Corporate Training

Give your Team the Winning Edge

Are you looking to level up your team?
Do you want to develop a greater connection with your team-mates and enhance productivity levels?

Create a more cohesive and fun work environment with Arakan Martial Art® Corporate Group Classes.



At Arakan Martial Art® we understand people are a company’s greatest asset, and by learning to work together in a unified way, teams can become an incredible unified force!

Team building elements are an integral part of Arakan Martial Art® Corporate Group Classes. Fellow teammates are encouraged to connect on the same level, in a space where they strengthen their confidence and awareness, along with practical self-defence strategies that can be used in real-life situations.

Our goal during corporate training is to empower the entire team, ensuring each individual walks away with more self-awareness, self-confidence, empowerment, discipline and focus, as well as some practical self-defence skills up their sleeve. During training teammates have the opportunity to learn and develop street smart skills in a nurturing, positive, creative and fun environment.

At Arakan Martial Art®, training partners do not compete against each other - so you will not be asked to fight your colleagues! Instead, teammates will work together as they foster incredible levels of camaraderie and a greater connection with their fellow colleagues.

Corporate training will help your team to become a stronger, more supportive, productive and resilient team. Anecdotal evidence has shown that businesses who undertake Arakan Martial Art® lessons in their workplace, even see a reduction in the number of staff sick days. 

Happier employees means a happier workplace - which is a win-win for all!

I’ve been a dedicated member of the Arakan Martial Art family for years now, practising on the Gold Coast. I’m also the managing director of Palm Lake Group – my family has been developing over-50s residential resorts across the east coast of Australia for more than 40 years. We have 35 communities in 25 locations with about 11,000 people calling a Palm Lake Group address their home.

I know that people are my company’s most important asset and with such a large organisation and staff in dozens of offices in three different states, I actively encourage team-building opportunities across my workforce. When considering team-building options for our head office staff at Southport, combining my love of Arakan with my business seemed the obvious choice.

After an initial visit and demonstration from the Arakan trainers (where the staff had no idea what they were getting themselves in to, even while they were signing the waivers!), I signed up our business for 10 one-hour weekly sessions. My staff loved them – so much so that we are midway through our next 10 sessions. Each week, our Arakan training sessions are enjoyed by everyone from the CEO and other senior managers, to our accounts ladies, to the planning and development team, and all other types of admin staff.

There’s a lot of role-playing and team-building elements to the Arakan training sessions but the best part is that it brings everyone together on the same level and it’s giving them confidence, awareness and practical self-defence strategies that they can use in real-life situations. I know that they also secretly love the opportunity to give their bosses a punch each week! What I’m also seeing on the back of our Arakan training sessions is less staff sick days.

On the whole, Arakan training is bringing many positives to my company and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my personal passion for martial arts with my staff, in a mutually beneficial and fun way.

Being in the Moment

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

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.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
