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.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students and to keep them training, we quickly adapted our training methods and implemented ‘social distancing private lessons’ and introduced lessons via online video such as Skype®, Zoom® or FaceTime.

Our first member’s only free Zoom® lesson had over 200 members join and crash the system. We quickly re-established connection and everyone enjoyed an amazing lesson.

Whether you have moved to a remote area or even another state or country, this has quickly established as another way to continue your Arakan journey.






I started training Arakan approximately 6 years ago, only really because my son had just started training and I thought it would be good to have something in common, as well as a fun way to keep fit.  I wasn’t particularly concerned about self-defense because I had never really felt the need for it, and in the beginning I was probably more concerned about improving my fitness-test results than learning how to protect myself.
However it wasn’t too long after this that our house was broken into one night, whilst my family and I were all asleep in our bedrooms. It wasn’t until the morning that we realized what had happened, and that all of us had slept through the whole thing.  Thankfully there was no harm done and only a bit of money stolen, but the next morning I can remember thinking how lucky I was that I slept through and didn’t wake up and have to confront the burglar - because I wouldn’t have had a clue what to do or how to handle myself, let alone protect my family…..and that’s when my attitude towards training changed.
Now, after many years of private and group lessons, some advanced weapons training, a few home invasion seminars and 3 other family members that train Arakan – look out if you ever try to break into our house!

Mental Wellbeing and Support During the Global Pandemic

As global citizens, we have all been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. This might just be to our day-to-day socio-occupational routines and training regimes but most likely than not, it has affected our sense of security and certainty about the future to some extent. For some, it can be hard not to worry what the Pandemic and its socio-economic impacts can mean for ourselves, our families, friends and communities.
