ABOUT BBMA NORTHLAKES

Black Belt Martial Arts is so much more than kicking and punching

The Northlakes Dojo first opened in September 2014 by Sensei Chris Elder in the Lake Haven Shopping Centre Complex and relocated to new huge premises at 5 Botham Close Charmhaven in September 2016.

Northlakes Black Belt Martial Arts caters for children, adults and families in fostering skill development, a positive outlook,  inner confidence, self-discipline, fitness, and respect.

In addition to karate classes, we offer kickboxing and traditional weapons training.  

We also have a great national and international competition pathway for our students.  

The school does much work for the community by teaching at local schools, self-defence seminars for women and children and demonstrations in the public eye. All instructors, assistant instructors and staff undergo a safe working with children check to ensure our children’s safety. 

The Northlakes Black Belt Martial Arts Success Team is dedicated to helping you reach your goals.


Our Mission

To provide martial arts and life skills programs to men, women and children that educate, inspire and positively influence their lives.
In doing so we:

  • Change people, one class at a time.

  • Change communities one Black Belt at a time.

  • Change our country one martial arts academy at a time.

SENSEI CHRIS

FOUNDER

After a long career in Design & Engineering, Sensei Chris made the decision to take the big step and pursue his dream of becoming a full-time martial arts instructor and opening the Northlakes Dojo in 2014. With a passion for martial arts, he has dedicated his life to sharing this gift with his students. 

Now retired from teaching, Sensei Chris has moved to the next stage of his life, continuing his legacy of passion and drive outside of the dojo. 

We are indebted to his vision and commitment to propelling BBMA Northlakes to our present position in the industry. Sensei Chris' work has assured BBMA Northlakes' future success.

BBMA North Lakes is AWESOME. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It is a wonderful atmosphere. My daughter has been attending the Tiny Dragons class since October last year and she has learnt so much and absolutely loves it.  I can't speak more highly of them!
