J's Gym Martial Arts Academy
J’s Gym Martial Arts Academy began in 2006 in a small school hall. The constantly expanding non-profit Academy now commands its own facility and purpose designed equipment, plus accommodates a range of classes, from strength and conditioning, personal training, to Dutch style Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Over the last eleven years the Academy has had the pleasure to train multiple NZ and Oceania champions as well as observe participants grow and gain individual character strengths that are subsequently applied outside the gym.
Participating in a sport such as martial arts, provides not only a physical outlet and helps to improve peer respect, but also develops characteristics such as self-discipline, focus and confidence. The requirement to step out of personal comfort zones into a boxing ring fosters maturity and independence of thought. The J’s Gym expectations of both reliability, and enthusiasm, towards the task at hand, encourage a tenacious attitude. These are necessary fundamentals for any community leader.
The Martial Arts Academy provides a safe, clean and energetic environment which welcomes individuals of all ages interested in alternative forms of physical exercise.
