Firestorm Dojos is a family within the Bob Jones Corporation’s, Zen Do Kai, Freestyle Martial Arts schools. We are located in Victoria, Australia, at the outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. My name is Mike Quin. I am the founder of the Firestorm Dojos and invite you to wander through our web site at your leisure. You will find information here about our club and our style of martial art. We are a ‘freestyle’ martial art which means that we incorporate techniques from many other martial art’s styles, including, Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, Ju Jitsu, Kendo and Muay Thai, to name just a few, and adapt them to suit today’s world. I’m sure you will find that what we do is very interesting.
We have created this web site to help us to share what we do with as many people as possible and to fill the gaps that our physical training doesn’t enable. With this in mind, we hope to increase communications amongst ourselves, our Zen Do Kai brothers and sisters throughout Australia, New Zealand and the world, and all other martial artists and interested people around the globe.
Firestorm Martial Arts opened its doors back in 1991 with about 10 students at only one training venue (dojo). It has now grown to a complement of well over 180 regular students who train at the Firestorm venues and many hundreds of students have passed through the Firestorm dojos over the years. Many of these students have progressed to the black belt level which has strengthened the whole fabric of the Firestorm family.
