Ladies Self Defence

By Arakan Martial Art on February 1, 2015 in Self Defence | comments

In this day and age, the unfortunate truth is that it is necessary for all ladies to prepare themselves, and acquire the skills to defend themselves from would be attackers. Ladies self defence skills need to be taken on by both young and old, as crime does not discriminate.

Ladies self defence training needs to be practical, simple, highly effective, and applicable in a variety of real life situations and not necessarily in the context of a ring competition. This entails using your physical size and structure to your full advantage, maximizing your speed and power. You must also learn to use your attacker’s momentum against themselves together with highly effective strikes and deflections which works with momentum (rather than opposing strength) to ward off or incapacitate your attacker.

The style of self defense chosen must be provided by an experienced instructor, who is patient in teaching you the skills and passing on knowledge necessary for defend yourself. 

These skills need to be learnt, and developed on an ongoing basis, to be able to utilise the acquired skills in a self defence situation, a real investment in time and training must be made. 

A six week once off course (for example) may be a great way to begin your journey toward empowerment and teach you some basic skills. However in a real life pressure situation, only a serious investment in developing the knowledge, confidence and skills to defend yourself effectively may achieve the desired result.

The sad truth is that some ladies decide to take Self Defence lessons after a traumatic event. Prevention is better than cure, so please take the first step today ladies, and prepare, and empower yourselves with the confidence and skills to effectively protect yourself.




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
