Self Defence Seminars

At Arakan Martial Art® our mission is ‘to empower our members and to add value to their lives…’ we believe there is no greater way to achieve this than by learning to protect yourself and loved ones.

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

During these Seminars, you will have the opportunity to learn to defend yourself against a potential attack with a weapon, such as a baseball bat or knife. What if you are dragged to the ground or somehow ended up there in a potentially worse situation? What if someone was in your home? 

In order to become ‘street effective’ and be able to defend yourself in a real situation, you will need to be able to apply your skills with lightning fast reflexes; automatically, instantly and effectively. 

The purpose of these seminars is to enable you to learn to do just that. By ‘role playing’ various ‘real life street scenarios’, you will have the opportunity to apply your skills so that they become fast and effective reflexes. Your safety and well-being is our number one priority. 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.

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. It better equips you to deal with other situations that may arise or better manage unforeseeable events.

Below is a list of just a few of the Seminars we have held. 

 

Night Club

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, with the exception of being taught ‘real life’ scenarios is a safe and controlled environment, ensuring your safety and well being.

The entire night club is reserved for our exclusive use for this seminar.  You will learn practical real life self defence techniques that you may encounter in a night club, bar, restaurant, show or other similar event.

Road Rage

We have all either seen or been involved in a Road Rage situation. It can be a very confronting experience. 
 
This Seminar is designed to equip you to effectively protect yourself and loved in various situations involving your car. 
 
Would you know what to do if someone challenged you on the road or in a car park? 
What if they jumped in your car whilst you were stopped at a set of lights or car park?
What if they had weapons?
What if you had your loved ones or children with you in the car?
Being confined to a car does not limit you in being able to protect yourself or loved ones effectively. We use real cars, in a real car park, role playing real life scenarios. You will learn how to defend yourself and loved ones in ‘real life road rage’ situations whilst being in a safe and controlled environment.

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)

That’s frightening statistics. Would you know what to do if someone attempted or even entered your home when you where there? What if you wake up to find someone in your home? What would you do if you surprised the burglars and the situation escalated? What if you have loved ones / children in the home? Would you know how to safe guard them, as well as yourself? Would you know how to defend your property, yourself and loved one if they are carrying weapons? What if you are asleep and someone attacks you whilst you are lying in bed?

During this seminar, we put students through these scenarios and many more, in a real house and give you real skills to handle a 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 
  • if they are already in your own and how to use your surrounds to your advantage
  • defences against various weapons such as knives and baseball bats
  • defend yourself if someone is in your bedroom and / or lying on top of you
  • increase self awareness and situational awareness
  • manage the physical, emotional and mental intensity of being attacked in your home

This seminar helps to raise your threshold and places you in a safe and controlled environment
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.

These seminars are very real. We ‘role play’ real life scenarios and you will learn how to defend yourself and loved ones with real skills.

TESTIMONIALS

I thought men’s fitness was simply cardio and strength, but in my late 30’s I realised the mind was equally important. My body was semi-fit but my mind was unchallenged thus making my entire body fatigued. Looking for fitness, with a purpose, I was introduced to a Burmese martial arts called Arakan. This practical and adaptable martial arts focuses on self-defence and promotes fitness and health. Three years on, my body and mind are physically and mentally stronger. For me, the money spent on Arakan has been an investment in my health. Arakan’s mantra is Power/Focus/Confidence. Instructors taught me Power comes within, Focus comes from a strong mind and commitment, and Confidence comes from overcoming struggle because only then do we feel success. Men’s health definitely requires a physical presence but more importantly a strong mind. Everything stems from our mind, whether it be our words, actions, reactions or beliefs. I will always be grateful for the culture AMA promotes with people’s health

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
