Instructor Profile - Aida de Demko

By Arakan Martial Art on April 26, 2016 in Instructor Profiles | comments

STUDENT SINCE: November 2010

HOW YOU FOUND ARAKAN:
I won a voucher at a networking function. The rest, as they say, is history!

WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT TEACHING:
 I love sharing Arakan with ladies. Seeing how much a student develops and grows, seeing them become more confident and empowered through Arakan. That has to be one of the greatest gifts as an instructor.

MOST MEMORABLE ARAKAN MOMENT:
Difficult to narrow it down to one; attending my first Elite Guard was mind blowing! Any seminar with our Chief Instructor is incredible!

ARAKAN GOALS FOR 2016:
To get over 10 in my next beep test. Finding my bliss through training. It’s like a holiday from life; being in the moment is incredible and finding more moments like that in my training.

SUNDAY ACTIVITY:
Domestics! Haha Going for breakfast (more coffee), spending time with loved ones and keeping active.  

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WATCHING/READING:
I don’t watch TV. I’m currently reading ‘The Alchemist’ by Paolo Coelho (again) and ‘The Law of Attraction’ by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

FAVOURITE PLACE TO EAT OUT AT:
I’m a coffee addict and have a couple of favourite haunts – Flannery’s Refuel Depot in Robina is definitely a fav! 

 

 

 

 






TESTIMONIALS

Arakan Truly has given me a sense of purpose and meaning. Not only does it keeps fit, healthy, confident and safe, Arakan also gives me a huge amount of happiness. I laugh so much with my instructors and students and have some of the best relationships within the club, it takes alot of trust to allow someone to throw deadly strikes to the mark and know they will pull them up at last minute!  I see the other instructors who have wives or girlfriends train and their kids train and it's just their life, and it's keeps them happy and healthy.  This art is way more than a martial art. It can become a home if you are open to it and you can do this until you’re old and always learn something new!  Sometimes I get home at 12 at night and get up at 5am to teach or I drive down the coast 4 times a week but it's all worth it for what Arakan gives me, I'm so proud and honoured to be a part of the club and get to do this.

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. However, more adults are beginning to see the benefits of training a martial art and beginning their journey as a mature aged student. 

There is no age barrier to training Arakan Martial Art®. We have students as young as 3 years of age and as old as 83 learning Arakan Martial Art®.  READ MORE

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE
