Student Testimonials

Arakan's emphasis on fluidity and core strength makes it an extremely effective art. Not only has Arakan made me physically fitter and healthier, it has also sharpened by mental toughness and ability to perform under pressure. The lessons learnt in training are applicable beyond the art, and I have found it has made me more effective in the workplace. My instructor Aaron has taught me the value of discipline and commitment and is a fantastic instructor and mentor! Highly recommend to anyone interested.

I've been training one on one with Senior Instructor Aaron Moses for only a couple of months and i already feel my fitness improving and I'm more confident in myself. Aaron has taught me different techniques I can use to defend myself in real life realistic situations. I feel it is important to have the knowledge and ability to protect myself if need be. Aaron is friendly, professional, encouraging, positive, patient and extremely passionate about Arakan. I love training with him and I look forward to every session. He always has something new and exciting to teach me and I leave every session feeling great about myself and what I have learnt. Highly recommended to anyone looking to work on their fitness, confidence or self defence. You cannot afford to not give Arakan a try. It will challenge you, change you, make you more aware of your surroundings and confident in your ability to protect yourself and your loved ones. Thank you

Aaron inspires and supports others to become more positive and confident, and strive to be the best version of themselves. He responds to feedback very positively and is continually striving to be the best version of himself also.

I cant express my recommendation and gratitude enough for Aarons instruction and training over the years. Nothing is ever too difficult for Aaron and he always goes above and beyond and pushes me to train hard to reach my goals.

Gus Gilkeson

Aaron is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is passionate and enthusiastic about teaching Arakan to each and every student he works with at every level. Aaron does not discriminate and works with me when I am at peak fitness or during times I am carrying an injury. My willingness to continue working with Aaron as I strive to improve and continue on my Arakan journey in the future is what I enjoy most. The art of Arakan is incredible. The Arakan community is very inviting and it reflects on Aarons ability and attitude to make me and everyone feel comfortable every time. Aaron has started introducing in his group classes real life situations where we are often placed under pressure and are forced to defend ourselves in a way where we can start to trust Arakan to get us out of potential situations. I love it!!

I thought men’s fitness was simply cardio and strength, but in my late 30’s I realised the mind was equally important. My body was semi-fit but my mind was unchallenged thus making my entire body fatigued. Looking for fitness, with a purpose, I was introduced to a Burmese martial arts called Arakan. This practical and adaptable martial arts focuses on self-defence and promotes fitness and health. Three years on, my body and mind are physically and mentally stronger. For me, the money spent on Arakan has been an investment in my health. Arakan’s mantra is Power/Focus/Confidence. Instructors taught me Power comes within, Focus comes from a strong mind and commitment, and Confidence comes from overcoming struggle because only then do we feel success. Men’s health definitely requires a physical presence but more importantly a strong mind. Everything stems from our mind, whether it be our words, actions, reactions or beliefs. I will always be grateful for the culture AMA promotes with people’s health

Watch how Arakan has changed the lives of our students

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.”
