Arakan Martial Art

Arakan, as a region, ancient kingdom and as a martial art has had a long and intriguing history. Today, Arakan Martial Art has been moulded and adapted to suit the needs of the modern society in the western world. Arakan Martial Art® is not (and never been) a ring or a competition based style; it is perfectly practical and adaptable to situations which you may face in society today. You’ll gain awesome self-defence skills as well as fitness and health results. 

 

Arakan Martial Art® utilises many parts of the body including open hands, closed hands, fists, legs, elbows, knees (and just about every part of the body) in a free flowing manner.

 

  

 

Arakan Martial Art movements involves striking, deflecting, grasping, manipulating, locking and using an opponent‘s momentum against themselves. Arakan Martial Art utilises knees and kicks which are aimed at below the waist level. Practitioners are proficient in close quarters combat situations as well as in longer range situations. Arakan Martial art is fast, powerful, unique, interesting, fluid and practical, and is highly effective for self-protection purposes against one or even multiple attackers should the need ever arise.

 

Throughout your Arakan Martial Art journey with us, we can teach you how to immobilise an opponent very quickly and effectively using your body mechanics correctly and dynamically as well as utilizing your opponent’s size, momentum and leverage points against themselves.

 

You don’t have to be the biggest, the strongest or the most aggressive person to be able to handle yourself in a real situation. You just need the willingness to learn and the patience to allow some time for the Arakan rhythm, moves and skill sets to become part of you.

 

We can teach you to disarm knives and bats, as well as use many exotic weapons including sticks, swords, knives and much more. We hold many seminars teaching our members to utilize and adapt to many varied environments and scenarios such as in a real night club, inside a car, a home and much more.

 

Over time, your body will become fluid, adaptable, dynamic and powerful. 

 

Arakan Martial Art self defence classes and private lessons are available.

 

 

 

Chris Walsh – Yellow Belt Grading Story

I started Arakan just interested in the discipline of keeping fit and learning this fantastic skill at the same time. This appealed to my rational mind and it made sense that this could actually be applied in a real life situation. 

I have been training for over 5 years and like some students starting out I had to find a balance with regularity of training with cost and other commitments. What I didn’t expect was that as I trained but I became more empowered, decisive and a leader in my business.  READ MORE

Ensure Your Child’s Safety

Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about empowering children! On the 12th May 2018, Arakan Martial Art® held a seminar geared towards teaching children self protection skills and techniques, to ensure their safety and wellbeing. 

Arakan Martial Art® provides a safe, friendly and fun environment where children learn experientially, how to become more aware of danger and respond with efficient and effective self-protection techniques. Feedback from both parents and children has been extremely positive. 

As parents, it is probably one of our greatest fears that our child disappears. Our hearts skip a beat, a lump forms in our throat, dread creeps in; we feel panic stricken. 
If you’re lucky, your child has just simply been blocked from view temporarily by an object or popped over to a friend’s house without telling you. However, there is always the chance that it may be something more sinister; our worst nightmare. READ MORE
