth is to establish life champions by teaching the core values of respect, dedication, self-control, passion and positive outlook in an environment that is fun challenging and progressive.

Our mission for adults is to deliver effective physical workouts that will enhance fitness, teach self-defence techniques, and inspire a state of mental strength and energy. 

Our highly experienced instructors and refined learning syllabus ensures our Black Belts are some of the most knowledgeable and best trained in the industry. More importantly, graduates are fully accredited by the World Taekwondo Headquarters, which means achieving Black Belt with us is globally recognised.
