Personal Training

Arakan Martial Art® specialises in personal training and is by far the fastest way to achieve your desired results, as these lessons are tailored to suit your specific needs.

Personal training one on one with your Instructor consistently and frequently will enhance your techniques, skills sets and awareness exponentially. You will develop lighting fast reflexes and learn to move your body in a very dynamic way; from elbows to knees, open palms, edge hands, closed fists, locks, deflections, traps, blocks, bridges, kicks, forearms, your head – the list goes on; you will learn to use your whole body as a weapon and protect yourself and loved ones fast and efficiently.  You will become very adept in being able to defend yourself and loved ones against any stimulus, in any situation.

Personal training one on one with our fully qualified Instructors also ensures your safety and security. There is less chance of an injury in your personal lesson as you will have the undivided attention of your Instructor, ensuring your technique and skill sets are based on your level. 
During your personal training lesson there will be no personality or ego clashes with other students that you may experience in a group class, nor will you be training with another beginner who may not have the best control. You won’t feel pressured to keep up with a group or wait for another student.
If you are self conscious, a personal training lesson will give you the privacy you desire. Your personal training lesson will focus on your goals and are easily adapted to your specific needs. By training Arakan Martial Art® you will gain self confidence, empowerment, strength, flexibility, focus, discipline, fitness and an unwavering sense of self. 

Your Instructor will teach you at your level; whether you have previous experience or none at all, if you have any injuries or are fit and conditioned, whether you require an intense lesson or a lighter one for any reason, your lesson will be easily adapted to suit your unique needs and goals. You will get to train in a challenging yet nurturing environment ensuring you receive the maximum benefits.

Our goal is to equip you with the techniques, discipline and skills to remain calm in heightened situations and to diffuse many situations. Should a potential situation escalate, you will also learn techniques to take control and defend against any situation quickly and effectively.

This is also an excellent option if you lead a busy lifestyle; are time poor or have other concerns such as health, fitness, or require personal attention, personal training would then be more suitable. 



Many of our students opt to learn through personal training as tuition is personalised and set at your level. There may be other reasons you have limited time; preparing for a sporting event, as Arakan helps give you the competitive edge by training dynamically and enhancing coordination and speed. 

Alternatively, you may be about to embark on some travel, then you would need to know specific skill sets and techniques that you may encounter on your journey. Whether you are journeying through life or a specific destination, Arakan will equip you with incredible life skills to navigate any situation. 


Arakan Martial Art self defence classes and private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Perth.





I have trained in Arakan Martial Art since 2006 and I have enjoyed every minute of it. There is something special and indescribable about training in an art that is so beautiful, and so deadly if required. I have achieved far greater than I thought possible through my training and there is still so much to learn about the art, and ultimately myself!

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son.

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
