Alpha female academy: martial arts – run by girls for girls.

Have you ever wanted to train martial arts, but felt uncomfortable as a beginner or even training with men? Not that we should feel this way, but at times training with men can be intimidating. Alpha female academy is an offshoot of Sitshooton Gym in Rockdale. They saw a gap in the market in this field and opened a gym purely for women, and run by women. The mission is to teach women how to protect themselves, get fit, become confident and live a healthy lifestyle.

The focus of Alpha female gym is Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing. They also run Muay fit and conditioning classes. They even run ‘mum fit’ and have a space for the kids to play.  

You will receive authentic training and learn great technical skills in a variety of classes.

See their timetable here:

The gym sees small groups train together, led by extremely experienced trainers, and they themselves train at Sitshooton Gym. These trainers have had real fighting experience in both Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu, both in Australia and internationally. The trainers are super helpful, friendly and really make you feel welcome. They correct your technique and run suitable activities for the level of people in the class.
