“As a parent, having my own children undertaking training at Double Dragon is the best recommendation I can give.”
Having been involved in Martial Arts and physical fitness for over 35 years, as a member of the military and law enforcement tactical teams, I have had the opportunity of experiencing a wide variety of training methods. The only gym I recommend to those serious about their training is Double Dragon.
The knowledge and skill base of all instructional staff is of the highest standards I have encountered. Whether you are a seasoned professional or attending for your first lesson everyone is treated equally. The Gym offers not only martial arts, but also fitness, weight training and nutritional advice for both the novice and the elite level sportsman or woman.
At 52 years of age I have absolutely no doubt that my participation in kickboxing and fitness training and continued good health is due to the dedication and encouragement of all staff and members of the gym, where an environment of friendship and mutual respect makes the experience of training all the more enjoyable. As a parent, having my own children undertaking training at Double Dragon is the best recommendation I can give. It is a true family atmosphere with positive results for all involved.
“The best thing I ever did was sign up for classes 4 years ago. Double Dragon is about so much more than self defence. It’s about taking control of your potential and abilities.”
I have been playing water polo at A-grade level for over 10 years, but nothing has given me such a competitive edge in the pool as Mick and the staff at Double Dragon.
Being a lighter weight for my position as center forward I have found it increasingly difficult to come up against bigger players as I progressed in the sport. With guidance from the coaches at Double Dragon I have gained back that dominant presence in the field.
I learned correct body movement and kinetics, control and strength and conditioning that was tailored for me and my individual build. I was assessed by expert strength and conditioning coaches and guided step by step to my goals. Martial arts coaches taught me invaluable skills with my goals in mind. Results came fast and my confidence in the field is unbreakable.

“Using cutting edge knowledge / technology the team at Double Dragon has transformed me into a healthy, lean, strong and full of energy fighter.”
I first walked into Double Dragon a frail, fatigued & malnutritioned fighter trying to hit my weight category by using out of date but very common techniques to achieve my goal. Exhausted from eating poorly and over training I was in a mess. Using cutting edge knowledge/technology the team at Double Dragon has transformed me into a healthy, lean, strong and full of energy fighter. Working on diet, conditioning, technique & fitness I was able to achieve my ultimate goal of winning the Full Contact Australian National Title 2012 in Kyokushin Karate (3rd kyu & under). I can’t thank them enough! This is the perfect environment for all levels of experience.
“The Double Dragon trainers are always there to give guidance and plenty of encouragement while at the same time making sure that the enjoyment is not lost.”
I first began my Kickboxing training at Double Dragon under the guidance of Mick Spinks and his amazing team of trainers. When I arrived I was shown around the gym while at the same time having my questions answered before joining in the class. My first Kickboxing lesson is one that has many memories and I walked away from Double Dragon that night knowing that I would return.
Prior to joining Double Dragon I was exercising everyday and without purpose and this left me feeling tired and overtrained. Shane from Living Lean PT put together a weights program for me to build up my strength and flexibility, this combined with my newfound love of kickboxing creates a combination of exercise that gave me skill, motivation and goals to achieve.
The Double Dragon trainers are always there to give guidance and plenty of encouragement while at the same time making sure that the enjoyment is not lost. The ladies Kickboxing classes are a great place to start and with Margarita as our trainer she delivers a class full of skill, cardio and strength training, everything that you would expect from a Double Dragon trainer.
In the early days Mick said to me, and I quote “I have never not turned anyone into a Kickboxer” and my reply to that, “there is always a first time for everything”. I having now been training for nearly a year and can honestly say “I think he may have been right”. I am now working towards my Level 1 grading, and as quoted by the great man himself “Who would ever have thought...”
Thanks Double Dragon for a great year.
