SHMA Holiday closing dates.

SHMA will be closed for the first week of the school holidays and reopening for the second week per our regular timetable.

  • Closing from Monday 23rd September and reopening Monday 30th September.

Over the years we always experience a drop in student’s numbers during the school holiday’s, so this is a great opportunity for our staff to rest and re-energize.

There are many advantages for our students when our staff and instructors take leave or just have a break:

  1. Staff that have taken timely leave are more energized and enthusiastic when they return and are recharged to continue working with you on your martial arts journey.
  2. Staff that attend ongoing training are more professional, bring fresh idea’s & passion to their teaching and develop more skills.
  3. We believe that spending precious time with family & friends is important to us and is an integral part of our staff’s personal development.

Please note that your student membership fees are not based upon a quantity of classes over time but rather the quality of the Martial Art program that we provide, hence our school closures are not charged in your membership fees. Any classes missed whilst the Academy is closed we do offer unlimited classes for child to attend in the second week of the school holidays.

Should you have any queries regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact us on (03) 9537 0620 or email Shifan Francine directly at  You may also see your instructor to help schedule your attendance around your holidays.

Thank you for your understanding..
