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!

 






I originally started training in Arakan Martial Art as a form of self defence when there was a rise in attacks on women on the Gold Coast. 
 
Being a small lady (all of 45kg), I knew that I would be an easy target for uncomfortable or life threatening attacks so I decided to take action and learn a form of martial art / self defence.
 
It has not been a year yet in my Arakan journey, but looking back I have never regretted the choice I made to learn this life changing skill. An added bonus is also becoming fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been before. I am much fitter physically and mentally than I could ever be, and this is just the start (still an Arakan baby), looking at life in a more positive way.

I highly recommend all women to learn self defence. From a woman’s point of view, it is a rewarding and empowering feeling to be able to be in control and take control of an uncomfortable or life threatening situation through the skill of martial arts / self defence

When ‘life happens’, it is an opportunity to rise up and show our strength and courage. With the recent pandemic hitting our shores, it meant some changes needed to happen with training, whilst conforming with the strict government regulations and hygiene protocols.

With our wellbeing and health being highlighted and taking precedence in most people’s lives, we felt it more important than ever before to help keep our members training. Numerous studies have shown that physical activity is linked to boosting our immune system as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing.

Mental Wellbeing and Support During the Global Pandemic

As global citizens, we have all been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. This might just be to our day-to-day socio-occupational routines and training regimes but most likely than not, it has affected our sense of security and certainty about the future to some extent. For some, it can be hard not to worry what the Pandemic and its socio-economic impacts can mean for ourselves, our families, friends and communities.
