Coach Craig Harmer has been involved in the martial arts for most of his adult life. Starting his martial arts career in Taekwondo Craig soon moved through the ranks to become highly proficient in his style which eventually led him to become World Champion under the CHITF.
Craig wanted to expand his martial arts skills and decided to take on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a way of acquiring ground skills. After 9 years of training in the art Craig attained the level of Black Belt which gave him the skills and qualifications to direct his full-time martial arts academy, Goulburn Martial Arts Academy.
Goulburn Martial Arts Academy is a 1st Class facility that serves the people of the Goulburn district from children all the way to senior adults. The purpose of the GMAA is to “lead & set the example of what and who we want our children, teens, and adult members to become.” GMAA is staged in a positive and encouraging environment, and also challenges the members to become the best version of themselves, physically and mentally.
Craig sets monthly tasks for students in his children’s program to help them achieve skills on time which also helps develop the character and behavioural traits that we all want to see in our children.
Craig believes that Martial Arts is a way of life and is passionate about what he does and is excited to share it with everybody!
