Arakan for Juniors

Our Junior Program

Give your child a massive advantage in life…

 

As parents, all we ask for our children is that they are healthy, happy and well adjusted. Our hearts soar when we can see that they are enjoying life to the fullest and our hearts become heavy when they are being bullied or mistreated in some way.

 

We understand that the quality of life a child receives during his/her early period will have a significant impact on their adult lives. We understand that the effects of being bullied regularly for a period of time can be significant and that may not be something that the child will ‘just get over’, or ‘grow out of’ without some action taken.

 

We are not here to turn your child into an aggressive, fighting machine (although he/she will have the ability to comprehensively look after himself if he needs to), we are here to guide you child toward empowerment physically, mentally and emotionally.

 

Self Defence for Children

You may verbally educate your children on the topic of danger, tell them not to go near stranger’s cars or accept lollies from strangers etc. However, unless a child learns these skills experientially, that is by role playing and practicing the appropriate responses, he or she will not be effective in a real life situation. We are super passionate about teaching children how to look after themselves by becoming aware of potentially threatening situations and how to avoid them. 

 

This video illustrates the importance of giving children practical awareness education.

Self Defence Vs Martial Arts

Every martial art is a system of movements based on body mechanics to produce a desired effect. Each style will have its unique way of moving. Each style will have its particular rhythms, strikes, kicks, deflections, defences, take-downs etc.

Every style of martial art is capable of delivering massive amounts of damage to an opponent; ranging from strikes, take–downs, joint locks, kicks, and chokes just to name a few moves.
Some martial arts have been developed or has been adapted over time for competition. Audiences are most often treated to a spectacular contest, especially at the highest levels of competition.
