Canberra mothers and their newborn
children will have the chance to learn
karate with the introduction of a new
martial arts program.
Kinder Kicks is a program for
parents and children to learn and play
with a martial arts flair.
The idea, imported from the United
States, is a first for Canberra.
Martial arts instructor Caroline
Turnbull said it was a way for
families with bubs to exercise and
"It is also teaching them very basic
martial arts skills,'' she said.
"Learning the movements of
punching and stances while learning
games, activities and engaging in
The youngest class accepts newborn
babies up to the age of 18 months.
"It is about mothers being able to
exercise with their little ones,'' Ms
"They can play games such as doing
a crunch with their baby on their belly
and blowing in their face to increase
the bond between them and learn the
love of exercise.''
There are two other classes for
toddlers and youngsters from 18
months to three-year-olds and three to
The final class prepares the
children for a fully-fledged martial arts
"They learn how to stand still and
listen and what to do when
punching and things like that,'' Ms
She said while the program was in a
couple of capital cities in Australia, it
was a first for the region.
A ceremony to launch the course
takes place on Saturday.
"We've got an obstacle course for
the kids to explore and some of the
equipment that they can get familiar
with and play with, games, balloons
and an information session,'' Ms
The launch takes place between
11.30am and 1.30pm on Saturday at
17-23 Oatley Court, Belconnen. Call

Fresh hope that
ban on public
access will end
There are fresh hopes public access
to Ginninderra Falls could be
restored with negotiations under way
between the Hyles family and
development company The
The Hyles family, which owns
land accessing the Falls, was forced
to shut the public out after several
individuals had injured themselves at
the waterfall and tried to sue the
The Riverview Group is
embarking on a major suburban
development straddling the ACT/
NSW border in West Belconnen, next
to the spectacular Ginninderra Falls.
The complex proposal requires
planning variation approval by the
ACT and NSW governments and the
National Capital Authority.
During a recent presentation to
Belconnen Community Council,
Riverview director David Maxwell
said the company was working with
the Hyles family to ensure
Ginninderra Falls could some day
become publicly accessible again.
The new development, known
simply as the West Belconnen project
at this stage, is expected to take 10 to
15 years to realise.
If approved it would eventually be
home to 30,000 people and would be
a third the size of Belconnen.
Mr Maxwell said he hoped an
agreement for access to the Falls
could be struck if plans for the new
suburb were approved.
