We have many students doing martial arts (BJJ, MMA, kickboxing, karate, JKD) at the ICC who are 50+ years of age, of whom did not start learning their craft until their 40s or even 50s – past the age of when most people would consider trying out a new martial art.
It can be understandably daunting when the class is filled with faster, stronger and younger bodies. Luckily, ICC’s BJJ, MMA, kickboxing, karate and JKD classes has a place for students for all ages – including masters and seniors! It is important however, to listen to one’s body and undertake the proper precautions to limit potential injury and train consistently. Our top tips include:
By undertaking these simple precautions, you could find yourself practising BJJ, MMA, kickboxing, karate or JKD for the next 20-30 years. As we always tell our students at the ICC – it’s not how old you are, it’s how old you feel!
Give our BJJ program a go and experience the improvements to all of these fields. It is considered to be an excellent first style where the skills are easily transferable.
"My kids have been training for three months now at ICC and I have been really impressed with the instructors and the level of professionalism with which they run their club. Not only are they superb martial artists in their own right but they are also great with children which was a big factor in my decision to enroll them at ICC. Having trained for many years as a younger man I knew what I was after and ICC was daylights ahead of other clubs/styles in our area of Sydney."
"ICC is such a fantastic martial arts centre. It provides the kids with such a caring environment and a place where they feel truly excepted no matter what their ability. My eldest son is autistic and the instructors have all
gone out of their way to help him and make him feel included. They also have a wide variety of different classes and for all ages. I would highly recommend this centre to anyone that wants to give martial arts a go."

"ICC has been a wonderful place for my child to learn and develop skills in jujitsu while in a safe environment. The instructors are brilliant and make learning fun and exciting for the children while instilling the importance of the art and using the techniques correctly. We have and will continue to enjoy being apart of ICC community."
"I normally don't give reviews but my experience at ICC has been exceptional. I would strongly recommend anyone thinking of doing self defence classes or anyone wanting to learn BJJ to come down and give ICC a shot. David and Steven are highly skilled and do a great job of taking the time to teach all their students the most intricate detail of every move they learn."
