About Real Life Martial arts

Welcome to Real Life Martial Arts. We specialise in private training sessions encompassing various disciplines, including self-defence, kickboxing, boxing, and strength and conditioning.

Unlike traditional martial arts schools, we offer a unique approach that caters to individuals seeking practical skills for real-life situations without needing uniforms or memberships.



Hi, I’m Louis, and I am excited to share my passion and expertise in martial arts and personal training with you. With over 20 years of experience in kickboxing, boxing, and various martial arts disciplines, I bring a wealth of knowledge to help you achieve your goals.

I hold a black belt in Wing Chun Kung Fu, a highly effective martial arts style specialising in self-defence techniques. It’s an honour to have attained this level of mastery in a martial art that has proven its effectiveness in real-life situations. 

Additionally, I have studied Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Sanda(Sanshou) and Judo. This has furthered my understanding of different fighting styles and techniques enabling me to add sweeps, throws and takedowns to my teachings.

To take a more realistic approach towards teaching martial arts and self-defence and to teach techniques that are useful and applicable in any confronting situation. The focus is on learning self-defence skills for real world situations.

In 2014, I was proud to be crowned the Victorian State champion in the National All Styles competition, showcasing my skills and dedication to my craft. I have placed in the top three at national competitions and won numerous black belt competitions. These achievements reflect my commitment and perseverance to my training and teaching.

One of the highlights of my martial arts journey was receiving the prestigious World of Wing Chun Kung Fu Association Achievement Award. The award was presented to me by Grand Master William Cheung, a legendary figure in the world of Wing Chun Kung Fu who trained alongside the iconic Bruce Lee. This recognition is a testament to my dedication and expertise in the art.
