About Arkan Martial Art


My journey as an Arakan student for some years now has provided me with the necessary tools in life to approach any challenge with confidence, focus and power.

It has even assisted me greatly in improving my golf swing and game overall which came as a wonderful surprise that I attribute to my Arakan journey. I have the highest respect and gratitude for my instructors and fellow students. I’m proud to be an active member of the Arakan community.
