What is Arakan Martial Art?
Arakan Martial Art® is a Burmese martial art that is a perfectly practical, effective and efficient self-defence style that is easily adaptable in today’s urban environment.
Arakan Martial Art® is fast, powerful, unique, fluid, practical and highly effective in being able to defend yourself and others against one or even multiple attackers. We specialise in personal training that is specifically tailored to your individual needs and capabilities.
Arakan Martial Art® is not a competition based style. Our focus is on fast and effective self-defence techniques to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.
Through consistent training you will develop impenetrable defences; deflections, blocks, traps, intercepting hands, bridges, intricate footwork that allows you to dynamically flow around an opponent.
You will learn to move your body in a very dynamic way and use your opponent’s size and energy against themselves; meaning you don’t have to be the biggest person in the room to protect yourself effectively. By developing a greater understanding of body weight, momentum and moving with the path of least resistance, you will learn an advanced understanding of energy slings and circuits to produce your movements with precision, speed, power and flow.
You will be conditioned to develop lighting fast reflexes with the ability to strike and defend in any distance and from various angles. You will learn to use your whole body as a weapon; from elbows to knees, open palms, edge hands, closed fists, locks, deflections, traps, blocks, bridges, kicks, forearms, your head – the list goes on; you will learn to protect yourself and loved ones fast and efficiently.
Arakan Martial Art® is incredibly adaptable and though training you will learn to have greater control over your body, become physically fitter, stronger, more agile, flexible and more adaptable.
We believe that training Arakan Martial Art® helps provide more balance in our life. When you are fully immersed in your training you will begin to see amazing results and this transposes into other areas of your life. It better equips you to deal with other situations that may arise or better manage unforeseeable events.
Arakan Martial Art self defence classes and private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney,
