Official and Important Announcement !

It’s time to reveal that the dojo will now have a new name. We will still have Eltham Martial Arts Academy as our Sub- heading so to speak as our history is tied there. But properly encompass what we do at EMAA and to give us a recognisable name.....I have chosen the name ‘Musubi Dojo‘. There are different translations of the word Musubi. The specific meaning and Kanji that we have chosen is that which means a union or joining - a coming together. And that’s what the dojo is to me. It’s where people of all ages, races, genders , families etc come together. It’s where we all find our differences and our commonalities together. At our’s where different Martial Arts Styles work together and learn from each other. It’s where hearts and bodies meet minds.


we provide a safe and comfortable environment to encourage you to get yourself back into training so you can move and live and breathe and be

Never miss an opportunity to train with a superstar ! Take a look who's coming to Musubi Dojo - your Dojo - on Aust day weekend !!!
Register your spot today and don't miss this !

If there's one thing I've done a lot of over this break - it's reflect. I've caught up with long time friends and let me tell you the Martial Arts bond is like no other. What's great is being able to flick through photo's and instantly be transported back to that time with those people and laugh and cry and remember those times.

To have photo's with special and important people ( sometimes you don't even know it at the time) is a treasure because those photo's are like portals to your memory bank. And let me tell you that's the gold.
Our goal in life is to deposit as much as we can to that bank - as much good as we can - because we are going to live off that for the rest of our lives.

Anyway - that was a long way to say - you should do this seminar !

I've been a member of EMAA for over a year and lost 22kg. There are big gym names in the industry but there's not personal service. That's what I love about EMAA.

Sharon Fulcher

I've been a member at EMAA for five years now and have probably saved $5,000 on chiro and osteo work that I was having on a regular basis because of a sore back.

James Taylor

I love the social aspect of EMAA. I hardly notice the training because I have so many friends to train with there. It makes training easy.
