What Our Clients Have Said About Us


Martina Bilek

I have been training at Southside Academy of Combat for a year now, and cannot speak highly enough of it. My instructors are patient, highly skilled and are well equipped to teach children as well as adults. The academy is family orientated and has a comfortable atmosphere which is reflected by the students. I also recommend the private sessions which I utilise the most in my training.

Martina Bilek



What an amazing academy! My son really enjoys himself while learning life long skills that suit his individual needs that build strength in mind and body. His coach Mas Taufan is extremely supportive and encouraging.



Sarushen Gounden

The first thing you notice when entering Southside Academy of Combat is the supportive environment that Mas Taufan and the other instructors foster. An environment that makes me look forward to class every week. I am always challenged but at the same time I have never felt as though I was out of my depth with training.

Training Silat has taught me not only self defence, but also discipline and the importance of taking initiative. Something that I have carried into my personal and professional life.

Walking through the doors of Southside Academy of Combat was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

What an awesome place to train. The Master Taufan is funny, ambitious, and knowledgeable. I have been coming here for a few months and it's become an addiction. I would highly recommend freinds and family to train here if they want to learn the art and to get in shape or stay in shape.

Hafsah Negussie

I started training with Southside Academy of Combat and signed up to do womens only mma conditioning class. I wasn't looking for much except a new activity. What I didn't realise was that I would be introduced to a martial arts that would change my life forever. I started to learn the gentle art of bjj, and grew in ways I never thought possible. The coach, Cherie dedicates so much time and attention into the individual needs and quality of each of her students which produces individual unique growth. She's been my mentor ever since and she's taught me foundational techniques that has been the basis of my growth. The muay Thai side of the class taught me and enabled better hand eye coordination, allowed me to work on the other side of my brain. Being right handed, I always thought my right would be my better side, now my left is the better side in relation to striking. I can't recommend these classes enough. Even for just general fitness, it's a fun way to get fit and learn new martial arts. I'm forever grateful, and blessed to have started my journey here!
