Arakan Martial Art® was created for the ‘real world’. Our focus is on fast, powerful, practical and adaptable self-defence techniques that are suited to today’s urban environment. Techniques that are designed to keep you and your loved ones safe - against one or even multiple attackers.
Arakan is a unique, fluid, practical, powerful and highly effective self-protection style with a major emphasis on technique as well as conditioning. You will learn situational awareness - often seeing potential situations before they escalate - as well as the skills to diffuse or divert these situations prior to them becoming an incident.
With Arakan Martial Art® you do not need size or strength in order to effectively protect yourself or others. Instead you will learn to use your whole body in super-dynamic ways as your body and mind become more adaptable, flexible and agile.
The ‘street’ is very unpredictable by nature. There are no set rules or parameters, so you have to learn to deal with the chaotic nature of a confrontation. Arakan Martial Art® is very rich in terms of how one may respond to these situations. It is our belief that there are no barriers to effectively protecting yourself and your loved ones.
Arakan Martial Art® holds seminars in different environments so you are prepared for any situation, and can effectively protect yourself in a nightclub, on a train, in a jail, your own home, or even in your car! These seminars will teach you efficient self-protection techniques for close quarters, against weapons and even against multiple attackers.
