The Combat Institute of Australia (CombatAUS) is a purely High-Performance focussed organisation, aiming to deliver sustained international success for our Cadet and older National Team athletes. You can read more about CombatAUS at:

  • Nathan and Josh spent 16 months at the Melbourne-based CombatAUS High Performance Centre until mid-2023 when they moved back home. They are the only NSW-based male athletes (until Nathan’s retirement from competition) to be categorised under the CombatAUS/AIS athlete categorisation program and Josh is currently the highest ranked male Judo athlete and on track for qualification to the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Members of the Athlete Advisory Committee for CombatAUS were appointed for 2024. The Committee comprises athletes from Judo, Boxing, Taekwondo and Wrestling. Nathan was re-appointed Chairperson of the Committee and Josh was appointed to the Committee for the first time. Congratulations boys – great leadership initiative.
