Arakan and the Physical Body


Blog



Arakan Martial Art is a very unique art that enables you to use your body to its best advantage. You will learn to connect with and move your body in very dynamic ways, in which you never thought possible. Several moving parts will come together as you begin to coordinate left and right, top to bottom, forwards and backwards; continuous movements from one to the other, becoming incredibly adaptable. These movements also works the body bilaterally which uses both brain hemispheres, potentially triggering neural plasticity. Your body and mind will become more adaptable, flexible and agile with training.

Our movements begin to benefit your body as you develop a greater understanding of body weight, momentum, body mechanics and moving with the path of least resistance. You will learn to coordinate your body using circular movements and flow and produce your movements with precision, speed and power. As you develop a greater control over your body, you become physically fitter, stronger and more agile. Your body, mind and heart will begin to strengthen and become more resilient and gain greater strength, flexibility, mobility, balance and coordination through your training.

If you have suffered an old sporting or work injury, or your movements are limited and are no longer able to enjoy your sporting endeavours, we would highly recommend giving Arakan a go. You will quickly notice your fitness increasing steadily; improving your overall health and well-being.

We believe that training Arakan Martial Art helps provide more balance in our life and when you are fully immersed in your training you will begin to see amazing results and attract more positive situations and outcomes in your life.





Initially starting Arakan for fitness and self defence for myself and my wife, I didn't fully appreciate how practical it could be. Then after a few years the art starts to open up and you see where you may be in a few more years and enticing glimpses of the years after that.  
Being taught by amazingly dedicated instructors amongst a diverse range of willing students without ego is a great and humbling experience.

Being in the Moment
Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
