Arakan Martial Art


Learn fast, powerful ‘street’ self-defence

Arakan Martial Art® is a fast, powerful, dynamic and ‘street’ effective self-defence style that teaches efficient, practical and easily adaptable techniques for the modern world.

Welcome to Arakan Martial Art®. We are excited for the opportunity to share this amazing art with you.

We believe everyone has the right to feel safe. We understand that we live in a society where it’s become vital to be able to effectively protect ourselves and loved ones and we will teach you 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’. Our focus is on fast, powerful, practical and adaptable self-defence techniques.

Arakan Martial Art® stemmed from a traditional Burmese martial art and Master Robert Kyaw (Ne Htoon Kyaw) has direct lineage to this traditional art form.

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

Master Kyaw has been teaching this art in Australia since 1993 and is passionate about empowering you to feel safe!

Arakan Martial Art® is not, nor has ever been a ‘ring’ or competition based style and has the potential to end a situation in your favour quickly and effectively. The very nature of a ‘real life situation’ can be very chaotic, there are no set rules or parameters on the ‘street’, our goal is to equip you with the techniques, discipline, conditioning and skills to effectively protect yourself and loved ones.

Arakan Martial Art® is fast, unique, fluid, practical and highly effective for self-protection against one or even multiple attackers. You will learn self-defence skills to keep you and loved ones safe. Through training you will learn to have greater control over your body, become physically fitter, stronger and more agile.

Arakan Martial Art® is not just about kicking or striking, it goes beyond the physical. Not only do you learn practical self-defence skills; you will develop a greater sense of empowerment, confidence and focus and awareness, which will have a flow on effect in your daily life.

TESTIMONIALS

Initially starting Arakan for fitness and self defence for myself and my wife, I didn't fully appreciate how practical it could be. Then after a few years the art starts to open up and you see where you may be in a few more years and enticing glimpses of the years after that.  
Being taught by amazingly dedicated instructors amongst a diverse range of willing students without ego is a great and humbling experience.

Burnt-out to Bulletproof

We often hear the excuses ‘I’m too old, too fat, too sick, not fit enough…’ the list goes on.
To tell the truth, we all have ‘stuff’ going on in our lives, however it’s how we deal with that ‘stuff’ that determines whether we live a happy and fulfilled life, or not.
Dave shares his story of how he went from being a burnt-out, ‘old, sick, depressed, stressed out 35 year old guy’ to a ‘bulletproof 45 year old man’ who is fitter, faster and stronger than he has been in his whole life!
Dave tells of how training Arakan regularly and consistently transformed his health and wealth in all aspects of his life. He became more empowered and confident in his business, at home, in his relationships and now feels bulletproof.
