Brett Austin first began Martial Arts as a child in 1984. This experience was the catalyst for joining the Ragular Army in 1989. Having served as a Combat Engineer, posted to Overseas Deployment Force Brett discovered GoJu Ryu and continued his training until reaching Black belt. Frequent postings afforded Brett the opportunity of training in Boxing, mixed Martial Arts and combative arts.

Having seen Active service in East Timor Brett returned to Brisbane to operate a full time Close Quarter Combat training centre and appointed as 2IC of Budo-Jitsu CQC. Due to on going medical issues in 2009 Brett ceased all training to focus on recovery.

In 2014 after recovering from a broken neck sustained in a major car accident, the need to reconnect with Martial Arts was evident and Master Phil Monaghan invited Brett to a session. From that day on the journey has continued to evolve with Yamba Diamond Martial Arts opening in October 2016.


YDMA provides age specific classes for your child ensuring specific needs are met according to their developmental needs.

★ Combat Wombats - Ages 5 to 6.5

Our Junior beginner classes focus on basic gymnastics skills developing, balance, coordination, gross motor skill function. Equally as important are the skills of listening for increased learning outcomes.

★ Combat Kids - Beginners - Ages 7 to 10

Our fitness and fundamentals class provides the crucial platform for a child's physical and emotional growth. With a focus on core stability, strength, cardiovascular and flexibility, your child learns the benefits of a healthy foundation for life.

Such subjects as:

• Stranger Danger

• Bully prevention

• Drug awareness are all included as part of the child safety curriculum.

★ Combat Kids - Intermediate

Our intermediate group for ages 10 to 15 or Blue belt and above. Students are quite through more advanced skills as well as scenario based training. Such training makes a response more likely to succeed under pressure. This program is the path to Black belt.
