Board Breaking Seminar starts with a good stretch

Students were taught the elements that make a successful board break which is a test of Technique, Speed, Power, Accuracy and Follow Through. Board Breaking is a crucial part of Taekwondo Gradings and can be a make or break point in the Taekwondo Black Belt Examination

The Whole Family That Has Their Sights Set On Black Belt

Gary, Mel, Rebecca & Eric. Our Unbelievables


By Kristy Hitchens – Brown Mouse Communications


The guide to being a superhero parent

Lesson Number One: Wake up one morning and decide (REALLY decide) every person in your family needs a Black Belt in Taekwondo.


That’s exactly how the most “Unbelievable” journey began for TKD Central parents Gary Veljacich and Mel Buhlmann.
And now our very own “Unbelievables” (because ‘The Incredibles’ was already taken AND it’s pretty ‘unbelievable’ we’re doing this!) are well on their way to achieving that dream.

Rebecca, now 10, had almost completed the Super Dragons syllabus and Eric,7, was rising through the ranks of Little Dragonflies when the inspiration hit.Gary and Mel simply decided one day that they wanted to be right there to support Rebecca as she made the transition from “the little kids’ classes” to junior Taekwondo.

Thanks to TKD Central’s unique twice-weekly family class in Australind, they were delivered an opportunity to train together as a family. Fast forward two years to Term 3, 2017 and The Unbelievables celebrated a stunningly memorable moment in their family’s history as Gary, Mel and Rebecca stood together before Master Justin for a Red Belt Grading Exam while Eric (still completing Super Dragons) watched from the sidelines.

Talk about the ultimate family bonding experience!

Now their sights are firmly set on attempting a Black Belt grading together next year.

Gary and Mel say they’re okay with the idea that it could take longer than that, but there is not a shadow of a doubt in their minds that they WILL all get there in the end. Unfortunately though, achieving a status in martial arts the majority of beginners will never actually realise, doesn’t come as easily as just waking up one morning and deciding. Former concreter Gary turns 60 next year and wages a constant war with old injuries but celebrates the remarkable improvements to his general fitness since starting training.

Mel splits her working life between lecturing in nursing at Edith Cowan University (collecting a Vice Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence as she goes because that’s just how “The Unbelievables” roll) and completing the study and research associated with undertaking a Masters Degree in Nursing.

Yet twice a week throughout the year, the four of them turn up to training and give it their all.

Every step in their Taekwondo journey together is enjoyed, celebrated and REALLY cherished. Photos, belts and board breaks converted into trophies by Gary are on display around their home to help remind them how far they’ve come and what they are working towards. Even Gary’s morning coffee cup shouts at him: “Headed for Black Belt. Don’t look back!”

Taekwondo has become a part of who they are – both as individuals AND as a family.

Those Black Belts are only a matter of time.

Rebecca and Eric talk with pride about their training and their goals and happily recount occasions where the virtues and confidence they’ve gained from Taekwondo has helped them navigate tough situations at school.Despite their young age, they can already see how perseverance is paying off.From Gary and Mel’s point of view, their family has an incredible opportunity to support each other towards achieving a common goal which looking forward, they believe will be of enormous benefit when they are forced to navigate the murky waters of parenting teens.

And they urge any parents who have been sitting on the sidelines to bite the bullet and join in the action so their families too can realise the myriad of benefits training together can bring.
All it takes is one term they believe, to figure out if martial arts is for you. Don’t worry about a uniform or the annual membership fee or gradings. For ONE TERM just turn up each week, pay for the classes as a casual participant, and give it a go. There’s nothing to lose and potentially, EVERYTHING to gain.

As for TKD Central’s instructors, Gary and Mel believe you couldn’t find a better one than 6th Dan Black Belt Master Justin Warren, describing him as head and shoulders above anyone else.And they say he’s well supported by 4th Dan Black Belt Ajana Plunkett and 3rd Dan Black Belt John Crawford who they find to be equally inspiring.

They’re experienced in their teaching methods and achieve a balance between being friendly, approachable and encouraging while understanding how to motivate and empower students to do their best. So what are you waiting for? You too can become a superhero parent like “The Unbelievables” through TKD Central’s family training nights.

Why You NEED to get your kids into Martial Arts.

Benefits Of Martial Arts

By Kelly Platts

ANXIETY. It seems to be a problem suffered by more and more people these days. The worrying part, a lot of these people are actually our kids.

Why, whose to know exactly why. Lifestyle? Diet? Our Education system? Who knows, but it’s here and we need to develop ways to overcome it. Especially for our little ones. The earlier we can teach our kids how to handle the stresses and worries of life, the better off they will be.

We’ve seen it time and time again, parents have read about the benefits of martial arts and they decide to bring their kids along to try a class. Many will love it from the word go and will continue with it for years. Some last a few terms, others only a few lessons. It’s just not their thing, but they tried it!

But then there’s a small number of kids who just won’t give it a go, I suspect they want to, kids are naturally curious. But fear, shyness and anxiety are just too overwhelming and despite all efforts from Mum/Dad and Instructors it just ends in tears.

It is these kids that could actually really benefit the most from what Martial Arts and what Master Justin has to offer them.

 Double Dragon Logo - Full Detail

Hence the introduction of the “Double Dragons Program”.

A programme specifically designed for these little guys who just need that bit of extra support and attention. In this class Mum or Dad are 100% involved. They’re not sitting on the sidelines. With a parent by their side, often this is all that’s needed to get them going, and what a great bonding opportunity!

Class numbers are capped at a maximum of six, so not only do you get a more personal experience with Head Instructor Master Justin, the overall class feeling becomes a lot less intimidating for the kids.

