Your personal information will be collected by us via the website, telephone contact, by our Instructors and staff personally, and via input and management within the ASMS. In certain circumstances we may be provided with personal information from third parties.

However, if you do not provide your personal information to us, we may not be able to provide you with the necessary products and services that you request or require, or if we can providing those services may be less efficient, incomplete, and / or less satisfying as compared to persons that do provide personal information.

"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.

Knowing and recognising the signs that your child is being bullied is an important first step towards helping your child. The effects of bullying may be longstanding and may carry through from childhood to adulthood. These signs may be also point to other issues or problems, such as depression or substance abuse.


Neuroplasticity (also known as brain plasticity or brain malleability) is the brains ability to reorganise itself. New research shows this phenomenon continues throughout our adult life.
