martin quinlan



Mr Quinlan has been training for over 25 years in the martial arts. He started in ITF Taekwondo at the age of 14 then moved into Goju Kai Karate before leaving Perth to teach at a country high school. He returned to the martial arts at the age of 30 to train under Mr Jovanov and has stayed committed to Premier Martial Arts since. Martin currently holds a 4th Dan Black Belt, as well as a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jui Jitsu. He is a Level 1 NCAS Coach and was a State Champion in Sports Taekwondo as a blue belt. Mr Quinlan also has 27 years’ experience as a high school teacher, which provides him with a wealth of experience and knowledge about the issues facing our children in today’s society. Martin’s two children – Jordan and Tahnee – also train and instruct at Premier Martial Arts and Fitness. Mr Quinlan is a man of great nature, and is a true believe that everyone is unique in their own way and is committed in bringing the best out of everyone at our Academy. His personal motto “the best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago, the second best time is right now” is especially applicable to martial arts training.
