Ladies Only Member Story - Elly Killiman

I have been training Arakan Martial Art for over two years now, and this is the second Ladies seminar I have attended. The experiences I have had during this particular seminar have been absolutely mind blowing. Not only do we learn how to physically defend ourselves, but we also gain the "mental toughness" to recognise and handle threatening situations. We learn countless techniques to get out of dangerous situations, and also have the opportunity to practise and apply these techniques in a simulated and controlled environment. The care and passion the instructors show each and every week is amazing, putting their bodies on the line so we are able to apply self-defence techniques in real life scenarios.

The greatest thing I love about Arakan is its adaptability and although we learn and practice set skills, we also learn how to adapt and apply them. This seminar has provided me with so much knowledge and awareness of potential threats, and week in week out leaves me speechless with how applicable and successful these techniques are.

I am so grateful for Rob and all of the instructors there who take so much time and care to teach us and make sure we are okay, but at the same time pushing us to our absolute limits. I am so thankful for the instructors for pushing me beyond my comfort zone as beyond this point is where I learn the most. My threshold has been raised much higher, allowing me to handle some intense situations with a clear mind without becoming overwhelmed. Doing this ladies seminar has accelerated my growth in learning this art, as well as my focus and determination to come out much stronger than I was going in. I can't thank Master Rob, Ben Ho and the whole Arakan Martial Art team enough for everything they have done and getting me to where I am today! Thank you!

 






Arakan has helped Talia immensely.

It has given her discipline, greater confidence, focus and self-esteem. She now has greater awareness of bullies at her school and is assertive when required.

It has been the best activity that I have invested in for my child.

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...
