Martin Hall

Martin Hall heads a team of 50 staff who teach just under 2000 active students the traditional martial art and newest Olympic Sport of Taekwondo at his 4 full-time Taekwondo Centres. Students at Hall’s Taekwondo range in age from 4 to 64 years. Hall’s Taekwondo is the market leader.

Martin believes our society today is driven by ‘edutainment’, and is also craving a firm foundation of mind body balance life skills. He drives his audience as he drives his staff and students with passion, determination, humour and example. He has the special talent of understanding his audience, actively communicating with them and bringing out their best.

Board breaking with large or small groups is his favourite finale; at a convention in May 2005 he had 1000 people successfully break boards in 8 minutes!

Martin has been in business with Jeanette, his wife and business partner, for more than 21 years; a success story in itself.

He is a practising 7th Dan Black Belt and has a history of personal success at international level as a competitor and coach, making him the most colourful martial artist in Australia. At his presentations he draws on his ‘coaching’ success stories, in particular, as Olympic Coach producing from his Centres half the 2000 Australian Olympic Taekwondo Team including Lauren Burns, 2000 Gold Medallist.

After years of physical and mental dedication to his sport and to his business Martin knows how to create winning habits to get results.

Be inspired by his fighting spirit!

Client Reviews

State Trustees took a risk in inviting Martin Hall into work with our staff, as it was not the type of session that we had been involved in before. We have spoken about health and wellbeing initiatives several times before, but had not gone so far as to take staff well out of their comfort zones in a session like Martin's Winning Habits. The results were nothing short of incredible. I have never seen a group of staff so pumped at the end of his session. They continued talking about it for days and you can see the messages Martin presents being played out in their lives. The broken boards are proudly displayed as well. This is just the program to break employees out of their workplace lethargy

Our conference, Reach for the Sky, was a great success and largely due to your presentation which matched perfectly with our team's focus and themes for the rest of the year. It was truly motivating and inspirational! We had another two days of conference and many of the guys were consistently referring to your presentation and particularly the focus, control and follow through themes. Your energy and enthusiasm made a big difference to the rest of the conference.


240 of our top performers stood and applauded with their successfully broken boards... unbelievable. They had all written their greatest fear on the board and then broken through that fear and way of thinking. It was an amazing atmosphere and all of them were cheering and clapping their boards at the end, an awesome sound and energy in the room. Our people have seen the best... you were fantastic.

I'd seen Martin four yrs ago and never forgot! Our session was high energy and high impact. My team took away simple and practical messages that support our way of working. Martin Hall lives his theory. His zest for life is infectious, his energy inspiring and his presentation powerful. I was trying to motivate and keep motivated a team of remote sales people, Martin showed them how to draw motivation from within.


To hear Martin Hall speak was a pivotal moment for me. His words are inspiring and the presentation was energetic and funny with such an important message for us all. I now look at my black belt wrist band every day and weigh up "Will this food cleanse me or clog me?" I also take time out for myself, walking with no excuses... I just do it! I have sat through an awful lot of presentations where the speaker always aims to inspire their audience: I can say on this moment that I was motivated like never before. Thanks for a great end to a great day!
