Arakan Martial Art




"Past a point, Arakan becomes no longer just about kicking, striking or fighting. It's about discovering yourself on many levels, it's about exploring your limits and moving through those limits."

We believe everyone has the right to feel safe.

We understand we live in a society where it’s become vital to have the skills to effectively protect ourselves and our loved ones, which is exactly what we teach. At Arakan Martial Art® you will learn the techniques, strategies and mind-set to effectively and efficiently take control of any street situation quickly.

Arakan Martial Art® was created for the ‘real world’, with a focus on fast, powerful, practical and adaptable street self-defence techniques.

It stems from a traditional Burmese martial art which Master Robert Kyaw (Ne Htoon Kyaw) - who created this modern self-defence style - has a direct lineage to.

Over his lifetime, Master Kyaw has adapted this traditional style to suit today’s urban environment, resulting in a fast and effective self-protection style perfectly suited for the modern world in which we live.
