OMMA Budo Instructor Pic Colin Niland

Having started my martial Arts journey over 45 years ago it has always been one of my goals to start a school which blended all of the traditional arts into one. Having first trained in Judo at Coventry Judo club as a boy then over the years studying Karate (Tang Soo Do), Kickboxing and Tae Kwon Do I have always been driven to develop myself further.

After moving to Australia from the UK I continued to train in Tae Kwon Do and 10 years ago started training in Yoseikan Aikido.

In 2022 I received the rank of Sandan and have also gained my teachers certification from Washizu Sensei , after training and grading with Sensei Murat Aktas as at Yamato Aikido . I am also a proud member of the Australian Gyokushin Ryu Aikido Federation .

Bringing all of these arts together in a Traditional Budo style, students will have the chance to learn Kicking, Striking, Grappling, throwing, chokes and weapons with an emphasis towards self-defence and life skills.

To ensure the best for our Students my studies still continue with regular training in Karate and Aikido.

Training at OMMA Budo will help students to form a positive and confident approach to life without the need for ego or aggression.

I look forward to you joining us on your own Journey.

1st Degree Black Belt at OMMA Budo – Gyokunenkan Aikido

I’m a qualified first aider and mental health first aider and hold a current working with children’s card.

I’ve been training at OMMA Budo for 3.5 years with 4 of my 5 kids and we love the family oriented, egoless approach to training.

For me Gyokunenkan Aikido continues to help me develop mindfulness and I use the skills I learn in daily life.

Prior to joining OMMA Budo – Gyokunenkan Aikido I trained in Jurate, Shotokan Karate, Goju-ryu Karate, Kokikai Aikido and Jiai Aikido in the US.
