About Centre of Martial Arts

Centre of Martial Arts was formed by Clare White (Programs Manager) and Martin White (Head Instructor) along with their four kids (Joshua, Jessica, Mitchell and Jonathan), with Jessica White now progressing to Instructor status.

Their main aim was to create a family friendly club, with a safe environment for children, teens and adults to learn martial arts. We run Gold Coast Martial Arts Classes in Carrara, Gold Coast Qld. Centre of Martial Arts is a fully Registered Australian Private Company, TOP TEN MARTIAL ARTS PTY LTD, ABN number 38 606 557 555
