Group Self Defence Classes



Group Self Defence Classes

Arakan Martial Art® group self defence classes are available to further enhance your journey and are an excellent way to supplement your personal training lessons.  We provide a safe, friendly and fun environment where you will learn effective self-protection techniques, empowerment, confidence, focus and discipline

Group classes are suitable for all fitness levels and will help you increase your conditioning and skills to remain calm in heightened situations. Groups will work together in unison, encouraging one another, building awareness, skill sets, techniques and threshold to deal with many ‘real life’ scenarios, in a supportive and safe environment. Not only do you learn practical skills, you will also gain greater focus and awareness.

You will be inspired training with fellow members who are fun, dedicated and positive. You will feel connected to many great people and you may even make life-long friends. You will feel incredible levels of camaraderie and gain real results.

 
Members do not compete against each other; you will not be asked to compete or ‘fight’ against your training partners, however you will learn to develop greater self awareness and situational awareness and learn to adapt your techniques in a group environment.

 

You will learn to protect yourself fast and efficiently and have the opportunity to learn to strike and defend in any distance and from various angles. You may also have the opportunity to learn to defend yourself against multiple attackers and other ‘real life’ scenarios, making group training a must for all members.

During Group Self Defence classes you will have the opportunity to develop some of the following:

  • learn practical and effective self-defence skills,
  • learn skills and techniques to ensure your safety and wellbeing, 
  • increase self-awareness, 
  • increase situational awareness, 
  • learn skills to remain calm in heightened situations,
  • learn to diffuse and divert a potential situation,
  • dynamic footwork
  • effective striking and kicking
  • devastating strikes, joint locks and holds
  • improve physical conditioning to manage situations more effectively
  • improve mental focus and concentration,
  • gain a greater understanding of body mechanics and energy slings, 
  • improve coordination,
  • increase health and fitness, and
  • defence against multiple attackers
  • close quarters techniques
  • diffuse potentially threatening situations
  • protection techniques to look after your partner and/or friend 
  • manage the physical, emotional and mental intensity of being potentially ‘attacked’. 

Our group classes are based on each member’s skill level and experience so you will be comfortable knowing that your training partners are at a similar level as you are. 

The social aspect of group lessons is where members support each, grow together and help each other on their journey. You will be part of an amazing group where all members are helping each other grow and where all members care for each other whilst helping to bring out the best in one another.

I’m in Barcelona in Spain at the moment, and was walking back to my hotel at 2am about half an hour ago. It’s known as a city of pickpockets and thieves, but the area where I was seemed ok. As I turned a corner, quite a large guy (well bigger than me) in a hoody came up of out the subway and stood in front of me motioning at my leather jacket. I couldn’t understand what he was saying, but I got the general idea. He tried to grab at me a couple of times, then swung a punch. I bridged his punch with my left hand and stepped straight in and backfisted him directly to his jaw. Josh would have been proud! I know he didn’t understand a word but I actually said the completely badass words “I trained ten years to meet you, is that all you’ve got!” 
 
He stumbled back and took off running back into the subway. I was not even worried at the time, it was just like all the training but easier. I had no idea how automatic everything would be! My heart wasn’t even beating fast after, I was just annoyed. It wasn’t until I got back to the hotel just now that I realised what actually happened! 
 
Thank you. I got to keep my leather jacket and out of hospital.

When ‘life happens’, it is an opportunity to rise up and show our strength and courage. With the recent pandemic hitting our shores, it meant some changes needed to happen with training, whilst conforming with the strict government regulations and hygiene protocols.

With our wellbeing and health being highlighted and taking precedence in most people’s lives, we felt it more important than ever before to help keep our members training. Numerous studies have shown that physical activity is linked to boosting our immune system as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing.

Mental Wellbeing and Support During the Global Pandemic

As global citizens, we have all been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. This might just be to our day-to-day socio-occupational routines and training regimes but most likely than not, it has affected our sense of security and certainty about the future to some extent. For some, it can be hard not to worry what the Pandemic and its socio-economic impacts can mean for ourselves, our families, friends and communities.