The Program Is Designed To Improve & Develop

Childs Personal Safety Skills Great For Coordination Give Them A Confident Start Be There To Help Them Progress All Important, An Activity For Both Parent & Child Light to Moderate Exercise For Parent Increase Bonding

We’re really excited to see what this special class can achieve. Master Justin has a truly unique skill with little ones. His kind and gentle manner really gels with our all students, but his gift is without a doubt, best applied to the youngest members. We know there will be some really positive outcomes for the students in this class.

Kid in fighting stance


But don’t stop there, after experiencing some real successes with the Double Dragons, your child should have the courage and the confidence to take the next step, and by now you will have seen first hand the amazing energy and enthusiasm from Master Justin and the incredible benefits of training in Martial Arts.

Have a think about some of the qualities and skills you want your children to have as they transition from childhood into young adults. We all want them to be successful and in good health, to live long and rewarding lives, yes? In Mind, Body and Spirit!


What are some of the skills that successful people hold, how do they achieve success?

- Mental determination: The drive and desire to push for more.

- Perseverance: The ability to continue to walk forward in the face of defeat or disappointments that come along the way.

- Confidence: A belief in themselves and their ability to achieve what they want.

- Self Control: Understanding success involves some sacrifice.

- Problem Solving & Adaptation: An Extremely important skill that is needed across all areas of life!

- Patience, Integrity and humility. Traits that are invaluable to a successful and well rounded individual.


But there are two aspects to overall health.

One is your physical Health; the other is your mental health.  Without each other in unison, things just don’t run well.

A strong, healthy and fit body will undoubtable help carry them through a successful life.

- Balance: Without it we are pretty much buggered. What’s the one of the first things we lose into our elderly years? Balance! Utilise your muscles, exercise when you’re young and really strengthen your body and core. Your balance will remain with you for A LOT longer than the average person.

- Flexibility: Can you touch your toes? No? Why not? Age is no excuse! But starting early will make the transition into the golden years much easier!

- Muscle tone & Endurance: Good muscle tone promotes good posture, and having the strength to perform many daily activities are vital. Use it or lose it. There is no truer saying. Don’t move, and in years you will have trouble moving. Move more consistently through your life and in years to come you will still be moving!

So now you’ve read it, the benefits of Martial Arts are incredible! Why WOULDN’T you want to give this amazing opportunity and start in life to your kids?

How I Doubled My Money In 3 Days With Coinspot Cryptocurrency Trading.

I’ve been reading all the latest hype about cryptocurrency & bitcoins and its hard to not get blown away by it all. The gains have been astounding.
I mean life changing with as little as $100 or even $10. So I thought I would get involved and play around with this new world money system

Now before I say about what has happened with the sum I have invested, I am no stranger to online currencies

I lost thousands in the Osgold scandal and lost 9 bitcoins in the Mt Gox stolen bitcoins. So third time lucky, or simply crazy?

The fact is I do believe in cryptocurrency, I think it has its place but it still has a while to go until it is accepted more.
I heard that only 1-10 people only, know what bitcoin is nevermind invest or use it.

I had 9 Bitcoins when they were some $400 each which is worth $3600
Those 9 bitcoins today when I’m writing this would be just under $10000 each (AUD) $90000 from doing nothing, just having it in a safer place
In 3 Years.

Recently I noticed the rise in bitcoin after I had swore off it for a while and as shown above. the difference was staggering,
Now all these new cryptocurrencies or Altcoins have appeared and while most turned up there nose, they have made a fortune for some.


One of the top contending crypto currencies is Ripple (XRP)

Ripple Chart

This graph shows an increase from $0.02 to $0.29 in 6 weeks
That’s 14.5 x your money
$100 = $1450
$1000 = $14500

Another is Etherium


Etherium around $1 to $43 in 18 months
43 x your money (Its worth $400 AUD today) 400 x your money

$100 = $4300
$1000 = $43000


$100 = $40000
$1000 = $400000

That’s life changing returns and there are many more that have this steep curve

So I took out a Coinspot Cryptocurrency Trading Account and had a go
Coinspot has currently 57 Cryptocurrencies you can invest in
That’s 57 Wallets in one account. It was an easy choice


In he last 3 days I switched some money ($550) into a Power Ledger Cryptocurrency Account in Coinspot and Doubled my money to now hold just over $1100. In 3 days
Since I started into Crypto maybe 2 months back I have gained a 30% increase with Bitcoins alone making its fair share of the biggest gains.

I started with 4% of my income I wish to invest in cryptocurrencies. through the increase in value of these currencies it is now over 5% of my free investment income. In 2 months. So My conclusion was for a small amount that if I lost wouldn’t end my world, invested in some cryptocurrencies at the correct time when the industry is still growing may double or better my money. Even 10 times.

Yes. Of Course!! Just don’t risk. As with above $100 can turn into $40000. Invest $1000, 10 ways ($100 per coin) even. Only 1 has to take off, it wont matter what the other 9 do.
If 2 take off WOW!! Or 3!!!!

When I first got into bitcoins there were guys putting up the case for a bitcoin being $5000 – $10000 one day. They were being ridiculed.
They are now Millionaire Bitcoin Investors. Some are saying it will go to $100000. Who knows.
I’m going to take the gamble, What about you?

Sign Up with a Coinspot account to access over 50 cryptocurrencies, Its like a crypto-exchange. Verification is simple ID
put just $100 in and invest

If your chosen cryptocurrency tanks out, well ok. $100 lost. Its ok, You’ll Survive
If it goes like Etherium, you now own $40000.
For a $100 investment?
