The Hunter Valley Martial Arts Centre headquarters at Warners Bay was established in 1989, one of the first full-time martial arts centres in the region. With around 500 students and over 80 classes per week, we are able to offer a large variety of training programs to suit all ages and levels. The Warners Bay centre is the nation al headquarters of the Australian Chitokai Karate Association, and classes for all ages and abilities are held every day, as well as Okinawan traditional weaponry (Matayoshi Kobudo) , Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for men, women and children, and Hunter Fightfit (fitness kickboxing) classes. We also have an extensive pro-shop so that our students and members of the public as well as instructors and students from other local martial arts schools, can buy their martial arts equipment locally.
We have staff at the front desk from 11am to 7pm on weekdays and 9am to 12pm on Saturdays.
