Respect Tradition - Embrace Evolution

Shindo is a modern martial art formulated by Kerry Dunne, founder and chief instructor at the Shindo New Breed MMA gym. Kerry was a pioneer of Australian Mixed Martial Arts, coaching an MMA curriculum from1994 onwards.

There is no single unified discipline of MMA, as the term “Mixed Martial Arts” refers to a competitive rule-set rather than discrete sets of techniques, but the Shindo curriculum addresses all of the skills required to successfully compete in MMA competition – Striking, Clinching, Throws & Takedowns, and Submission Grappling. “Shindo” is the amalgamation of the Japanese terms “Shin” meaning “new” and “Do” meaning “way” or “path”, which is an allusion to the underlying philosophy of the system - innovation and evolution.

We are located at 7 Distribution Avenue, Molendinar
