DR PETER LEWIS
CEO FOUNDER - KUNG FU MASTER

Dr Peter Lewis leading sports physician in Australia, has been a ringside doctor for over 30 years. His knowledge in Combat Sports is beyond anyone's imagination. Peter is responsible for all safety procedures that are now in place by Victorian Combat Sport. 

Peter is also a Kung Fu Master, having trained over 30 years. It is that passion that he has, that has led him to open Malvern Martial Arts Academy. Being a super busy doctor he can no longer commit to regular classes. However, he is still very actively involved in running the center. He looks forward to seeing everyone there to train hard!

GEORGE KOLOVOS

Shihan George Kolovos is one of the industries most influential and leading martial artists. He commenced his martial arts career in the Kyokushin discipline of Karate in 1975.

 

George trained at the then head quarters of Kyokushin Karate, he swiftly progressed through the ranks, obtaining a black belt in two and a half years, a process which ordinarily takes at least 5 years. By this time George had felt it necessary to create his own centre focused solely to martial arts. He had several styles of martial arts in his arsenal and various national titles for both Kyokushin Karate and Kickboxing. From humble beginnings renting a room at Melbourne City Baths, Melbourne Martial Arts now operates as an internationally renowned independent training organisation.

In 2004 George brought Muay Thai into Melbourne by running fight night promotions called Brute Force. Fighters from across Europe, China, Thailand and Japan have all competed in his shows. In 2014 George and other leading Victorian promoters of the combat sport industry created what is now the only Amateur Association in Victoria called VAMAA (Victorian Amateur Martial Arts Association) responsible for developing the sport from the junior level. He has staged the Victorian Kyokushin Karate Championships since 1987 every year without fail. And every 3 years the Australian Kyoskushin Championships. In 2015 when the Victorian Government legalised the cage for MMA, George was the second promoter to hold an MMA show in Victoria.  

"it’s important to have some sort of goal and train towards it"

George also opened Uchi-deshi (live in student) program. Students lived in the centre and trained under his guidance 2 times a day, 6 times a week. Taking many kids off the streets and giving them opportunity to a better way of life through martial arts. Some of these students became champion fighters, fighting in various countries such as Japan, Thailand and later becoming instructors of karate.

 

George is a founding member of World Kumite Organization and is responsible for it's growth around Australia and New Zealand. Now travelling the world holding seminars, camps and gradings with senior instructors such as Shihan Ademir da Costa, Peter Aerts (K1 Champion), Kancho Sugihara and Shoshi Hasajawa.

 

George Kolovos has recently received the prestigious award of being inducted into the 2018 Australasian Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

"Karate training is very useful in building a foundation in many other pursuits."
