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.

 

Since 2014 Arakan Martial Art® began raising funds to build and run an orphanage and education facility in a remote area of Central Myanmar. Thanks to the generosity of our members and friends we now have one fully operational building housing 92 children and are currently working on a second building.  


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

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

Almost three years ago I received a call from my instructor Corey asking if I’d like to have a complimentary lesson with him. Almost three years ago I had my mind blown away. I’d just witnessed someone moving in a way I’d never seen before and carry himself with a confidence and humbleness I only ever dreamed of having. I never realised that along the way I’d stop dreaming and start acting to become the person I always wanted to be. READ MORE
