Being in the Moment

By Robert Kyaw on April 16, 2021 in Self Defence | comments
Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.
 

Time - the key to success

By Robert Kyaw on March 7, 2021 in Workshops & Events | comments

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Ensure Your Child’s Safety

By Arakan Martial Art on February 3, 2021 in Self Defence | comments
Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about empowering children! Each year, Arakan Martial Art® holds 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.
 

Burnt-out to Bulletproof

By Arakan Martial Art on February 4, 2020 in Member Stories | comments
It warms our heart to hear of stories of how people how literally transformed their lives through training Arakan Martial Art®
We often hear the excuses ‘I’m too old, too fat, too sick, not fit enough…’ the list goes on.
To tell the truth, we all have ‘stuff’ going on in our lives, however it’s how we deal with that ‘stuff’ that determines whether we live a happy and fulfilled life, or not.
Dave shares his story of how he went from being a burnt-out, ‘old, sick, depressed, stressed out 35 year old guy’ to a ‘bulletproof 45 year old man’ who is fitter, faster and stronger than he has been in his whole life!
Dave tells of how training Arakan regularly and consistently transformed his health and wealth in all aspects of his life. He became more empowered and confident in his business, at home, in his relationships and now feels bulletproof.
 

Martial Arts for over 40's

By Arakan Martial Art on December 28, 2018 in Health and Fitness & Self Defence | comments
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®. 





I’m in Barcelona in Spain at the moment, and was walking back to my hotel at 2am about half an hour ago. It’s known as a city of pickpockets and thieves, but the area where I was seemed ok. As I turned a corner, quite a large guy (well bigger than me) in a hoody came up of out the subway and stood in front of me motioning at my leather jacket. I couldn’t understand what he was saying, but I got the general idea. He tried to grab at me a couple of times, then swung a punch. I bridged his punch with my left hand and stepped straight in and backfisted him directly to his jaw. Josh would have been proud! I know he didn’t understand a word but I actually said the completely badass words “I trained ten years to meet you, is that all you’ve got!” 
 
He stumbled back and took off running back into the subway. I was not even worried at the time, it was just like all the training but easier. I had no idea how automatic everything would be! My heart wasn’t even beating fast after, I was just annoyed. It wasn’t until I got back to the hotel just now that I realised what actually happened! 
 
Thank you. I got to keep my leather jacket and out of hospital.
