Private Lessons

Private lessons are without a shadow of a doubt the quickest way for your child to gain real results. We specialise in Private Training. Each lesson is customised to your child’s circumstances, skill and fitness level, as well as their confidence levels and desired goals. Their individual ability, experience, and energy levels at any given lesson, is taken into consideration to maximize the benefits for your child.


By taking private lessons, we can train your child intensely or as easy as needed to enable their development. . We understand that a child’s mind and body may be in peak condition one day and can be pushed hard, yet may be tired or not at their peak at the next lesson and need the pace to be easier.


Your Instructor can watch your child’s every move to ensure that they are always learning the correct techniques and not falling into any bad habits that will be difficult to correct at a later stage. We will work with your child individually to make their weaknesses stronger and strengths stronger still. The Instructor will coach, mentor, guide and teach your child awareness, skills sets and techniques to help them deal with many life situations.


As a parent we understand that time is your greatest asset and you do not want to waste it by having your child learn off another beginner in class, simply because your Instructor is too busy teaching twenty other students in the same beginner’ class.


We also understand that you want a challenging, yet nurturing and safe environment for your child to train in. You do not want a fellow student trying to bully or hurt your child. By training one on one with our fully qualified Instructor, the chances of sustaining an injury is diminished greatly.

By training private lessons consistently and frequently, your child will receive the greatest benefits from their training


Arakan Martial Art® self defence classes and private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Perth.


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.
