Making an investment in private martial arts lessons for your child has the potential to dramatically change your child’s life forever. Many parents have discovered the significant advantage of enrolling their children in private lessons with Arakan Martial Art instead of putting them into a traditional group class with another martial arts club.

Studies have shown that children benefit significantly from one on one, personalized training in any area of life. As Arakan is uniquely taught to improve both the mind and the body, your child can become stronger both mentally and physically through private lessons.

In a group environment, your child may become lost, disinterested or even fearful. However, in a one on one personal lesson, they will not feel intimidated by other, more experienced students and can progress at their own pace while building rapport and trust in their own personal instructor.

The following is a list of the five of the most important benefits of Private Martial Arts Lessons for Kids:

1. Safety is paramount when training any martial arts and learning self defence. Being supervised by a personal Instructor means your child is safer than if they were training in a large group. With a trained professional guiding your child, the chances of injury or accidents are dramatically reduced. Your child will be training with a personalized martial arts expert, who will ensure they reach goals quicker but also, safer.

2. Private martial arts lessons will promote an accelerated form of learning, allowing your child to gain results much quicker in a shorter time period. The undivided attention they will receive from their very first lesson will condition and prepare their mind and body to learn and grow at the fastest rate possible. Personalised attention will prevent your child from picking up any bad habits, hence boosting their training right from the get go, straight through to the most advance stages.

3. Many children feel shy of others seeing them train – especially as a beginner when they may be awkward and uncoordinated. If your child is a little shy or embarrassed, they can train privately with their Instructor, who is always understanding and empathetic. The instructor will be able to fine tune your child’s training to ensure your child is slowly pushed just outside their comfort zone which will enable them to safely build resilience and grow in their abilities and confidence.

4. Private martial arts lessons will allow your child to express their concerns, thoughts and feelings on a personal level. The ability to confide in their instructor will give them the ability to work through obstacles and grow mentally and physically stronger while having a fantastic role model to guide them through their formative years.

5. These days, most kids live a very busy life, participating in many activities before and after school. If you have a tight schedule, our private martial arts lessons will allow you the flexibility with time and location, we can work with your busy schedule. Lesson times can be arranged to fit your schedule, whether evenings, during the weekdays or weekends. We will do our utmost best to accommodate you, night or day.






My son Deklan is a naturally kind and gentle boy, who as an only child has never had to endure the competition and ruff and tumble of other siblings. Reading how daunting and challenging schools can be these days I was very keen to get him involved in self defense but wasn’t sure what was going to be the best fit for him.

In a chance encounter at a community fate we saw the Arakan stand and after talking to the guys I was really impressed with how friendly the team was and how passionate they were to get Deklan into his first lesson. And here is the part that grabbed me the most, the training is done outdoors in parks and school grounds while wearing shirts and shorts and everyday shoes, now that’s real life training. We booked in straight away for our complimentary lesson and Deklan couldn’t wait to get started.

On the day of his first lesson Deklan was quite nervous but Ryan his instructor made him feel completely relaxed and the lesson was a great mix of training and learning through fun games. At the end of the lesson Deklan ran straight up to me and asked if he could do more training tomorrow and the next day, which was a sure sign he loved it. He has now been training for over 3 years and as much as Arakan is about learning self defense and getting fit I have seen Deklan grow in confidence, co-ordination, self respect and self belief. 

Deklan now jumps at every opportunity to do extra lessons and group training and he totally loves going to school holiday training days and he wears his Arakan uniform with absolute pride.

I can honestly say I have been totally impressed with how Arakan has taught him practical, useable skills in real life environments and we look forward to many more years involvement with the Arakan family.

When ‘life happens’, it is an opportunity to rise up and show our strength and courage. With the recent pandemic hitting our shores, it meant some changes needed to happen with training, whilst conforming with the strict government regulations and hygiene protocols.

With our wellbeing and health being highlighted and taking precedence in most people’s lives, we felt it more important than ever before to help keep our members training. Numerous studies have shown that physical activity is linked to boosting our immune system as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing.
