Martial Arts 8 Week Program | Canberra

This activity has reached capacity. Please email activities@fortemaustralia.org.au to register your interest for future activities, or sign up to our monthly Fortem Connect newsletter to stay up to date with Fortem activities, announcements and advice.


First responder families from the Canberra region, join us for a Martial Arts 8 Week Program to get active, get connected and learn new skills. These skills include escalation and de-escalation, introductions to Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, functional fitness and testing how you respond in chaos, plus more. This 8 week course will bring you together to connect with your partner or another immediate family member, as well as other first responder families. You must be available for all 8 classes, however we understand that with shift work you may be unable to attend a class or two.

Martial arts are a great exercise to improve and maintain physical health, and relieve stress, for your mental fitness. Plus learning a new skill has been correlated with positive effects on well-being. Group classes are a great way to connect and socialise with other local first responders, to boost your social well-being by broadening social networks and range of relationships with others in the wider community.

This activity is free for first responder families. Adults only. Wear comfortable exercise clothes, bring a towel and water bottle. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.

This is a small group activity with limited numbers. Register now to secure your place. Note registration is not confirmed until Fortem sends a confirmation email. Restrictions apply in line with current COVID regulations.
