HOW DID MDG START?

MDG Studio (or Murray's Martial Arts - previously known as Kwon So Dow & Macarthur Martial Arts) is the longest running martial arts school in the Region, having been established in the area in 1970 under the ownership of Master Sigung Henry Murray.

 

Murray's, originally taught by Master Sigung Henry Murray & Sifu Joan Murray, specialising in the art of Kung Fu & Traditional weapons, has set a professional & traditional high standard reputation within the martial arts world. For over 45 years, Murrays has held its high standard in making outstanding black belts through both physical & mental changes in many of our student's lives.

 

In 2006, Murrays expanded with the help of Master Sigung Henry Murray's Daughter, Sifu Jackie Murray, who has introduced Mixed Martial Arts, Gymnastics, Personal Fitness Training, and much more to the mix! Over the years, Murray's has produced world title holders, many champions & lots more place holders in many Martial Arts Tournaments.

 

The Murray family have all been traditionally trained and raised, having spent many years of their lives in China training within temples in the disciplines of Kung Fu & Wu Shu! The Murray family also own and operated multiple Martial Arts Centres in NSW.

 

MDG Studio often perform at many local & special events and also hold a huge End of Year Show where students from all fields of our studio come together for a huge performance showcasing demonstrations of Martial Arts & Gymnastics!
