Arakan Martial Art® hosts seminars specifically designed to mimic ‘real life’ situations. This experiential type training, contained in a controlled environment, enables your child to practice their skills sets and techniques to ingrain a ‘response to stimulus’.

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

Not only will your child will learn to protect themselves against potential grabs, punches, kicks, tackles etc. in an experiential way; your child’s awareness becomes more heightened and the ability to identify a potential situation increases. Scenario based training also increasing your child’s threshold and prepares them emotionally and mentally should a situation occur in real life.

Arakan Martial Art® hosts numerous seminars to cater for various ‘potential situations’. For example; our Anti-Abduction seminar is designed to teach your child how to protect themselves against a potential abduction. We ‘role play’ scenarios and teach your child how to effectively and efficiently protect themselves in this situation. At the very least, give them a fighting chance. They get to practice their skill sets and techniques on Instructors of various sizes and shapes, in different surroundings, such as a playground or car park, to mimic a ‘rea life’ potential situation.

We have hosted Junior Training Days focussed on building skills sets and techniques that your child will be able to use in various scenarios. They learn awareness and effective self defence skills against punches, kicks, grabs, ‘bullying’, tackles, etc in a safe and controlled environment. This type of training raises your child’s threshold, boosts their confidence and ingrains their response to stimulus.

Our Teen Night Club Seminar is designed for teenagers approaching 18 years of age and potentially getting ready to ‘hit the party scene’, ‘go out’ or stay out late. This seminar is held in a real Night Club, reserved for this seminar and is as realistic as one can get. The atmosphere, loud music, lights are all on, whilst we role play real life scenarios and teach your child effective self protection in a controlled environment. Your child will learn to defend themselves against numerous situations such as; a potential ‘glassing situation’, close quarters skill sets, multiple attackers, deal with the emotional intensity of being in a Nightclub situation, be able to diffuse a potentially threatening situation, dealing with drunk or disruptive patrons and increasing your child’s awareness.

Practicality wise, once your child is ready to go out, they will be more responsible and are able to look after themselves, friends and loved ones in any situation. Their self-esteem and self-confidence increases, they develop self-empowerment and are able to protect themselves effectively in real life situations.

We believe that every child has the right to feel safe and secure at all times. Our goal is to empower children and enable them to be equipped with skills and techniques to ensure their safety and wellbeing. We provide a safe, friendly and fun environment where students can learn self-protection techniques, empowerment, confidence, focus and discipline.

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.
