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! 

 

 

 

 




Chris Walsh – Yellow Belt Grading Story

I started Arakan just interested in the discipline of keeping fit and learning this fantastic skill at the same time. This appealed to my rational mind and it made sense that this could actually be applied in a real life situation. 

I have been training for over 5 years and like some students starting out I had to find a balance with regularity of training with cost and other commitments. What I didn’t expect was that as I trained but I became more empowered, decisive and a leader in my business.  READ MORE

Ensure Your Child’s Safety

Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about empowering children! On the 12th May 2018, Arakan Martial Art® held a seminar geared towards teaching children self protection skills and techniques, to ensure their safety and wellbeing. 

Arakan Martial Art® provides a safe, friendly and fun environment where children learn experientially, how to become more aware of danger and respond with efficient and effective self-protection techniques. Feedback from both parents and children has been extremely positive. 

As parents, it is probably one of our greatest fears that our child disappears. Our hearts skip a beat, a lump forms in our throat, dread creeps in; we feel panic stricken. 
If you’re lucky, your child has just simply been blocked from view temporarily by an object or popped over to a friend’s house without telling you. However, there is always the chance that it may be something more sinister; our worst nightmare. READ MORE
