Health and Fitness Benefits of Arakan Martial Art

Health and Fitness Benefits

At Arakan Martial Art®, we DO NOT encourage you to ditch the workout and take the easy path, this is because we believe you can discover yourself on many levels by pushing through your perceived barriers.

We believe that effort creates results, and our members love to push themselves beyond their perceived limits. It’s a warrior attitude that can be transposed to all areas of your life.

The results gained from training Arakan Martial Art® are unique to the results gained from other fitness programs.

Dedicated members have reported:

  • the ability to move their bodies in amazing, dynamic ways

  • increase in lean muscle mass
  • decrease in body fat levels
  • increase in cardiovascular fitness
  • increase in strength and power
  • increased levels of flexibility

Arakan Martial Art doesn’t end when the lesson ends; there is a flow on effect into our members’ personal and professional lives, resulting in:

Many students who train in Arakan Martial Art® experience a heightened sense of awareness, greater levels of confidence and self-belief, and gain the mental, emotional and physical ability to take control of more situations. In addition to these positive outcomes (a small list of many), members experience dramatic improvements in their health, fitness and physical appearance.

The following information provides a detailed account of the effects training Arakan has on our members in relation to calories burned in their respective lessons - as you can see, an Arakan Martial Art® training session burns around the same average calories as a vigorous game of basketball or football!

The benefits of Arakan go well beyond calories burned during training, however the results may inspire you to continue on your fitness journey with total confidence that you are receiving the best training available.

The following represents calories burned in various forms of fitness training, which you can compare to the results of training in Arakan. The first table represents the average calories burnt for a male 33 years old, 179cm and 79 kg after an hour of activity, according to referenced sources*.

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.”
