High School Karate Programs

BBMA has been teaching Martial Arts in Central Coast Schools for over 30 years. We have taught thousands of pre school to high school children who love learning karate and kickboxing. Along with the benefits of focus, respect, confidence and practical self defence skills.

It is well recognised the overall benefits of martial arts, however there has been numerous studies pointing towards an improvement in academic, cognitive and social development.

We offer a range of school programs including school sport, rock and water, after school programs, PDHPE/PASS, school talks, school fetes and BBMA Scholarships. Please see below for a more detailed description of each program:

“Out of all the benefits that karate has brought to my life, it played a paramount role in my HSC year. Going to karate twice a week helped me regain my energy during these demanding periods, and overall allowed me to live a more balanced life. Doing exercise, learning different skills and being part of the BBMA community allowed me to concentrate on a different aspect of my life that didn’t involve calculations, statistics or those dreaded essays.”
