The Hunter Valley Martial Arts Centre at Waratah has been open for almost 3 years. It is a family operated centre, with the head instructor, Sensei Abi and her mother Shalene working at the front desk. Their synergy makes for a tightly run ship, along with their team of black belt instructors and assistants from the Leadership program. The centre has a friendly family atmosphere and there are classes to suit all ages, shapes and sizes, in Chitokai Karate, Okinawan weaponry, Xtreme martial arts and Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our instructors encourage learning and growth through self defense and there is a strong emphasis on anti-bullying.
