My martial arts journey started when I was 57! I am blessed to have commenced and continued the disciplined and challenging training in Zen Do Kai. I am so much fitter than I was and I have acquired very useful self defence skills.

You were the most important role models for my son, Blade.  I'll be forever grateful for what you taught him.  We were so lucky to be part of such a talented and inspirational club.

This style provides the student with many different and effective combative techniques to ensure their safety when faced with a multitude of different, possibly life threatening scenarios!
A true self defence system!

I drove for 1 hour to witness Shihan Rohan teach highly informative and well presented sessions to both kids and adults. I thoroughly enjoyed both classes.



Fitness, Self Defence, Confidence & Fun

Welcome to 'Golden Grove' Zen Do Kai, a member club of Bob Jones Martial Arts.

Zen Do Kai - Martial Arts Freestyle is a phenomenon created by Bob Jones in 1970 when he opened his first martial arts club in Elizabeth St, Melbourne.  

It was originally intended to cater for those who worked in the security industry, but the demand and popularity grew beyond expectation.  With the famous Bruce Lee movies flooding the cinemas more and more, people sought to participate in the martial arts phenomena.

Zen Do Kai has never had a closed attitude, nor is it a closed system, we are an open system, and as such we have to be open to influences and ideas from all around the world. We must always be guided by a thirst for knowledge, understanding and meaning to the things we do and those things that have been handed down to us from previous generations.

Using modern self defence principles with traditional values, we seek to improve the system, improve ourselves and to be aware of creating the opportunities for the individuals within our organisation to achieve their personal best. We are proud, not only of our system, but of the many thousands of students that have developed from it. Train in Zen Do Kai and we are sure you will find the experience fulfilling, exciting and most of all .... enjoyable.

It has evolved from adding the principles and techniques of many martial arts disciplines together with the strong Bob Jones fighting tradition to form a modern, effective and comprehensive self defence system.

So why not come and enjoy our leadership, guidance, training and friendship - We will welcome your contribution!
