Cobra Martial Arts & Fitness Centres
Offering a last line of defence against many of life's major threats!

“We all stand on the front lines of a war that threatens the lives of every man, woman and child today. The enemy includes such threats as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, stroke, AIDS, gang membership, bullying, smoking, drinking, drug use, low self esteem, mental disorders, depression, suicide, insufficient exercise, improper diets, school dropout and a lack of goal setting & achievement skills.

Proper martial arts schools such as Cobra, that still teach traditional values, life skills and character development, are some of the only places remaining within our society today, where self discipline, self control, self confidence and self belief – the weapons needed to defeat these enemies - are still being taught.“

Dear Craig,

It is now four years since my son Cameron and I started training at Cobra and I can honestly say that it is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. At the age of 39 in 2000, I was not exercising regularly, I felt unfit and I didn’t feel good about my self-image. Cameron at age 12, had just moved to high school, found himself being a small fish in a big pond and was experiencing some bullying by larger boys.

The first thing that impressed me about Cobra was the discipline shown and the respect given by the students in the children’s classes, towards the teachers and instructors. This was a huge contrast to the many sports Cameron had been involved in up to that time and even today.

I was amazed at the first Cobra lesson that Cameron attended, when all the children ran to form a straight line and stood at attention within seconds of a simple command from the instructor. After I heard them discuss the Master’s Message with the instructor, being ‘Respecting Elders’ and  then recite the 9 tenets of Cobra being ‘Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit, Sound Body, Sound Mind, Sound Spirit and Self Mastery’, I was firmly convinced that Cobra was the right decision for both myself and my son.

During these four years Cameron has grown into a very likeable young man that any father would be proud of. He is no longer subjected to bullying at school, is respected among his peers and stands up for his friends when needed. My whole body shape has changed, I feel a lot stronger, my posture and flexibility has improved incredibly and I feel much better about myself.

Cameron has developed better core body strength and balance through training at Cobra, which has increased his confidence.  He has since won champion boy for swimming, cross country and athletics last year, as well as being nominated as best player in the finals series Aussie Rules Football for Vic Park Raiders 15’s team.

I believe that Cobra has brought our family closer together in many ways. Cobra is a valued member of our community, bringing many families together in the same way it has for us. Cobra has a very positive influence on the local youth, keeping them off the street, building their self-confidence, character and respect for law and order.

Yours Sincerely,

Michael Smart

Dear Craig

On behalf of myself and my wife Emily, we would like to take this opportunity to write and thank you very much for the effect your academies’ martial arts has had on our families lives.

As owners of a Pawnbroking business in the area, and raising a family of four children, we find that we work relatively long hours. As a family, we enrolled at Cobra to keep a balance of physical (especially for our children who are exposed to television and video gaming machines), along with the prospect of learning a valuable skill of self defence.

What we found as a family is a whole lot more! Our children have developed a greater level of self control, respect and confidence which has emanated through their schooling and greatly improved their interaction with their peers. I found this effect so profound that I started the program as a volunteer instructor for Cobra. I too have had the pleasure passing this onto other students. It pleases me to now see the changes in many of the schools’ students over a period of time.

I feel Cobra’s teaching and focus on self respect and discipline greatly helps our community and also provides the students with a valuable life skill which will put them in good stead for their future career paths. I find it commendable that you’ve struck the right balance of students from all races, ages and socio economic backgrounds, so that with the school’s teachings, they all have the opportunity to progress to the maximum of their own potential.

I hope to be involved with the school for many years to come...

Kind Regards,

Bruce Stockdale
