    This is the one I have been looking for !

    01-12-2015 by Troy Cummins

    I have been involved with 3 other martial arts styles in the past and I have never felt so confident that this is the style I have been looking for.

    Awesome teacher

    01-12-2015 by Alison Palmer

    Great Dojo! We can't fault it. They are genuine, honest and love kids. Their caring nature is fantastic. Teaching is second to none and Sensei Danesh has a very encouraging way of bringing correction. He reflects the true spirit of Karate and has a unique approach of teaching. We highly recommend this Dojo!

    Community Dojo

    01-12-2015 by Lisa Barnwell

    A great caring family community dojo. Sensei Dhanesh is a passionate teacher who encourages all his students in a positive and caring manner. My children not only learn karate skills but have grown immensely in confidence and self respect. The classes are for all ages and skill levels which is fantastic. Highly recommend this dojo.

    Fantastic Club

    01-12-2015 by Steve Brown

    Our children have been involved with the club for the past ten months, and absolutely love it. I can only describe it, as like a second family to them, and the atmosphere within the club is so warm, friendly and full of laughter. Dhanesh is without doubt, the most wonderful and patient teacher that I have ever seen, he is so encouraging with all of the children. It has been fantastic to see the club grow so much, over the last year.

    What a Kindergarten should be!

    31-07-2018 by Chevaun kerrins

    An excellent facility, run by extremely professional yet homely staff. Kids play on real grass, are surrounded by nature, art and run on a Reggio Emilia philosophy, which is child based investigations. A highly sought after Kindy and with good reason, I wish I could send my babies there from an earlier age!!

    21-03-2016 by Kate

    My son is attending this Kinder and we could not be happier. The staff are warm, friendly and engage with the children on their level. In the last couple months my son has been going he has become more confident around other children his own age and I can already see him building friendships with the other kids. He is excited to go each day, so I know he is happy, well cared for and stimulated while there. I could not ask for a better place for him to go and am looking forward to my second son going in a few years time.

    Spectacular Centre

    19-09-2015 by Helen

    A Magical Year

    My curious little four year old is completing a year of pre-prep at Broadbeach Waters Kindergarten. It has been a magical year for him. He has been embraced, nurtured and injected with confidence by the incredible team that makes up the centre. It is an inclusive, inviting and friendly Kindergarten. I recommend you consider giving your child the gift of a year at Broadbeach Waters Kindergarten.

    Fantastic Kindergarten!

    09-08-2015 by Debbie Hoare

    Broadbeach Waters Kindergarten is a wonderful place to send your child in their Pre-Prep year. All of my children have attended over the years and they have all loved it! As soon as you walk in the gate you can tell this a warm, nurturing place. I've always been very impressed by the wonderful, caring staff and the varied play-based program - all set in such a beautiful green environment! I thoroughly recommend this lovely place!!!

    My daughter Abbey started with STA in the Jazz class. She now does tap, ballet, lyrical, musical theatre, drama and private lessons. She competes in Eisteddfods and enjoys every minute of dancing. Tracee and the team are dedicated to the students and care about the dancers achieving to be the best they can be. SDA is not just a dance studio it is a family of dancers enjoying and learning the craft of dance and supporting each other. Thanks Traceee and the team.

    High Praise

    26-09-2014 by Vikki Hocking

    Can highly recommend Miss Tracee and Stage Door Academy. My daughters have been dancing here for 7 years and cannot speak highly enough of Miss Tracee's professionalism and dedication. The studio offers lessons in classical ballet, lyrical ballet, jazz ballet, tap, musical theatre, stretch and strengthening classes as well as drama. SDA students have sat exams in both classical ballet and tap with excellent results and put on a very professional concert at the end of each year. Very happy mum with girls that have made life long friends through the studio as well as with the other mums

    best tour ever!

    09-04-2014 by Yolanda

    First of all, I'd like to thank the crew on the day of my tour. They were so lovely, welcoming and informative. Not only was the tour absolutely amazing, having a Humpback Whale so close that I could almost touch it, it was also informative. My children learnt a lot about these magnificent animals and they wouldn't stop talking about the whales they saw for at least two weeks after the tour. All in all, this tour deserves a 5 star rating.. possibly a 6 out of 5! the kids had such a great time, as did I and we would definately do the tour again!

    Whale of a time!

    09-04-2014 by Kayllie

    I had the pleasure of going out whale watching with Whales in Paradise around 7 times this past season and loved every minute!! One of the stand outs for me is the customer service, having travelled extensively and experienced some pretty amazing customer service over the years, I have to say the staff are one of the best things about this company. Friendly, helpful and really informative about all things whales and happy to go above and beyond what you would expect. Being slightly obsessed with the ocean and all things whales every single tour is like the first time for me. You never know what you are going to get each time as whales don't really care too much about our expectations and tour times, they're just doing what they were created to do and that in itself is an amazing thing. No two tours were the same, sometimes the whales would mug the boat and be really playful and other times they would be breaching and spy hopping, seeing different behaviours displayed each time I went out with Whales in Paradise made me realise just how blessed I am to live locally and be able to access this amazing tour whenever i want. The MahiMahi is perfect for an up close Whale encounter, the staff on board are friendly and really know what they are talking about and are really interactive with the people on board. If you are trying to decide who to go Whale Watching with then I would 150% say choose Whales in Paradise, they offer smaller groups which makes it more personalised and you don't have to fight for a spot to see the magnificent whales in all their glory!

    Excellent Tour

    09-04-2014 by Holly

    This was our first Whale watching experience, after traveling around the world this was one thing we hadn't experienced so we chose to go with Whales in Paradise based on the reviews. It did not disappoint, the staff members were great, the boat was nice and clean and we saw a humpback whale and its baby! The staff was very knowledgeable and did a great job educating the passengers on the whales, it was also clear they were very focused on ensuring they did not disrupt the nature path the whales were on as they stayed an appropriate distance and did not chase them just let them be. We had great views from all areas of the boat. All-in-all a great experience.

    Fit life martial arts

    04-02-2017 by Ben

    My two daughters now aged 9 and 11 have been attending fitlife martial arts for around three years now, they absolutely love it, they have both developed into strong,confident young girls which I'm sure will benefit them throughout their entire life. Their Kung fu has given them confidence and has taught them focus and commitment which has shown in their schooling as well. They absolutely love the lion dancing we also do, another bonus. The family atmosphere is very genuine and I would recommend the centre to everyone Ben

    Answer from FitLife Martial Arts on 27-03-2017:
    Thank you Ben. It is great to see how your daughters have grown into confident, focused and respectful young women. They are great role models for all the children who follow them.

    I have been training here for almost 5 years now, and right from the beginning, I was welcomed and felt like part of the large and diverse family. The Kung Fu at this school is taught with traditional concepts of respect and morality. The kids classes look fun and their is a great mix of young and old, male and female in the adult classes. Beginners are always warmly welcomed. Oh, and did I mention the art itself is amazing!

The classes provide both technical and practical advice towards personal safety and the safety of others, whilst providing a great opportunity to keep fit. Ash, Anna and the team should be congratulated for providing such a rewarding training experience. I will certainly continue to keep attending their classes.
