Black Belt Martial Arts was founded over 30 years ago by Kyoshi Liz Mahler. All Teachers with BBMA have the BBMA Certified Teacher Training qualification and NCAS Coaching Accreditation.
Kyoshi Liz works closely with all BBMA school owners and their staff on a weekly basis to make sure that all BBMA schools use the best teaching practices to bring the best martial arts training to BBMA students. All BBMA teachers walk the talk when it comes to their martial arts training. Twice per week BBMA School Owners and teachers attend Teacher Training under the tutelage of Kyoshi Liz Mahler. Many of the teachers are former and current NSW and Australian Karate Team members so they bring this depth of experience to every student they teach. All BBMA Teachers attend the Master Teacher Seminars organised by Kyoshi Liz every year to bring the best Martial Arts expertise to Australia and to our students.
