Hi Team

I trust all is great and that you have had a great start to 2018. It’s so amazing to see so many Arakan Warriors training hard, thanks for having such a great attitude towards training.
This year marks 25 years of Arakan Martial Art in Australia, so I would like to extend very special congratulations to members who have been part of our family for ten years or longer. I believe that most of the battle is in just turning up, consistently, every week and just doing the ‘work’.

I believe that there is no ‘secret’ to gaining results in any field, you just simply must do the hours in a consistent, focused way. Gaining real results is a process that requires accumulation. Big results are simply the sum of all the little gains along your journey, many people become impatient and look for that one big moment, a quantum leap or a massive ‘game changer’. Even if you do experience these big moments, the accumulation of many ‘small moments’ would have set you up, got you ready for this massive leap.

It is the people who are disciplined and resilient enough to do the ‘grind’ that finds themselves in a favourable situation (in most instances, many years later). In most instances, people are indeed growing and improving but they may become impatient and frustrated because they feel like they may not be growing fast enough.

You may make the process of growth and learning more difficult for yourself if you have your analyser turn on high or if your inner cretic is a harsh one. Throughout your journey, it is beneficial to become more aware of your analyser and inner cretic and learn to become kind to yourself. Remember that you do not have to beat yourself up to gain results; effort, discipline and resilient is a very different operating system to beating yourself up.

Please also remember that having fun and ‘being pumped’ about your training all the time is not realistic, feeling a myriad of feelings is a normal part of the journey.

See you at training, thanks again for being such amazing students.

Martial Arts for over 40's

Martial arts’ is traditionally seen as something we enrol our children into whilst at school or we participated when we were younger. We all see the benefits of learning a martial art; improved fitness and health, balance, coordination, focus, discipline and agility, as well as learning self defence skills. However, more adults are beginning to see the benefits of training a martial art and beginning their journey as a mature aged student. 

There is no age barrier to training Arakan Martial Art®. We have students as young as 3 years of age and as old as 83 learning Arakan Martial Art®.  READ MORE

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE
