Our Story

Factor10™ is about passion. A passion to help everyone to reach life’s potential through the Martial Arts.

Anyone who touches our organisation is touched by the Martial Art tradition. Our members, our suppliers, our staff, the community – everyone!

Our organisation was born from a need to give ourselves life – a life where we reached beyond the day to day grind that limits us all in achieving our potential. The Martial Arts have given us more life, and through our programs, we can help to give others more life. It’s about getting the best and most out of life through the Martial Arts.

We have grown from offering classes on a concrete floor in a large storage shed at the TAFE College in Innisfail in 1989 to purchasing a brand new 500 square metre full time facility at Strathpine in 2003. And in between we hired halls in Innisfail and Brisbane, from Dutton Park to The Gap, from the city to Carseldine, and from Greenslopes to Albany Creek. We offered classes at QUT City, Kelvin Grove and Carseldine and finally made the move to a leased facility in 1997 at Albany Creek.
