Robert Kyaw
Chief Instructor

Robert (Ne Htoon) Kyaw was born in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) and was taught a form of Thaing by a close family member from a young age.

In 1993, at the age of 22, Robert started teaching his closest friends his form of Thaing and so Arakan Martial Art® was born.

At that time, Robert had graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and was offered several career opportunities but a corporate career was never Robert’s dream, so he continued to spend his time teaching martial arts to his closest friends and working several part-time jobs.

His passion and dedication to Arakan Martial Art® was infectious and he began to attract more and more students. Robert has now been training martial arts for over 40 years and teaching Arakan since 1993. Robert has adapted his traditional art to suit our modern lifestyle and requirements.

Robert is a dedicated husband and father. When Robert is not training Arakan, you will find him teaching Arakan to the next generation, his sons, or spending time with his family, mountain biking, snowboarding, at the beach, training at the gym, reading and meditating. Spiritual growth and self- awareness are high on Robert’s hierarchy of values.

Master Kyaw considers teaching a true privilege; he believes that his calling in life is to be of service to people through sharing Arakan Martial Art®.

We believe it is an honour and a privilege to share Arakan Martial Art® with you and to help you on your journey towards greater levels of empowerment. Click here to start your journey today!

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
