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.

Welcome to 2018!

I trust all is great and that you have had a great start to 2018. It’s so amazing to see so many Arakan Warriors training hard, thanks for having such a great attitude towards training.
This year marks 25 years of Arakan Martial Art in Australia, so I would like to extend very special congratulations to members who have been part of our family for ten years or longer. I believe that most of the battle is in just turning up, consistently, every week and just doing the ‘work’. READ MORE
