Kerrod Jarrett

Senior Instructor

Kerrod began training in 2014 when he was looking for something to keep him fit and active after having restricted movement in his body after a tragic skiing accident. Not that you would know from looking at Kerrod today. He is a fit, strong guy and loves training Arakan and being active.

Kerrod loves inspiring and encouraging his students through their Arakan journey and watching how Arakan transforms their lives. Arakan helped transform Kerrod’s life in so many ways and he is grateful that he now gets to have a career teaching something he is passionate.

Kerrod is a very supportive Instructor and loves seeing his students grow, in all areas of their life. He loves sharing Arakan with everyone he meets and has the pleasure of training alongside his brother and wife.

Kerrod believes his greatest achievement to date is becoming an Instructor and sharing Arakan with others. Outside of Arakan, Kerrod enjoys spending time with his family and seeing live bands play.

Student Testimonials

Over the past few years that Kerrod has been my instructor he’s taught me how to handle myself in situations I never thought I could have overcome if they were to happen. He’s boosted my confidence a lot and has inspired me to follow his footsteps in Arakan Martial Art. Kerrod has excellent teaching methods and explains things well when I do not understand something. Kerrod is a great and inspiring instructor.

Would recommend Arakan Martial Arts to any of my friends and family. No better club to be apart of. Kerrod is my instructor and he is an absolute gun, couldn't ask for a more humble and supportive instructor. Master Rob, Kerrod and everyone in the club has helped me grow physically and mentally and I'm thankful everyday for how far I've come.

Kerrod has been my instructor since January 2019 when he took me for my first lesson, after which I was hooked. Kerrod is a great instructor who always gives 100% of his effort and energy towards every lesson and to me as a student. There's never been a dull moment or lesson and he always makes sure I get the most out of my Arakan training. He always makes me feel comfortable, in control and strong, and knows how to push me in order to achieve my personal best. Kerrod has made my Arakan journey so enjoyable and fun this past year with many more years to come.

I have been training with Kerrod for nearly two years and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. Kerrod has pushed my fitness levels and my body to new limits that I never thought were possible. I have been challenged mentally and seen my focus, memory, motivation and self confidence increase through training. Kerrod has the ability to develop Arakan skills in a very martial, yet fun approach. He has helped me find a different side of myself and the ability to move and push my body beyond my expectations. I will forever hold onto the arakan skills that I have learnt, as well as the discipline, mental challenges and friendships I developed along my journey

Katie Schofield


Starting my journey with Arakan has been the best and with Kerrod as one of my instructors I have never learnt to be and felt more confident, strong and motivated. He has helped push my threshold not only physically but mentally and emotionally. He is such a kind and supportive person and I am grateful that I get to learn from him every week. I will be forever thankful for the skills that I have and continue to develop.

Our son started training with Kerrod over 2 years ago and we couldn't be happier. Not only is Kerrod a top quality trainer but he's also a really good guy who always goes the extra mile. He loves to see his students succeed whether at training or in their personal lives and is a exceptional role model for young kids. The extra skill, fitness and confidence our son has achieved with Arakan and Kerrods training is extremely pleasing. He can't wait to get to training and comes home amped and looking forward to the next lesson. We look forward to our son continuing his Arakan journey with Kerrod and being a part of this awesome club.

I really enjoy training with Kerrod. I look forward to every lesson. I have lots of fun and learn a lot of skills. I don't think he can improve because he is the best

Keanu Waters (11 years old)


I've been training with Kerrod for over a year now and since day one he has been supportive and patient with my journey. I originally joined Arakan to help me improve my confidence and fitness. Not only have I achieved this I have also learnt many skills to assist me with my self defense out on the street. Kerrod is a awesome instructor both in his ability to explain and demonstrate Arakan. He has great intrapersonal skills that allow him to teach his students in the best way for their learning.

After an unfortunate turn of events earlier in the year, all 3 of my kids now have self defence lessons every week. 

Today their Instructor 'pushed a button' and one of my kids started to break down, emotionally.

Their Instructor immediately stopped, walked over and put his arm around them, told them to let it all out and stood with them with his arm around them as they cried. He then used a circuit breaker activity to move on from it and was beautifully gentle for the rest of the lesson. 

Afterward they *child* told me that they felt a bit embarrassed for crying but their Instructor had made them feel safe in doing so and that they believed they would be safe to continue to release the emotional pressure caused earlier this year, with their Instructor. 

What a genuine and strong second male role model for my kids, other than their father. Money can't even buy that kind of authenticity.
