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.




Arakan Martial Art® seminars, self-defence classes and personal training private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Northern Rivers NSW and Perth


TESTIMONIALS

I attended a work function. I left to head home to my wife and our new baby and for no reason I was jumped on from behind.  I dropped this attacker as well as two of his friends who started throwing punches at me.  Thanks to Arakan Martial Art and my Instructor for teaching me the necessary skills, and for giving me the confidence to handle these guys, and to get me home safely to my family.

Burnt-out to Bulletproof

It warms our heart to hear of stories of how people how literally transformed their lives through training Arakan Martial Art®
We often hear the excuses ‘I’m too old, too fat, too sick, not fit enough…’ the list goes on.
To tell the truth, we all have ‘stuff’ going on in our lives, however it’s how we deal with that ‘stuff’ that determines whether we live a happy and fulfilled life, or not.
Dave shares his story of how he went from being a burnt-out, ‘old, sick, depressed, stressed out 35 year old guy’ to a ‘bulletproof 45 year old man’ who is fitter, faster and stronger than he has been in his whole life!
Dave tells of how training Arakan regularly and consistently transformed his health and wealth in all aspects of his life. He became more empowered and confident in his business, at home, in his relationships and now feels bulletproof.

Martial Arts for over 40's

Martial arts’ is traditionally seen as something we enrol our children into whilst at school or we participated when we were younger. We all see the benefits of learning a martial art; improved fitness and health, balance, coordination, focus, discipline and agility, as well as learning self defence skills.
