Our story

Toodokan Self Defence Academy was founded by Grandmaster John Tooby in 1993.

Starting out in a small training hall with only three classes a week, Toodokan has transformed into a full-time martial arts dojo and gym. We boast a family-oriented environment, facilitating classes 6 days a week for people of all ages, skill and fitness levels.

Toodokan is a system of martial arts that utilises the principles of circular defensive techniques and linear offensive techniques in its approach to combat. 

It consists of practical self defence techniques coupled with a unique philosophy of life that encourages continual self-improvement. 

While Toodokan teaches fighting without weapons, we advocated a peaceful existence and violence as a last resort.
