Elite self-defence lessons

Elite Taekwondo sixth Dan Master Manni.

Established in Geelong 18 years ago, Elite Taekwondo now has additional clubs at Torquay and Ocean Grove along with a number of state and national champions

With the full-time, state-of-the-art Geelong studio, sixth Dan Master Manni looks to pave the way for his students to achieve their goals.

“It is such an amazing place to train,” he says.

“Our facilities are fantastic. Our club is such a family friendly place to train and our whole system covers absolutely everything.

“Each term covers self-defence, technique work, patterns, sparring drills, and concepts in our sparring classes as well as fitness, flexibility, agility and fun fitness-style classes Kicks, Flips and Ninja Tricks.

“Memberships are flexible and cater for everyone by offering so many classes six days a week.”

Elite Taekwondo has taught self-defence at local schools including Geelong Grammar along with Kardinia International, Clonard, Western Heights, and Christian colleges. Disability and corporate groups have also had classes.

After beginning taekwondo as a young child, Master Manni developed his teachings around the constant, progressive nature taekwondo sparring systems, which have been in the Olympics since 1988.

His firsthand knowledge of self-defence through senior roles in security has also served him well.

“Our self defence systems are practical for realistic defence from any attack. I have used my own self-defence on a number of occasions due to the nature of my roles in security, so I can teach and explain techniques from a practical view point.” NAME: Master
