Junior Group Classes

Arakan Martial Art® Junior Group Classes are available to further enhance your child’s Arakan Martial Art® journey. Group lessons help your child to develop interpersonal, team building and social skills and are an excellent way of supplementing your child’s private lessons.

Our small and specialised classes ensure your child receives adequate attention from the instructor and will not be lost in an otherwise larger class, made up of different levels and ages. Classes are structured in a playful and disciplined way, to ensure your child gets the most of from their training.

We provide a safe, nurturing, friendly and fun environment where your child will learn effective self-protection techniques, empowerment, confidence, focus and discipline. Students do not compete against each other, often causing rifts amongst peers or segregation. The social aspect of group lessons also helps your child develop interpersonal skills, support other students on their journey, develop their awareness and adapt their techniques in a group environment.

Your child will learn practical techniques and skill sets and then be able to adapt and practice those skills in the group environment. Your child will learn focus and discipline in a supportive, nurturing environment and to develop respect for their peers and adults alike.

Arakan Martial Art® will teach your child to adapt too many situations and environments, becoming dynamic, adaptable and capable of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of themselves and others; both through private and group lessons.

Our goal is to empower your child and ensure they are equipped with skills and techniques to ensure their safety and wellbeing. Attributes which will transition into greater areas of their life as they develop into adulthood.

Arakan Martial Art® self defence classes and private lessons are available in wide regions throughout Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, 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.
