Training is gradual, but as you progress through the belt structure you will learn to defend yourself against increasingly demanding attacks, using a system of throws, locks and strikes.

Do I need to speak fluent English to get a job?

Getting a job in Australia depends on each person’s efforts but English proficiency takes a part too. The better English the student speaks the more job options he/she will have. Students who are still not confident regarding the language have more limited options in jobs. They can get jobs such as kitchen hands, pizza delivery, cleaners, car washers, etc.

But remember, Australia is a country with lots of migrants and people of several nationalities from all over the world and the Australian themselves are used to different languages and people with accents. If your English proficiency is not that good, don’t worry because they are very polite and understanding of foreigners living or visiting Australia.
