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!
