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."
Robert Ne Htoon Kyaw, Chief Instructor, Australia



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.

Get started on your Arakan Martial Art® journey today!

Arakan Martial Art self defence classes and private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and Perth.

 



TESTIMONIALS

I was at the bus stop down from my house waiting to go to the gym, when a car pulled up. A guy jumped out of the car and told me to leave my ex girlfriend alone (I had been asking her to see my son). I told him to go away and stop bothering me but I knew that when he mentioned my ex there was going to be trouble so at that stage I got myself ready for anything. He then threw a right hook punch which I saw coming so I bridged it, stepping in at the same time with the right elbow then stepping back with the hammer. I tried to link it with a palm strike but I missed because I had already knocked him out with the hammer. I then got ready because there were more people in the car. They jumped out and began apologising to me saying not to hit them, and that they just wanted to get their friend so they grabbed him and drove off. After that I was excited about what I had done and how easy it was considering he was much bigger than me.

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE
