OUR MARTIAL ARTS VALUES

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT  –  Growing the potential of others by giving back

WHY LEARN A MARTIAL ART?

Everyone seems to be so busy these days and we can feel very challenged by all we need and have to focus on. Training in a martial art is not only about punching and kicking, but it teaches you all aspects of how to handle yourself in life. At Perth Soo Bahk Do we focus on improving your skillset through a traditional Korean martial art to become more focussed, full of confidence and physically stronger too.

Being able to deal with your busy life style through relieving stress, but more importantly knowing how to avoid or limit the effects of stress (the epitome of self-defence) is a the most important skill you can learn these days. Come train with us and see for yourself how to raise your confidence and become more resilient.

Our head instructor Frank Akkerboom, currently 3rd Dan, has over 20 years of experience in Korean martial arts and has trained with many senior instructors from more than 25 different countries. Our Perth Soo Bahk Do school has been running for over 20 years with our instructors having a combined experience of 150 years. We come from all different backgrounds and this provides a great variety in our teaching of martial arts.

Through learning and teaching the art of Soo Bahk Do we work towards a community of young people (and the young at heart) that:

  • Can stand up for themselves with confidence
  • Realise their own potential with humility​
  • Know the value of supporting others with leadership​
  • Can challenge themselves through discipline

MARTIAL ARTS FAQ

This is a common misconception and totally understandable if you’re not familiar with traditional martial arts. Our art is non-contact and we pride ourselves on an extremely low injury rate. This is because all our actions are controlled and the focus always lies on improving yourself, not beating each other (competion).

We run a specific kids program for the young ones to benefit from training. We accept kids as young as they’re about to 5 years old. Once they’ve been training for a while or when they’re around 10 years old they’re ready to join the junior/adult group!

We absolutely welcome this as it’s a great opportunity for you both to build resilience and have lots of fun together as well.

No matter your age, fitness level or previous sports experience, anyone can benefit from training Soo Bahk Do. Most masters worldwide are still active in the art well in their 60s and we can always tailor class activities to any personal requirements.

Our fees are incredibly affordable, on average $7.5 a class and besides the annual federation membership and grading fees there are no additional costs. We train barefoot and your uniform can last up to 5 years.

Absolutely! You’re always welcome to check out what we do at any of our classes, and when you’re ready you can try out two free classes. Or sign up HERE to be notified of our next free introduction course or open day.
