Many martial arts have the potential to change someone’s life and put them on a path of self-discovery and self-improvement.

At Arakan Martial Art we have found that commitment to training each week has resulted in positive life changes that have benefited our students in all areas of their lives.

Here are 6 ways that Arakan Martial Art can change your life

Focus

Training the mind as well as the body is one of the major benefits of martial arts. By training Arakan Martial Art you will develop the ability to focus under pressure.

Regular training helps strengthen neurological pathways which help you develop the ability to focus and problem solve quickly and effectively in all areas of your life.

We have had many members remark that even after a few months of training they have discovered they better handle high pressure situations at work and in their personal lives as well as set and achieve goals they had not thought possible before training.

 

Confidence

Arakan Martial Art students generally find an increase in confidence as they become more in tune with their mind and body. Learning how to defend yourself against aggressors can result in courage and self-assurance which can help you tackle other obstacles that you may face in life. As you learn certain skills you develop a sense of empowerment which helps you gain control of situations you face in every day life.


Confident martial arts practitioners also project confidence through their natural body language which helps prevent them from being targets of bullying and other forms of aggression.

 

Fitness

Although Arakan Martial Art is suitable for people of all fitness levels, you will your fitness levels increase as you train harder and with more focus and determination. The club is full of students who have amazing weight loss and fitness improvement stories. Arakan Martial Art is a fun and exciting way to increase your fitness and reach goals you never thought possible.

Resilience
Ongoing training in Arakan Martial Art can increase your resilience to pressure, stress and fear. Regular training will help you cope with stressful situations in work and home life, raise your tolerance to stress and also provides a healthy outlet to relieve your stress.

 

Awareness and personal safety

One of the most common thing we hear from people that have been attacked in the community is that they never saw it coming.

 

By training in Arakan Martial Art you become attuned to the intentions of people around you which helps you detect and avoid potential threats before they become physical.

Although you will learn plenty of ways to defend yourself and protect your loved ones, nothing beats the ability to detect a potentially dangerous situation and avoid it all together.

I originally started training Arakan Martial Art out of curiosity back in June 2010. I was new to the Gold Coast, had always wanted to try a martial art and saw the sign for the office just around the corner from where I was living. 
Previously I had spent years at various gyms and had sought costly personal trainers which kept me reasonably fit but i decided I may be better spending the money to learn how to defend myself should the situation ever arise.
What I discovered from Arakan Martial Art was so much more. Of course it provides all the fitness and conditioning one would expect from a martial art however it is the "fight logic" that really differentiates the art. You are taught to assess your environment and use it to your advantage. This includes not only aspects such as where to position yourself in a certain situation but also how to deal with obstacles a situation may possess. There are a multitude of different locations where the art is trained that cater for everybody e.g.. nightclubs, home invasion, In your car, dark alleys, wide open areas, parks, beach etc.
Another important aspect to the art is the culture within the club. Ego is left at the gate. All of the instructors are very humble which stems from the top and is evident throughout the club. As everyone's journey is their own, you are only asked to do what you are capable of and you are only challenging yourself.
On a personal note I have found Arakan Martial Art gives me a release from the day to day pressures of work, which in turn has allowed me to become a calmer person and think more rationally. 
It never matters how bad my day has been walking into a lesson, I always walk out exhausted, full of knowledge, relaxed and with a smile on my face.
