OCCUPATION: Acting Lecturer (Film and Theatre)
WEEKLY TRAINING CONSISTS OF: 1 private lesson, 1 group training, 1 shared private and the Invite class with Rob
WHY YOU STARTED TRAINING: I started training because I wanted to be able to keep fit, learn how to fight and also to be able to move for film. I also wanted to work on myself rather than just my body, and I believe martial arts does that.
WHY YOU ARE STILL TRAINING:: I love the journey. I enjoy training hard so that if a dangerous situation comes up, I can deal with it in a decent manner, and not be frightened
MOST MEMORABLE ARAKAN MOMENT::Getting punched in the face by a "club idiot" (Trainer) in the Sin City Nightclub seminar. It make me realise you must keep going and finish the fight or else someone else will.
ARAKAN GOALS: I am looking forward to grading first up. But overall, I would love to be able to have a greater understanding of the art and the connection to my body. I know only years of training will suffice to make an impact of achieving this goal.
GENERAL COMMENTS: I thoroughly enjoy the training, even the conditioning, haha. Being around like minded people with similar goals makes it interesting and exciting. I really enjoy Arakan! Thanks to all the trainers that have help me in one way or another.
