TRAINING DAY MEMBER STORY - Sydney Student – Chris Dee, Instructor – Scott Sperring

Driving out into the wilderness getting closer to Camp Bornhoffern and getting further and further away from the Gold Coast it dawned on me, what would the day bring, what should I expect, will I cope….

The site was a sprawl of Arakan uniforms and friendly faces all offering introductions and stoked we had made the trip up from Sydney. I was still nervous watching people arrive with different blunt objects, but excitement grew knowing I would be training with the real thing.

Rob shortly grouped us all together for roll call, a good opener to see where each of the team had come from and who was who. The day was going to be laid out in Chapters, 1-5 then something “special” to finish the day.

Having Rob demonstrate and drive each of the chapters was something I have never witnessed, it was like watching a magician perform an act, effortless, flawless and you just wanted to get a close as possible to watch every movement. Even those with years of training were left with open mouths, I knew I was getting a very unique opportunity to train in this environment being surrounded by so much experience and talent.

The chapters we worked through during the course of the day gave real life scenarios to a number of different situations and how it would best be dealt with. The instructors were all outstanding and a credit to them to be able to attend to so many students whilst adapting themselves based on the student they were presented with.

Before I knew it we had worked our way through all the chapters and the instructors disappeared to get ready for the final part of the day. The camp now covered in complete darkness it definitely heightened the senses and increased the adrenaline. The challenge of environment and varying situations made you problem solve, for me this was a complete new concept and one I learnt from especially (thanks Jason).

The whole experience from start to finish has altered my outlook on Arakan, allowing me to see the bigger picture means I can continue to add small pieces of the puzzle and not get lost or swayed along the way. Sometimes you need this, you need to see the big picture to realise what you are building.



When I started Arakan, I was a stressed out, overweight businessman who was very unhealthy and was close to going on medication for high cholesterol. After 3 months of training I lost weight, was much fitter and doctors informed me I no longer needed to go on medication.
I have been training for over 3 years now and have literally gotten my life back. I am now fit, healthy and strong both mentally and physically. I feel 15 years younger and have found that I no longer feel stressed about anything in life. 
My relationships, work and all other aspects of my life have become much richer and successful and this is due to the unique and complete way Arakan instructors help you to grow stronger in mind and body. 
The instructors are personal, caring and extremely dedicated to helping you unlock your true potential.

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...
