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.
