Student Testimonials

I highly recommend Arakan to everyone ! I have been training with my Instructor Jake for over a month now doing private lessons. At first I was hesitant to give it a go but Jake's ability to relate to his students and adapt his teaching style to make me feel comfortable is unreal! Each week I can see improvements and my confidence is growing. I will continue to train with Jake as he is constantly pushing me to improve ! Dylan Ackroyd

I originally started training in Arakan Martial Art as a form of self defence when there was a rise in attacks on women on the Gold Coast. 
Being a small lady (all of 45kg), I knew that I would be an easy target for uncomfortable or life threatening attacks so I decided to take action and learn a form of martial art / self defence.
It has not been a year yet in my Arakan journey, but looking back I have never regretted the choice I made to learn this life changing skill. An added bonus is also becoming fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been before. I am much fitter physically and mentally than I could ever be, and this is just the start (still an Arakan baby), looking at life in a more positive way.

I highly recommend all women to learn self defence. From a woman’s point of view, it is a rewarding and empowering feeling to be able to be in control and take control of an uncomfortable or life threatening situation through the skill of martial arts / self defence

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.
