Fundraising and Community Events



Arakan Martial Art® regularly holds fundraising events to give back to the community. The photos below show Arakan instructors generously donating their time, knowledge and energy to teach members in a heart-warming event that raised funds for an orphanage in Myanmar. The amazing students generously provided donations, and all funds raised from this lesson were donated to the orphanage. Together over $10,000 was raised, which was used to build a shelter and a class room for the orphans in Yangon, Myanmar.
