IJJF Gold Coast: Japanese Jui-Jitsu and Self Defence

Doc Shaun’s Mudgeeraba Dojo is the place to go for anyone looking for top-notch Japanese Jui-Jitsu and Self Defence training on the Gold Coast. At the dojo, Head Instructor Shaun Taylor (also known as Doc Shaun) teaches traditional Japanese Jui-Jitsu in the style of the Late Professor Kam Hock Hoe, alongside essential self-defence skills.

Doc Shaun’s martial arts journey began with Chito Ryu Karate and boxing in his teens, before joining the air force at 17. He went on to train in various martial arts during his time with the air force, but it wasn’t until he met Sergeant Michael Kaminiski in 1989 that he discovered his passion for Jui-Jitsu. After four years of training, Doc Shaun achieved his brown belt and went on to complete his black belt training in RAAF Butterworth Malaysia.

Since returning to Australia in 1999, Doc Shaun has taught numerous students in Northern NSW, Brisbane, and now the Gold Coast. Over the past 20 years, he has taught everyone from Royal Australian Army and Airforce personnel to Thai Navy Seals, bodyguards, elite sportspeople, and security personnel both in Australia and overseas.

Doc Shaun’s dedication to Jui-Jitsu and his students has earned him the respect and recognition of his peers. In 2008, he was awarded his 3rd Dan and Master Dan grades by Grand Master Raj for his knowledge and dedication to the IJJF and its students.
