The Mindful Warriors school holiday program is a play and games-based program inspired by traditional martial arts values and informed by principles of mindfulness, yoga, and functional movement. It is designed for kids in primary school (prep - Grade 6) of all fitness levels and abilities.
We believe kids learn best when they are engaged fully and faced with challenging and creative tasks; when interacting and sharing in these tasks with peers; having fun and exploring their bodies and minds.
The instructors will be be sensei Darren, Paul and Cyril.
With decades of experience in specialist education, martial arts, yoga, and well-being, the instructors have a deep understanding of the functional and holistic benefits of mindful movement.
Yamagawa Budo is an inclusive organisation specialising in martial arts and yoga therapy. We welcome children of all backgrounds and abilities, including neurodiverse kids.
All instructors are First Aid trained and have Working with Children Checks.
We hope to empower students to find their inspiration and cultivate their potential through connection, understanding, and community. Please contact us to discuss.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does my child have to be enrolled in a Primary School?
Technically no. We are limiting the the enrollment to those of Primary School age so that we can better teach the specific skills.
Does my child have to have any Martial Arts experience?
No. Anyone that does have Martial Arts experience will still be challenged and learn much from the program, but it is important to note that this is not a Martial Arts program. We use the techniques and Martial Philosophy from martial Arts to generate a healthy awareness about our bodies as well as engage the children in ways that teach them about Respect and Responsibility.
Do I have to purchase a uniform?
No. As long as the clothing the child wears is comfortable and allows freedom of movement. The photo's shown on this website are of the School Holiday program that was run specifically for the students at Fudoshin Martial Arts in the 2009 Term 3 school holidays. It was highly successful and responsible for us opening the program up to anyone.
Are there any discounts available?
A 10% discount is offered for multiple family members who enroll.
