"My 4 1/2 year old son has been training at Kinetic for the past 12 months. In this time, I have watched him develop motor skills, concentration, respect and discipline but most importantly some great friendships. At Kinetic, it doesn't matter how much natural ability you have, if you have the right attitude and give 100%, you will be given 100% back. Trent and the team are extremely professional and passionate, and I would not entrust the care and development of Scott to anyone else." - Natalie M.

However our lives continue to evolve, one thing will remain - the power of strength, fitness and flexibility." - Adam S.

"Dear Sir Trent, I would like to thank You, Sir Paul and Miss Jess for organising "The Chicks Class" over the last month. Every girl that came got the opportunity to be themselves and not to feel intimidated by the boys. It was a well constructed and practical class for everyone. It was really cool how Sir Paul showed us techniques that Miss Jess demonstrated on a male larger than her very effectively. This has provided a lot of confidence to all the "chicks" that attended." - Aurora M.

Aurora has been training with her dad and brother at Kinetic Martial Arts Cronulla since 2013 and is a Falcon.

"Hi Trent,
Just want to say thank you, after all the stuffing around etc, for what was a profound event for Charlie, he will always remember his right of passage and facing 'multiple grabs' to becoming a hawk.
His commitment to his task and his confidence to perform under pressure would not have been there 6 months ago. Well done on creating a great culture and bringing a sense of pride and self to the kids.
- Nick S.

Nick's son Charlie has been training at Kinetic Martial Arts Cronulla since 2013. He started as a Sparrow, and graduated to a Hawk.

"I can't even begin to describe to you the difference you and the instructors have made to his life. His focus has improved, as has his coordination, confidence & emotional understanding. He's achieving success at Hapkido & feels welcome there. We both feel that we also learn something when we watch his classes. It's great to be involved in such a positive environment where you work with us to help him grow. ”   - Mother of a Hapkido-ist after training for 2 years with Master Trent.

"This place is amazing ... My daughter started here just under a year ago, she had problems with confidence, self esteem , making friends and controlling her anxiety. All this has changed for the positive. The instructors not only make it fun but instill respect, confidence, structure, responsibility and discipline. As well as the art of Hapkido ,they teach about a healthy diet, mind, and body. My daughter loves it here and I would highly recommend it to anyone.”   - Claire S.

Claire's daughter Morgen has been training at Kinetic Martial Arts Cronulla since early 2015.

He has changed my life in a big way and I will continue to train. Thanks guys.”   - Dylan S.

"Hi Trent, Just a quick word to say the demonstration today was awesome. The audience and the kids loved it! Kendal enjoyed it - once again we are over the moon about his Hapkido and your tutelage. Congratulations again and thanks for all of your time with Kendals. Kendal has always been a great kid but is turning into a champion young adult - and you have definitely played a big part in this - sincere thanks.”   - Trevor and Lee

Kendal has been training at Kinetic Martial Arts Cronulla since 2012.

"I have been training with Master Trent and his team for three years and have also joined my three sons. I really like being able to train with my sons occasionally and personally I have never trained at a martial arts club that encourages and motivates its members like Kinetic. I have previously trained in different martial arts and have never wanted to succeed in training as much as at Kinetic. I am looking forward to another three years minimum of training and personal improvement at Kinetic.”   - Chris R.

Chris has been training at Kinetic Martial Arts Heathcote and Cronulla since 2013.

Sir Trent is a great master, he supports me and everyone else in the club and same with the instructors. I love training here! Thank's for the great experience Sir Trent and instructors!”   - Tori M.

Tori has been training at Kinetic Martial Arts Cronulla since 2016, and is currently 12 years of age.

"I can't thank you enough for our experience today! The parent reports I am getting this evening is that the kids are still bubbling over with excitement! Master Trent was just amazing, and by using such specific language (right hand, left leg etc.) he allowed all our kids to participate fully! A superb instructor with just the right touch of humour! Our students were totally enraptured! The special attention and diligence shown by Sir Shamus at just the right moment to just the right child, was wonderful to see! It was impressive to see him create a master class for our older, more capable students too! This was a day they’ll always remember! On behalf of the Vision Support Team we thank you." - Lisa B.

Lisa is the Assistant Principal at a Vision School. Her students did a class with Master Trent and Sir Shamus in September 2018.

"The instructors who are involved in Kinetic Martial Arts are wonderful. They understand their learners’ needs and are skilled martial artists themselves. Leading the charge is the most capable person. Master Trent, whose approach is meaningful and effective is a most humble and open person with encouragement, high standards and an intuition for his students’ capabilities that is phenomenal! I am so grateful that my kids and I all attend a Kinetic dojang!" - Rachael C.
