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 nightclub, on a train, in a jail, a home and even your car! You 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 your loved ones.

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

These seminars help you fully immerse yourself into training and will give you amazing results that transpose into other areas of your life. 

Below are some seminars we have held. 

Night Club Seminar

Our Nightclub Seminar is taught in a real night club with real life scenarios. This is as realistic as it gets; the environment, music, noise, and atmosphere are all exactly as you would expect to find in a nightclub. The entire nightclub is reserved for our exclusive use during this seminar, allowing us to teach you practical self-defence techniques for real life scenarios that you may encounter in a nightclub, bar, restaurant, show or similar event. 

The techniques learnt 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 learn how to defend yourself, loved ones and friends so you are prepared with these skills to handle these situations:

Home Invasion / Defence Seminar

One of the most intense situations a person can face, is dealing with someone invading their home, their private sanctuary.

Did you know in 2017, one home invasion occurred every three minutes across Australia?! It takes a burglar less than five minutes to break into your property, and one in 10 of those households that were broken into, had someone home. (Source www.abs.gov.au). Those are frightening statistics!

During this seminar you will be in a real house where you can learn skills and techniques for how to handle a potential home invasion. This is as real as it gets, whilst still being a safe and controlled environment.

During this seminar, you will learn how:

 

  • deal with an attacker or attackers attempting to enter your home 
  • use your surrounds to your advantage if they are already in your home
  • defend against various weapons such as knives and baseball bats
  • defend yourself if someone is in your bedroom 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
  • raise your threshold.
     

This is a confronting and very rewarding seminar - a vital session for anyone wanting to learn how to protect their most valuable assets; themselves, their loved ones and their 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 your loved ones effectively. During this seminar we hire a train for our exclusive use, so members can learn fast and powerful techniques in a safe, controlled and realistic environment.

If you want something that is real world, out of the 'community hall' classroom and relevant, Arakan is the best investment you can make for your teen! I have seen my son's confidence, self awareness and ability grown with every session. I now know he is safe on the train and any building site where he works.

Being in the Moment

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
