Self Defence Seminars

Arakan Martial Art® Seminars provide you with an opportunity to learn fast and effective self-defence techniques in different environments and against different stimuli. 

Seminars have been held in a real Night Club, Train, Gaol, a home and even in your car! You will learn effective and efficient self-protection techniques in close quarters or even against multiple attackers. Being confined to a car, train or bar is no barrier to effectively being able to defend yourself and loved ones.

The purpose of these seminars is to enable you to develop  ‘street effective’ skills and techniques and apply them by ‘role playing’ various ‘real life street scenarios’. This ‘role play’ helps increase your threshold and enables you to be better prepared physically, emotionally and mentally should you be confronted in a real life situation in a safe and controlled environment.

These seminars help you to fully immerse yourself into your training and you will begin to see amazing results and this transposes into other areas of your life. 

Please see below some of the Seminars we have held. 

Night Club Seminar

Our Night Club Seminar is taught in a real night club with real potential situations. This is as realistic as it gets; the environment, music, noise, atmosphere – all exactly as you would expect to find at a Night Club. The entire night club is reserved for our exclusive use for this seminar,  during which you will learn practical self-defence techniques against ‘real life’ scenarios that you may encounter in a night club, bar, restaurant, show or other similar event. 

The techniques you will learn in this seminar have been developed over many years to provide accelerated learning in practical, hands on situations, whilst being in a controlled and safe environment. You will learn how to defend yourself, loved ones and friends against some of the following situations:

  • a glassing situation

We have all either seen or been involved in a Road Rage situation. It can be a very confronting experience.

Home Invasion / Defence Seminar

One of the most intense situations that anyone can face would be dealing with someone invading your home, your private sanctuary. 

Did you know that in 2017 a ‘home invasion’ occurred 1 in every 3 minutes across Australia! It takes a burglar less than 5 minutes to ‘break in to’ your property and 1 in 10 households that were broken in to had someone home. (Source www.abs.gov.au). Those are frightening statistics.

During this seminar you will be in a real house and will learn skills and techniques on how to handle a potential ‘home invasion’. This is as real as it gets in a safe and controlled environment.

During this seminar, you will learn how:

  • dealing with an attacker or attackers attempting to enter your home

  • increase self awareness and situational awareness

This is a confronting and very rewarding seminar. It is vital for everyone to learn how to protect their most valuable assets; yourself, loved ones and your home. 

Train / Public Transport Seminar 

Being confined to a taxi, train, bus, car or other modes of transport does not limit you in being able to protect yourself and/or loved ones effectively. During this seminar, we hired a train for our exclusive use so members could train fast and powerful techniques in a safe and controlled environment.

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.

When ‘life happens’, it is an opportunity to rise up and show our strength and courage. With the recent pandemic hitting our shores, it meant some changes needed to happen with training, whilst conforming with the strict government regulations and hygiene protocols.

With our wellbeing and health being highlighted and taking precedence in most people’s lives, we felt it more important than ever before to help keep our members training. Numerous studies have shown that physical activity is linked to boosting our immune system as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing.

For some, it can be hard not to worry what the Pandemic and its socio-economic impacts can mean for ourselves, our families, friends and communities.
