SHIRUDO Ultimate Martial Arts, first and foremost is a family-based culture that provides a choice of the most diverse Martial Arts Programs in Australia today with a very strong team of winning competitors as Instructors, coaches and students alike.

SHIRUDO itself, is a Hybrid Martial Art which was founded in 2012 by Shihan Paul. The Japanese word SHIRUDO translates to English as SHIELD. (relating to building a protective shield around us)

After studying many different forms of martial arts Including Kung Fu, Karate, Judo, Hapkido, Taekwondo and Chi Gong, for more than 30 years and achieving High level Black Belts in several styles, he decided to develop and create his own style based around practical self-defence and family values and developed a comprehensive curriculum that covers a very broad range of techniques drawn from his experience, training and achievements through all the styles.

In 2014, SHIRUDO established a full-time facility in Castle Hill and along with his son Liam, who also shares a deep passion for martial arts, and trained extensively in boxing and kickboxing for many years and still remains undefeated as an amateur, achieving state titles and competing on the local amateur circuit. Liam is currently Blue belt in Jiu Jitsu & has coached numerous state champions in Kickboxing and is looking to break several of his fight team into professional MMA and eventually UFC.

With this powerhouse family partnership they have created a first class training facility that has revolutionised the martial arts industry by offering standalone classes in SHIRUDO Hybrid, Boxing, Muay Thai/ Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and High Intensity Fitness with A Premium Membership package that offers 24/7 access, this has clearly established SHIRUDO as a unique and modern Martial Arts facility situated right in the heart of Castle Hill.

SHIRUDO facility offers a fully equipped, climate-controlled gym, with undercover security parking, a five-minute walk from Castle Towers shopping centre, and directly opposite the major bus terminal and the new rail link from Rouse Hill to Pennant Hills.

All classes are conducted across 460 sqm of fully matted floor space and taught by highly qualified and internationally experienced instructors, trainers and coaches, with current working with Children Checks and Police Checks and up to date first aid certificates.
