Arakan Martial Art® hosts real-world seminars that existing students of private lessons or group classes are invited to attend. These seminars supplement your child’s normal training and are specifically designed to mimic ‘real life’ situations. This experiential type training is contained in a controlled environment, and enables your child to practice their skills and techniques to ingrain a ‘response to stimulus’ that they may one day be exposed to.

Real-World Training

Arakan Martial Art® private lessons and group classes teach your child proper techniques as well as build their interpersonal and social skills. These seminars build on your child’s existing skill set, by adapting them to real-life situations and environments. This style of training allows your child to become dynamic, adaptable and capable of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of themselves and others.

During these seminars your child will learn to protect themselves against potential grabs, punches, kicks, and tackles, in an experiential way. Your child’s awareness will ultimately become more heightened, and their ability to identify a potential situation will increase. Scenario based training also increases your child’s threshold and prepares them emotionally and mentally should a situation occur in real life.

Arakan Martial Art® hosts numerous seminars for their existing junior students that cater to various ‘potential situations’.

Anti-Abduction Seminar

Our Anti-Abduction seminar is offered to students aged 5 to 12 years, and 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, this will give them a fighting chance. They get the opportunity to practice their skills and techniques on instructors of various sizes and shapes and in different surroundings, such as a playground or car park, to mimic a potential ‘real life’ situation.

Junior Training Days

Junior Training Days hosted in the past have focused 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 and tackles, in a safe and controlled environment. This type of training raises your child’s threshold, boosts their confidence and ingrains their response to stimulus.

Teen Night Club Seminar

Our Teen Night Club Seminar is designed for teenagers approaching 18 years of age who are potentially getting ready to ‘hit the party scene’ or stay out late. This seminar is held in a real night club that we reserve solely for this seminar. The atmosphere, loud music and lights ensure the environment is realistic, allowing us to role play real-life scenarios that 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 quarter skill sets, multiple attackers and emotionally intense nightclub situations. They will learn how to defuse potentially threatening situations, deal with drunk or disruptive patrons, whilst also increasing their situational awareness.

The Many Benefits Of Junior Martial Art Seminars

All of the junior seminars are designed to keep your child safe when they venture out into the world without you.

Arakan Martial Art® seminars teach your child to be responsible, and more capable of looking after themselves, their friends and loved ones in any situation. Their self-esteem and confidence will increase, and they will feel empowered and able to protect themselves effectively in real-life situations.

At Arakan we believe every child has the right to feel safe and secure at all times. Our goal is to empower children with the skills and techniques they need 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® seminars are available exclusively to students undertaking private lessons or junior group classes. They are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Perth.
