About NMAA

Nutaofit Martial Arts Academy – NMAA

NuTaoFit has its orgins from a balanced approach in what ever we do, i.e. Nu – Nutritional, Tao – Way or path for life, Fit – Physical and mental fitness

NuTaoFit means learning a way or our way of martial arts and was formed in 1985 by our founder:

Kwan Jang Nim Geoff Hutchinson (1957 – 2016)
9th Dan Black Belt NMAA,
Victorian Representative IAFF,
Ranked 4th Dan,
Ranked 3rd Dan ATA Australasian,

Our Club badge reflects the style’s desire to achieve balance in the use of hands/ feet/ holds/ locks/ sweeps/ throws, etc. This is why the Yin/ Yang symbol appears on the badge.

Headquarters for NMAA are located in Melbourne, Australia:
710 CENTRE ROAD, EAST BENTLEIGH, VICTORIA, 3165

Classes are held on everyday of the week, i.e. from Monday through to Sunday, to meet the wants and needs of all students. Please refer to the separate time table for the full range of times and classes that are available. Our classes provide a service to the community and are reflected in the NMAA Vision, our Instructors and Students Pledge of Responsibility, as shown below…and to remember that the instructors role is to teach and the students to learn and have fun.
