Total Martial Arts Academy (TMA) is a local business owned and run by Drysdale Primary School parent, Jen Marsham, since 2011.
Currently around 120 local children from Clifton Springs and Drysdale area are enrolled in the TMA Kids Educational Programme. This programme teaches physical skills such as fitness and self-defence and also social skills such as confidence, discipline and respect. Learning Martial Arts is much more than kicking and punching, it’s being the best you can be in all aspects of life.
Within the last year many TMA Academy students have entered various Victoria State level competitions with great success. We currently have 19 first place Victorian Champions within the club with 35 placed second and third. At the last Victorian State Championship we were presented with the International Sports Karate Association (ISKA) pennant for the Best Team in Victoria. This is an amazing achievement for the children, TMA Academy and Clifton Springs/Drysdale.
Next stop, the World Championships 2018!
Jen strongly believes in supporting the local community and she and representatives of TMA Academy have given their time freely to local schools, nurseries, kindergartens, guides and Probus clubs promoting physical and mental health along with self-defense. The TMA Demonstration Team have also performed at various community events.
As a mum of three, Jen understands that sports activities can be very expensive so endeavours to keep term fees as low as possible, with no joining fees or tie in contracts.
“Jen has an incredibly positive disposition that has my kids looking forward to martial arts every week. She is patient, encouraging and empowering! I thoroughly recommend Total Martial Arts”
