Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a combat sport from the many martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. Muay Thai, like boxing and various forms of kickboxing, is recognized as a very effective striking base within MMA, and is very widely practiced among mixed martial artists. Many techniques associated with Muay Thai are often seen in MMA, such as punches, elbows, clinch fighting, high kicks, leg kicks and knees.

BJJ / Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self-defence system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defence.


MMA is a class focussed on Mixed Martial Arts for sport or Competition. It is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts. Black Dragon Kai teachs Sport MMA to students with an emphasis on the current unified rules of Mixed Martial Arts as used by the UFC (Ultimate Fightng Championship).

Freestyle Wrestling

Freestyle Wrestling, like collegiate wrestling, has its greatest origins in catch-as-catch-can wrestling and, in both styles, the ultimate goal is to throw and pin your opponent to the mat, which results in an immediate win. Freestyle and collegiate wrestling, unlike Greco-Roman, allow the use of the wrestler's or his opponent's legs in offense and defence. Freestyle wrestling is the most complete style of standup wrestling and brings together traditional wrestling, judo, and sambo techniques.

Self Defence

Black Dragon Kai prides itself on teaching straight to the point effective Self Defence techniques and tactics. Since 1993 the system has provided self defence instruction to community groups, shelters, primary & secondary schools as well as Life Education Qld.

Realistic and Practical Self Defence is the primary focus of the Modern Martial Arts system we teach. I takes the best parts from martial arts and then applies them as a single cohesive system.

Modern Martial Arts is the answer to Self Defence.

Jissen Budo

Jissen Budo is a combat sport that combines punches, kicks, knees, elbows, throws and ground fighting; as well as a number of close quarters techniques that are often illegal in other forms of competition.

This system is incorporated in the Modern Martial Arts Program, with options for students to grade in Jissen Budo whilst training in Modern Martial Arts.
