Start Your Journey with Kung Fu Training for Beginners
If you are looking for a new challenge, then you might be looking for Kung Fu training for beginners to help make the changes you want to see.
Head Academy offers a range of Kung Fu lessons for beginners suitable for both children and adults, across five locations in Sydney. Sifu Anthony Head, our director, started studying judo at the age of 12 – and since then has learned under the tutelage of renowned martial arts masters, focusing on Jow Gar Kung Fu classes for over 14 years. This has led to the development of the Head Academy, combining a world-class martial arts curriculum with principles of Taoism in meditation and Qigong, as well as healing modalities.
The Head Academy Kung Fu training for beginners is the perfect place to start your journey – wherever you want to go.
The Head Academy Difference
The Head Academy takes ancient Chinese wisdom and brings it to our modern life in a way that creates balance of all four aspects of the human realms of self. These are the physical realm, the mental realm, the emotional realm, and the spiritual realm – and with Kung Fu for beginners, our students can start their journey to find their own personal balance.
Kung Fu beginners’ classes are designed to be challenging but achievable, modified to suit the needs of every age group – from 3–6-year-olds through to teens, and adults of all ages. You are never too old or too inflexible to take advantage of Kung Fu beginners lessons. We know that even as we get older it is important to keep moving. The human body is a complex organism, so movement and mobility offer great benefits to the body even as it ages.
The specific movements that are involved when you learn Kung Fu as a beginner can grow brain synapses, strengthening the connection between mind and body. This means that with the right Kung Fu for beginners’ program and an appropriate level of effort, youthful mobility can be available to you. That is why we provide other movement-based classes alongside the more traditional JJow Gar Kung Fu training – such as a yoga-based flow, a cardio class, and sessions aimed at rehabilitating existing injuries while preventing others.
From kids through to adults, the Head Academy provides Kung Fu beginner lessons that combine mastery of breath work, effective stress coping mechanisms, flexibility, self-esteem, respect, and confidence – all while learning some kick-ass self-defence.

Sifu Nathan Head
Founder of Head Academy Kung Fu (December 2003).
Sifu Nathan established both the Leichhardt and Caringbah branches of Head Academy.

Sifu Chris Pendergast
Chris has been surrounded by an active lifestyle from a young age. Growing up Chris was very sport orientated competing to a high level in Cricket and Soccer and attended Endeavour Sports High School. After years of being in this type of environment he realised he needed more fulfilment in his life. A simple phone call was made to Sifu Nathan Head and Chris’s life was forever changed. He had discovered what was missing from his life which was only filled through physical activities. Kung Fu opened Chris’s eyes to all the answers he was seeking. It didn’t matter if the question wasn’t about Kung Fu, the power of Kung Fu wisened Chris up to the calmness it took to deal with any situation that confronted him. Chris realised what his journey was. Chris started up his own Head Academy Jow Gar Kung Fu School under the continual guidance of Sifu Nathan Head in Yarrawarrah in August 2013. With steady growth of students, Chris moved his school into a full time location based in Heathcote in October 2014. The school continues to flourish with the positive energy each student brings to his school. Not one to keep himself bored, Chris has a daughter Kayleigh and is expecting the arrival of twins with his wife Cassy. Chris is always searching for ways to better himself and goes by the following rules: Trust yourself, Break The Rules, Don’t be afraid to fail, Don’t listen to the naysayers, Work Overtime and Give Something Back. With constant goal setting, anything can be achieved!
Sifu James Agius

Dai Si Hing Jun Liew
Jun is the lead instructor at the Leichhardt academy, and has been training with us for 12 years now. He is training towards his 2nd degree Black Sash.
Jun has been training at Head Academy since 2009 and has enjoyed the journey so much that he has gone on to instruct from 2014 and now has become a part-owner of the Leichhardt Academy. He very much subscribes to the idea of always learning, continually growing and improving; Jow Gar Kung Fu has been a great motivating vehicle to drive this passion. The biggest reasons Jun continues to train at Head Academy (for over a decade and running) is because of the open, ego-free, fun yet driven atmosphere on the mats, the superior skill and knowledge of the senior instructing team, and the depth and complexity of the Jow Gar style of Kung Fu. Beyond the training side of things, Jun has a unique insight as an instructor into all the programs delivered to the children - particularly the PROTECT program and self-defence principles we impart. One big reason the instructors continue to do what they do is because of the difference they make in these children's lives - this is no different in Jun's case.
Azi has been training in Kung Fu since 2007, when a friend of his mentioned kung fu his interest was piqued immediately. He had wandered through many team sports and activities looking for a way to be healthy but never found one that fit. Kung fu turned out to be the one, he was fascinated by the traditions of it, the generations of knowledge being passed down, on the individual focus required to improve, and the giddy heights of reaching a goal with no one else to thank but hard work. Over the years of dedicated practice and martial arts exploration, he has learned many lessons about confidence, strength, conflict, and holistic health. He is undoubtedly a martial arts fanatic and is dedicated to passing on the cherished art of Jow Gar Kung Fu.
Sifu Eric Jewson
The first of Sifu Nathan Head's students to grade to Red Sash. Eric has been training with Head Academy Since 2004. He is a lead instructor at Head Academy Leichhardt and is a key figure and inspiration to all students who train with him, and who are taught by him. Eric is one of the "Original Three" who have fundamentally helped Sifu Nathan create and build Head Academy to what it is today.

His joy of teaching, and for kung fu, shines through whenever he has interactions with students. He is a gifted kung fu practitioner who has dedicated most of his life to training in the art of Jow Gar Kung Fu. He is another of our Lead Instructors at the Leichhardt branch.
At Head Academy we teach the Chinese Martial Art know as Jow Gar Kung Fu.

We have constantly strived to create classes and programs that reflect our students goals, while maintaining the traditional focus on martial skill development and self defense.
