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

Sorry ladies I had to change my flight and as such - won't be back in time for Bellatrix tomorrow / Tuesday morning. Class on as per normal on Thursday. Go for a walk and do some push-ups and lunges - and leg raises instead !

Karate isn't just about kicking and punching. It's also about building strength, developing spacial awareness, and just general skills for having a functional body. So important in early and developmental years as they are formative and impact later life in many ways. Plus - standing upside down is fun !

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.
