    Ha im glad you can't find any infomation on it. I don't want the world to know what cards i have been delt. closing comments. arakan works. it is effective. it gives you core confidence. and i will not accept anymore comments until someone has come down for that free lesson and proven me wrong. thats it. it is as simple as that.

    Oh what you have a magic stop posting button?

    These aren't the cards you have been dealt. You bought these cards. Are you telling me there are no other schools in your area?

    Many people fall for the hype. It is just silly to do in the information age. You have fallen for what many people will do, the exotic I want to do something no one else does.

    Mate, no disrespect, but maybe you could start by posting the promotional video(s) when you can.

    If that doesn't satisfy everyone, then someone will probably come to a session and check it out.

    And would you agree or disagree with the commentary I made about my 2nd hand observations of Arakan as a style? the guy I knew had trained for probably around as long as you have.

    You are either trolling - Bullshido sees this same exact stuff all the time - or hopelessly naive to the point of courting danger.

    If A, then **** OFF. If B, then GOOD LUCK.

    Deadmeat, yeh well im at work atm so thats no possible right now. i'll have to see if i can tomorrow.
    I agree. Even when i show my mates about it, it is difficult to get the technique across because im not a qualified instructor. I also agree that at first some of the movements (especially a left handed palm strike) IS very difficult. just like throwing a ball with your left hand (or right, if you are left handed.) but i now find it very easy and comfortable while generating huge amount of power.

    If it is not called Arakan in Myanmar (Burma) then please ask someone who is knowledgeable what it is called in Myanmar. There is perhaps other documentation available under a different name. This would then be a source for those of us here that are skeptical to refer to.

    Thnx

    Im not using this as proof i just found this interesting:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thaing_%28burmese%29

    it may or may not be arakan, may shed some light onto why there is no documentation.

    NOTE: i do not think this is the be and end all, but it certianly does support my claims.

    Hi I just googled Arakan. The only reference I can find to an MA is from the school you mention (sorry if I missed a post):

    http://www.arakan.com.au/home.php

    I like the history stuff, odd that they can trace it back to exactly 2666 BC. Also that they can trace a direct lineage to the protectors of the kings of Arakan, who only were allowed into the elite guards by birthright. This would seem to indicate that a lineage diagram could be drawn. Is there one?
