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.

Chris Walsh – Yellow Belt Grading Story

I started Arakan just interested in the discipline of keeping fit and learning this fantastic skill at the same time. This appealed to my rational mind and it made sense that this could actually be applied in a real life situation. 

I have been training for over 5 years and like some students starting out I had to find a balance with regularity of training with cost and other commitments. What I didn’t expect was that as I trained but I became more empowered, decisive and a leader in my business.  READ MORE

Ensure Your Child’s Safety

Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about empowering children! On the 12th May 2018, Arakan Martial Art® held a seminar geared towards teaching children self protection skills and techniques, to ensure their safety and wellbeing. 

Arakan Martial Art® provides a safe, friendly and fun environment where children learn experientially, how to become more aware of danger and respond with efficient and effective self-protection techniques. Feedback from both parents and children has been extremely positive. 

As parents, it is probably one of our greatest fears that our child disappears. Our hearts skip a beat, a lump forms in our throat, dread creeps in; we feel panic stricken. 
If you’re lucky, your child has just simply been blocked from view temporarily by an object or popped over to a friend’s house without telling you. However, there is always the chance that it may be something more sinister; our worst nightmare. READ MORE
