Self Defence Seminars

Our seminars help students build bridges, from learning skill sets at training, to real life street situations.
To become street effective in a real-life situation, you need to be able to apply your skills automatically, instantly and effectively; Urban Warrior seminars will help you do just that.
All our seminars are taught with your well-being and safety as our number one priority.

Night Club

Our Night Club Seminars are taught in a real night club. They're as realistic as you will get in a controlled situation.

Everything about this is real, the noise, the atmosphere, the music, all 100% as you would find it in a nightclub, the only difference - these are controlled real life scenarios that teach you real- life skills.

The entire night club is reserved for the seminar and throughout the evening you will learn practical life skills to keep you and your friends safe in real situations.

The skills you will get include:

  • how to deal with a glassing situation
  • what to do when there are multiple attackers
  • becoming more aware and in control to quickly and effectively diffuse a threatening situation
  • how to deal with security guards
  • how to deal with drunk people
  • Looking after your girlfriend/boyfriend/partner
  • Dealing with the emotional and mental intensity that comes with real life situations in a night club
  • This is an intense seminar. It will give you practical skills. These skills will help keep you safe!
  • Our techniques for this kind of seminar have been developed over many years to provide accelerated learning through practical hands on situations in a controlled, safe environment.

Road Rage

What would you do if someone challenged you on the road or in a car park?
What if they jumped in your car?
What if they had weapons?
What if you had your loved ones with you in the car?
The Road Rage Seminar will equip you with all the skills you need to get yourself out of trouble in the face of a road rage attack.
This seminar gives you the feel of a real life road rage situation. We use real cars in a real car park in a real life scenario. The only difference is, you're 100% safe at all times.

You'll learn:
  • How to use your car to your advantage rather than being caught in a bad situation.
  • How to remain composed in the face of an assailant or multiple attackers.
  • How to deal with street weapons including baseball bats, tyre irons and more
  • You'll learn how to become more aware and more in control to diffuse a threatening situation quickly and effectively.
  • You'll even learn how to deal with the emotional and mental intensity that comes with a real life road rage attack.
  • The Road Rage Seminar, like all of our seminars, is dynamic, confronting, real, but most of all… empowering!

Ladies only seminar

Our Ladies Only Seminar is just that – for ladies only!
It's about practical, concise and effective skills - designed to get you home safely!
This seminar will equip and empower you with the ability to:
  • defend yourself against much larger and stronger opponents
  • precisely strike and kick the most vulnerable points on an opponent making size less relevant
  • deal with specific situations that women may be faced with
  • handle these situations through physical conditioning
  • handle the emotional pressures associated with being in a confronting situation

This seminar is an essential tool to ensure you get home safely. Like all our seminars, students are 100% safe and supported while they learn these life changing skills.

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 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 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
