I believe Arakan is the best vehicle to help you achieve your goals and dreams.


Pat has been an incredible instructor. His passion and knowledge of Arakan has brought a unique and exciting experience to training. Pat definitely deserves to achieve all the goals he works so hard towards.

I have trained with Pat almost 6 years. In that time I have watched Pat grow not only as a man but an incredible instructor. Pat has been an abs2olute privilege to be trained by. Not only has Pat helped me on my Arakan journey in ways I could never repay or thank him enough. Pat puts up with lots of crap along the way. Personally Arakan and Pat have helped me become the woman I am now, which I am forever grateful and blessed. Who knows what the next part of the journey holds, but I am super excited to see and share it with Pat and watch us all grow even more.

Pat is a remarkable instructor and a genuinely good person. It is a privilege to be able to call him my teacher.

Pat has been training Tyson for about 6 years. In that time Pat has shown nothing but respect for Tyson and as Tyson has an intellectual disability on the Autism spectrum Pat has encouraged Tyson not only for Arakan but in helping Tyson with his life. Pat is a fantastic ambassador for Arakan.

Arakan has helped Talia immensely.

It has given her discipline, greater confidence, focus and self-esteem. She now has greater awareness of bullies at her school and is assertive when required.

It has been the best activity that I have invested in for my child.

Martial Arts for over 40's

Martial arts’ is traditionally seen as something we enrol our children into whilst at school or we participated when we were younger. We all see the benefits of learning a martial art; improved fitness and health, balance, coordination, focus, discipline and agility, as well as learning self defence skills. However, more adults are beginning to see the benefits of training a martial art and beginning their journey as a mature aged student. 

There is no age barrier to training Arakan Martial Art®. We have students as young as 3 years of age and as old as 83 learning Arakan Martial Art®.  READ MORE

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE
