Arakan Martial Art - Self Defence Classes



"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.



My fiancée and I were in Brisbane on a Saturday night to celebrate her 30th birthday. After a great night of drinking and frivolity we went to get a taxi back to a friend’s place, with whom we were staying. As with the Gold Coast the taxi queue it was lengthy but eventually our turn came. I let the girls go first as our friend was getting in the front to direct the driver. My fiancée got in the back behind the driver and as I opened my door a guy game from nowhere and shoved me to the ground. He then tried to get into the cab with the 2 girls pushing my fiancée across as she tried to stop him. I jumped to my feet, ran over, grounded myself and hit him with a straight palm and an elbow combination. He fell to the ground and I jumped in the taxi. I have only had approximately 2 months of Arakan teaching but I instinctively knew what to do following my Instructor’s advice. Arakan gave me the confidence, technique and power to protect both my fiancée and our friend.
