Community

Arakan Martial Art believes in contributing as much as we can to the community. Throughout the history of the club, we have made a conscious effort to help those in our local community as well as overseas.

 

Our involvement has ranged from sponsoring over 22 children through World Vision, giving generously to charities such as The Domestic Violence Centre, Dreamworkers, Orangutans in Indonesia, the R.S.P.C.A, Guide Dogs Queensland, White Ribbon Foundation as well as raising over $32,000 to aid the children of Burma after cyclone Nargis in 2008.

 

As our club continues to grow, we will be continuing our involvement with valuable community projects that help those in need.

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
