Thibault Caruana - Arakan Martial Art Instructor

Thibault Caruana


Thibault (pronounced Tee-bo) began training at the very early age of 4 years old. After only a very short time training, his whole family could see the benefits and changes in Thibault and all began their Arakan journey.

After a decade of training, at age 14, Thibault become the youngest student to have achieved their Yellow Belt. He has trained consistently throughout the years and has never known life without training. Arakan has helped Thibault to become disciplined, focused and motivated throughout his life. He loves all things physical, and training has enabled him to become fitter, faster, stronger in life, physically and mentally.

Thibault brings positive energy and great passion to his lessons and loves sharing Arakan with others. He believes everyone should have a right to learn how to defend themselves and loved ones. He brings this energy to every lesson and helps his students learn fast and practical self defence techniques.

Thibault enjoys going to the gym, beach, hiking and spending time with family and friends.


After only working with Thibault for a short amount of time, my self-worth and confidence has grown massively. I initially started training with my son for his growth, but have fallen in love with Arakan for myself! Arakan isn't just a martial art, after working with the Instructors, I honestly believe it's a lifestyle. I am grateful I have found Thibault and Arakan.

When I started Arakan, I was a stressed out, overweight businessman who was very unhealthy and was close to going on medication for high cholesterol. After 3 months of training I lost weight, was much fitter and doctors informed me I no longer needed to go on medication.
I have been training for over 3 years now and have literally gotten my life back. I am now fit, healthy and strong both mentally and physically. I feel 15 years younger and have found that I no longer feel stressed about anything in life. 
My relationships, work and all other aspects of my life have become much richer and successful and this is due to the unique and complete way Arakan instructors help you to grow stronger in mind and body. 
The instructors are personal, caring and extremely dedicated to helping you unlock your true potential.

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.”
