Cobra Martial Arts - The 'True' Martial Art

Cobra Martial Arts and Fitness Centres have been teaching beginners for over 30 years. Through our unique, holistic approach, we witness life changing transformations within our students in areas such as:


Physical health, toning, strength, flexibility, health of internal organs, ability to protect oneself and loved ones.  


Mental wellness, happiness, fulfilment, self confidence, motivation, goal setting, achievements, friendships, positive mindset from a positive environment, teachings and people. 


Spiritual wellness, life direction and purpose, desire to help other students, people and the community, gratitude for all one has been given, prosperity and abundance in all areas of life.  

You are not expected to be 'in shape', fit, nor flexible to begin training in the Cobra Martial Arts beginner classes. It is OUR job, to work with you, gradually improving your health, fitness and self defence capability. As a beginner it is important that you participate at your own pace and only increase your intensity as your fitness improves.

Offering the 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, 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."

Cobra Martial Arts and Fitness Centres - Established 30 Years!​


Cobra Martial Arts & Fitness Centres are some of the few, original, long-standing and stable martial arts schools in Western Australia. Martial arts schools are opening and closing down regularly in Perth, however Cobra has stood the test of time and is growing stronger every year, with firm plans already in place for the next 30 years.

Over the past three decades, our highly qualified team of 20 instructors, have become experts at helping local people and families with their fitness, health, weight loss, self-defence capability, self-respect, discipline and confidence. We GUARANTEE to get you into shape and to teach you how to defend yourself, if you commit to the program and you may even be surprised to learn some possibly unexpected skills, such as how to enjoy your life more and achieve your dreams. 


Besides the obvious physical benefits of Cobra Martial Arts training, students report constantly, that their life, including home life, family life, work/career and school/education performance, have also improved, as part of the Cobra Martial Arts training process. Improved self-discipline and the learning of goal-setting skills learned through the program, will help you more than you may realise in other areas of your life, such as if applied to family, career, education, finance and investment.

Surround yourself with positive and motivated people who are achieving their dreams and going places and you will be swept along with us! If it is to be - It is up to me (you!).
