Swords, Daggers and Walking Sticks 2017

I always look forward to the weapon seminars throughout the year especially the swords, daggers and walking sticks. It never ceases to amaze me how deep this art is. These seminars really give just a snapshot of the scope of Arakan, it's insanely technical without a weapon in hand let alone trying to use one. It was always a long term goal of mine to get to witness some of these techniques but now it's about the experience. the whole room has an entirely different energy to any other class when Rob is demonstrating with a really sharp dagger with the utmost mastery and precision stopping the blade literally millimetres from main arteries with so much speed and confidence, you can feel everyone in the rooms heart skip a beat.

It doesn't matter what weapon is in hand the level of focus and concentration needed to wield the weapon without injuring your training partner brings a whole other level of discipline and control. Which is why it's still such a privilege to get invited to this seminar everyone has to be graded and most people in the room have been training well over 5 years. Anyone lucky enough to attend would agree we are all so fortunate to get a glimpse of such high level arakan techniques we may never get to be truly taught in our private lesson. Definitely an experience I hope everyone who trains can have, for me this is for filling my childhood dream of wielding a sword and leaving me with the most amazing memories.

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
