MEMBER STORY - LADIES SEMINAR 2017

By Samantha Arceo on June 12, 2017 in Member Stories | comments

This is my second year attending the ladies seminar. In the 10 weeks, Rob teaches us techniques and about body mechanics to help us push through the initial reaction of panic and fight through the exhaustion and discomfort so you can find a way to get home safely. When I started two years ago, I wouldn't have guessed that I would be most grateful for the exposure to stimulus like grabs, hair pulling or being pinned to the ground so that if it ever were to happen outside of training, it is not the first time I've felt it. The instructors do such an amazing job putting the pressure on to simulate these situations for us and put their bodies on the line week after week to allow us to learn in an environment that is safe, yet challenging.

Looking back and comparing my experience this year with last, I was surprised in how much training has changed the way I feel and react to being in some very uncomfortable situations. I've noticed a change in the threshold of what triggers panic, fear or anxiety in me and I've found I'm quicker to push past this and find a solution. It has proved to me that through repetition and time, you can train your body and mind to react differently.

Every week I am inspired by all the amazing ladies in Arakan Martial Art and I can't wait for next year!





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
