WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
Joining the Firestorm bootcamp group has been an absolute life changer for me. I have lost over 20kg in just over 18 months and kept it off. I feel fitter and stronger than I ever have before. I could not have done this without the support of such great people. The sessions are motivating, challenging without being intimidating and never the same. To be trained by someone with such a wealth of knowledge and experience is a rarity. The atmosphere is amazing. Highly recommend!
My children have been members of Firestorm Martial Arts kidz karate for many years. It has without a doubt changed their lives. Under guidance and instruction from Kyoshi Mike Quin, it has given them the ability to handle life changes and uncertanties with strength and confidence. Aside from the physical and fitness benefits, Kids Karate has been invaluable in teaching focus, discipline and determination, and in decision making and team work. Firestorm Martial Arts is orientated around family and friends and is like our second home. It has become an integral part of our lives. Definitely on the highly recommended list.
The fitness classes at Firestorm Martial Arts are varied, challenging and fun workouts, designed and executed by trainer Mike Quin. Who knew exercise could be this amusing! The Fyte fit boxing based sessions really get the body moving and the heart pumping. My arms have never been this toned! The bootcamps are high intensity cross training sessions which produce fantastic results. Between both these classes, my fitness level has improved dramatically and my body is the strongest and leanest its ever been. I love my weekly sessions and highly recommend both classes to anyone seeking to improve their strength, fitness and lifestyle.

Hello just a short note to thank you Kyoshi Mike for your Karate program,
that my son has being attending at Park Orchards Primary School.
My son seems to enjoy your program and I feel my son is concentrating a lot more since he has started your Karate program.
I am very pleased with your teachings and the growth I have witnessed in my son.
He is developing some great physical and life skills.
Thanks Kyoshi Mike
My son Richard has been training with Kyoshi Mike and other instructors for about five years. I have been consistently impressed with the high level of advice on life skills (eg ‘honour, responsibility, respect’) that make up part of the training, plus of course the physical skills. I think Kyoshi Mike has a great way with kids and strikes an excellent balance between discipline and good-natured banter, which helps create a friendly, non-threatening atmosphere. This has fostered Richard’s growth and development in a really positive way.
The decision to enrol my 2 kids in karate was born from a desire for them to learn focus, commitment and responsibility and to build confidence. Mike and the team at Firestorm have delivered this and more. The classes are led by highly skilled, inspirational teachers and are really well structured, with a great balance of fun, skills training and guidance on dealing with challenging situations and being the best you can be. The program offering is diverse and cost efficient. The kids and I look forward to going to the dojo and are proud to be part of the Firestorm family.
I have known Mike Quin for several years now as I have observed him training my daughters in karate, and more recently with me undergoing training in ‘Boot Camp Training’ sessions under his instruction.
My observation of him as a trainer is of a person who shows respect to his students and teaches the children to respect not only their training and skills they are learning with karate, but also the philosophies behind the training and those whom they may have to use those skills against.
His trainings have clearly shaped a respectful culture within the club which is obvious when meeting many of the students, children and adults alike. His trainings and the culture of the club he has developed has helped both my children to develop confidence. Mikes approach to teaching of the philosophies has assisted in helping my daughters to develop a respectful attitude and strength of character.
Mike also instructs my wife in Karate, and now is a personal trainer for my wife. Regarding karate again I have seen my wife’s confidence grow. In regards to her personal training I have also noticed that my wife no longer receives injuries as she had with previous personal training.
In recent times I have commence ‘Boot Camp Training’ with Mike and he is aware of injuries that I have and he has shown his professional approach and has adapted various training procedures that suits my requirements.
I cannot commend Mike Quin highly enough for his professional and caring approach to his training and instruction to students.
We have been involved with Firestorm since 2008. Both my girls one now 14 and the other 12 years, started to mainly increase their confidence and learn to stand up for themselves. They have developed from two very quiet confidence lacking individuals to two girls that are more confidence and strong children. The Instructor they have had Kyoshi Mike have been encouraging and challenged them to do their best. Firestorm is a family environment and hence I joined in 2010 as I was there regularly with my children and wanted to join in and have found it an experience that was challenging at first but very rewarding.
The eldest of my daughter’s confidence has grown that much that she asked to become a junior instructor and hence helps out to instruct new students under the guidance of Mike Quin.
