TESTIMONIALS



My son Deklan is a naturally kind and gentle boy, who as an only child has never had to endure the competition and ruff and tumble of other siblings. Reading how daunting and challenging schools can be these days I was very keen to get him involved in self defense but wasn’t sure what was going to be the best fit for him.

In a chance encounter at a community fate we saw the Arakan stand and after talking to the guys I was really impressed with how friendly the team was and how passionate they were to get Deklan into his first lesson. And here is the part that grabbed me the most, the training is done outdoors in parks and school grounds while wearing shirts and shorts and everyday shoes, now that’s real life training. We booked in straight away for our complimentary lesson and Deklan couldn’t wait to get started.

On the day of his first lesson Deklan was quite nervous but Ryan his instructor made him feel completely relaxed and the lesson was a great mix of training and learning through fun games. At the end of the lesson Deklan ran straight up to me and asked if he could do more training tomorrow and the next day, which was a sure sign he loved it. He has now been training for over 3 years and as much as Arakan is about learning self defense and getting fit I have seen Deklan grow in confidence, co-ordination, self respect and self belief. 

Deklan now jumps at every opportunity to do extra lessons and group training and he totally loves going to school holiday training days and he wears his Arakan uniform with absolute pride.

I can honestly say I have been totally impressed with how Arakan has taught him practical, useable skills in real life environments and we look forward to many more years involvement with the Arakan family.

"8 Years ago I started my journey with Arakan Martial Arts. I gave up drugs drinking and smoking and used the money I saved to invest in private and group lessons for myself and my 12 year old son.
I shopped the specials and hunted the reduced price items at Woolworths so I could raise more money for training.
What triggered me to contact Arakan Martial Arts was because my son was being bullied at school and I wanted to gain more growth strength and confidence after abusing my mind and body for so many years.
I now have a 5 year old son who has just commenced training. He absolutely loves it and has just started school and I am so confident that he is going to have the skills and a head start over all the other children.
I have invested thousands of dollars in training over the years but it’s not even possible to see or understand what it has provided to me and my family. I have got my money back 10 fold if you were to try to put a price on it.
Our chief instructor Robert Kyaw has successfully passed down his skills, knowledge and wisdom to each instructor and in turn, down again to each student.
He has branched out, north, south, west and east of Brisbane and Gold Coast and also successfully set up in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth maintaining the same high quality product and service.
If you want to improve your life and change it for the better for ever than I absolutely recommend you get in touch today!
Power Focus and confidence is what they are offering and power focus and confidence is what you will receive.
The last thing I would like to say is that this club becomes your family. They stick by you thick and thin and are compassionate and extremely understanding and encouraging.
They have helped and guided me through so many challenges physically and mentally.
