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.
