|Student & Parent Testimonials|
I am the mother of (name removed for privacy) aged five. This year He was attending the Booval centre with Instructor Shannan for a few months till my work hours prevented attendance when the introduction of Koalas timetable began.
We have now deliberately made the changes necessary for our son to attend the 3.30pm classes and having trialled the travel time from his school to both Springfield and Booval, we manage to get to the Springfield Centre just in time.
As parents we made best we could to continue some mixed martial arts from home but we must credit both Shannan (his trusty team) and Infinity Martial Arts for instilling what he’d already learnt in the short time he was training at Booval, and managed to upgrade to yellow belt.
His limited time in training with Infinity Martial Arts helped him block every punch and kick thrown his way at a physical bullying attack that I (along with many other parents) recently witnessed. After running across the oval to get to my son in panic, it became clear once I got closer to him, that he was fine. He could of easily scored a black eye or worse, but he stood his ground, defended himself and instead of belting the c##p out of the other kid, he chose to trip him instead. When I asked him if he was ok, his first words were “Mum, I just didn’t want to hurt him”.
My words don’t give justice to how he handled the whole situation, his calm approach made me proud. Though he came out of it crying, the praises from other parents and friends certainly gave him comfort in knowing he couldn’t have managed it any better if he tried. Having to also know that my son did not retaliate out of anger, makes me even prouder and more determined to get him back into the sport as soon as possible.

"I expected that taking up a new sport at 38 would be a real challenge, but with the way things are done here it has been a very enjoyable process. I am now fitter, lighter and stronger, and just love seeing my 4 year old daughter learning the same skills." - Mark Forrest
"The confidence and knowledge that Chad has given me in the short time I have been with Infinity I will have and take with me for life. I used to go to the gym and pay $1000 per year to be bored running on a treadmill that went nowhere and half the time there was no motivation to turn up to the classes so the money would be wasted! I feel that in the 7 months I have been training that if a situation to protect myself came up, I would at least have a chance of defending myself with what I have been taught. Excellent A+." - Anonymous student response
