Ladies Only Member Story - Elly Killiman


Blog



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!

 



8 Years ago I started my journey with Arakan Martial Arts. I gave up drugs drinking and smoking and used the money I saved to invest in private and group lessons for myself and my 12 year old son.
I shopped the specials and hunted the reduced price items at Woolworths so I could raise more money for training.
What triggered me to contact Arakan Martial Arts was because my son was being bullied at school and I wanted to gain more growth strength and confidence after abusing my mind and body for so many years.
I now have a 5 year old son who has just commenced training. He absolutely loves it and has just started school and I am so confident that he is going to have the skills and a head start over all the other children.
I have invested thousands of dollars in training over the years but it’s not even possible to see or understand what it has provided to me and my family. I have got my money back 10 fold if you were to try to put a price on it.
Our chief instructor Robert Kyaw has successfully passed down his skills, knowledge and wisdom to each instructor and in turn, down again to each student.
He has branched out, north, south, west and east of Brisbane and Gold Coast and also successfully set up in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth maintaining the same high quality product and service.
If you want to improve your life and change it for the better for ever than I absolutely recommend you get in touch today!
Power Focus and confidence is what they are offering and power focus and confidence is what you will receive.
The last thing I would like to say is that this club becomes your family. They stick by you thick and thin and are compassionate and extremely understanding and encouraging.
They have helped and guided me through so many challenges physically and mentally.

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...
