While all athletes are very aware of the importance of exercise in reaching their peak fitness, the jury is still out on the dietary aspect of health and fitness. A quick Google search for the healthiest nutrition regime would produce thousands of contradictory results. Sorting through all of these varying opinions could be not only time consuming, but very confusing for those without a background in health and fitness.

We at Arakan Martial Art realized this problem and put in the work for you, researching the large number of available supplements and nutritional aids available on the market. The health supplement market targets a wide range of fitness and nutritional goals. However, these goals can be consolidated into four main groups: preparation for an intense workout session, losing weight, gaining muscle, and recovering after an intense workout session.

All athletes value optimum nutrition so that they can perform at their peak. Regardless of an individual’s fitness and nutritional goals, health supplements can provide the additional boost needed to see results that cannot be obtained from simply dieting and exercise alone.

For those athletes that are looking to provide their bodies with nutrients in preparation of an intense workout, a dietary supplement is often the preferred method as opposed to eating large amounts of food that weigh the body down. If the athlete’s goal is to lose weight, these supplements often suppress feelings of hunger so that the dieter eats less. For those seeking to bulk up and build muscle mass, health supplements assist by providing the body with large amounts of protein that are crucial for muscle growth. Sports supplements are very valuable in helping athletes recover from high intensity exercise.

We at Arakan Martial Art recommend Australian Sports Nutrition for any athlete looking to perform their martial art at a higher level or simply those that would like to see an improvement in their personal health. For those that are serious about making an effort to live a more active and healthy lifestyle, a combination of Arakan Martial Art and Australian Sports Nutrition health supplements will speed up the results of exercises that could take a significant amount of time to show up otherwise.

If you’re ready to see the best you, commit to a consistent and rigorous exercise regimen and let Australian Sports Nutrition do the rest!



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
