Sorell Martial Arts Academy

About the club

Sorell Martial Arts Academy, SMAA, was founded in 2016 by life long martial artist and pioneer, Adam Newton. SMAA seeks to serve the Sorell community by providing a positive environment for kids and adults to train and develop as people.

Training in Martial Arts is challenging and rewarding, with every session working a sweat. Students will develop great problem solving skills as well as the kind of maturity that comes from working through difficulty. This is achieved in a team environment under the watchful eyes of one of the most experienced martial arts coaches and competitors in the country.

Sorell Martial Arts Academy is affiliated with the Maromba Academy Australia under the Head Coach, Thiago Stefanutti, a 3rd degree Black Belt from Brazil. Members are offered the opportunity to train with Thiago approximately 2 times a year. Sorell Martial Arts Academy is also affiliated with other Maromba schools in Tasmania, including Hobart Martial Arts Academy and BJJ TAZ, based in Launceston. Our academies have great relationships and regularly train and compete together as well as having an open door policy for each other’s students.
