Self defence for women | Arakan Martial Art

Arakan for Women

Ladies Self Defence

Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about helping ladies become more empowered and confident. We teach you fast and effective self-defence techniques that will keep you and your loved ones safe. 

You will learn to move your body in very dynamic ways and use your opponent’s size and energy against them - meaning you do not need size or brute strength to be able to protect yourself effectively. By developing a greater understanding of body weight, momentum and moving with the path of least resistance, you will learn to produce flowing movements that are precise, powerful, and speedy - a distinct advantage against an attacker who may be perceivably bigger and stronger than you.

Our goal for you to achieve at training Arakan Martial Art® is some of the following:

  • increase situational and environmental awareness
  • learn practical and effective self-defence skills
  • gain self-confidence, empowerment, focus and awareness
  • learn skills and techniques to ensure the safety and wellbeing of yourself and loved ones
  • learn skills to remain calm in heightened situations
  • learn to diffuse and divert a potential situation
  • learn to effectively and efficiently control any situation should it escalate
  • increase your health and fitness
  • learn to manage stressful situations and levels
  • improve mental focus and concentration
  • gain a greater understanding of body mechanics
  • improve hand eye coordination and speed
  • increase self-motivation and self-discipline
If you’re looking for a female instructor, we have full time female instructors in most locations.
You can choose if you prefer to train with a male or female instructor.
Self defence for women

Arakan Martial Art® is not a competition based style, so you will not be fighting or competing against another student. Our focus is fast and effective self-defence techniques. Arakan Martial Art® as a club provides a safe environment for everyone to come together and learn self-defence skills and techniques, whilst increasing overall health and well-being. 

We have both male and female instructors to guide you along your Arakan journey and will do our best to match you with an instructor who can best nurture and inspire you. Click here to start your journey today!

Don’t just take our word for it though! Listen to what some of our female members say.

Never been fitter or stronger. Don’t tell yourself “I’ll start when I get fitter” or “I’ll start when I lose more weight”. Arakan will help you get there! All that along with learning practical self defence skills, I don’t know what I used to do with my life before.

Being in the Moment
Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”
