Strathpine Self Defence Classes for Kids Promote Personal Growth with New Martial Arts Programs


QUEENSLAND, Australia December 2013 – Today, technology has taken over the lives of people from all walks of life and of all ages. Even young children have access to iPads, iPhones, tablets, and personal computers and recent reports from New Zealand found that children’s spines are suffering from too much ‘screen time’. While there’s no doubt technology provides greater access to communication, education and all sorts of fun; parents all over Australia who wish to bring more balance and activity into their children’s lives are enrolling them in a myriad of courses – ballet, music, sports, and self defence classes. When it comes to self defence for kids, one Strathpine Martial Arts school in Australia stands out in its quest to bring personal growth as well as self defence skills to the children in its classes.

Damien O’Flaherty, CEO and Founder of Strathpine self defence school Factor10™ Martial Arts says, “From the beginning, our Foundation Programs provide for children 11 years of age and under who are at the formative stages of creating a body awareness and beginning to understand the social context. Our Growth Programs cater to the teenager group who are ever so vulnerable in their ability to make sound decisions and choices. The Freedom Programs provide for adults seeking to get the most or more out of life for themselves and their family who live in an increasingly complex and technology-based world.”

Damien says, “While the Foundation, Growth, and Freedom programs offered at our Strathpine Martial Arts school focus on many facets of personal development through our unique Factor10™ traditional Martial Art teaching system, the Power Programs are focused primarily on a person’s physical development. The Power Programs provide for people needing to make their bodies stronger, fitter, and faster. And finally, reaching one’s unique potential is made possible through the Factor10™ Discovery programs. The sky is the limit in the development of the physical, technical, tactical, and mental skills that are nurtured, encouraged, and enhanced through the Discovery programs.”

Factor10™ Martial Arts staff are trained in the company’s unique, trademarked training systems to deliver Factor10™ life programs. Their training is ongoing to update their skills and knowledge of the innovative programs that are developed and enhanced on an ongoing basis to meet the changing needs of society. Factor10™ Martial Arts instructors are seen as role models to members, community, and the Martial Arts industry.

Damien O’Flaherty – also the Master Instructor at Factor10™ Martial Arts – has been the coaching and officiating manager for Australia, and is currently Coaching Director for Sports Taekwondo Queensland, the only body in Queensland recognised to train Taekwondo athletes for Olympics. Damien has personally coached a student who achieved a silver medal at Youth Olympics and a student who was a shadow player for the Beijing Olympics.

Gloria, grandmother of girls taking Strathpine self defence classes for kids at Factor10™ Martial Arts says, “My grand daughters are the third generation to learn a martial art. With Factor10™ we have seen the improvement in confidence, self assurance, and concentration in the girls at school. We admire the relationship the young instructors have with their students; they are exceptional role models. We are glad we chose Factor10™, the girls love it.”
