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.




Arakan Martial Art® seminars, self-defence classes and personal training private lessons are available in a large number of areas around Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Northern Rivers NSW and Perth


TESTIMONIALS

I started training Arakan Martial Art in March, 2008. After my first lesson I was hooked and within a month I was training 4 private lessons per week. After relentless phone calls from one 2nd Degree Senior Instructor Luke Pyke I started group classes with him and 2nd Degree Senior Instructor Scott Morisset. Before I started training I was of those people who thought I would know what to do if something happened, needless to say I was proven wrong very quickly. Not only has Arakan helped me learn practical self defence skills, it’s the best thing that's ever happened to me in terms of general health and well being and developing inner strength and empowerment.

Burnt-out to Bulletproof

It warms our heart to hear of stories of how people how literally transformed their lives through training Arakan Martial Art®
We often hear the excuses ‘I’m too old, too fat, too sick, not fit enough…’ the list goes on.
To tell the truth, we all have ‘stuff’ going on in our lives, however it’s how we deal with that ‘stuff’ that determines whether we live a happy and fulfilled life, or not.
Dave shares his story of how he went from being a burnt-out, ‘old, sick, depressed, stressed out 35 year old guy’ to a ‘bulletproof 45 year old man’ who is fitter, faster and stronger than he has been in his whole life!
Dave tells of how training Arakan regularly and consistently transformed his health and wealth in all aspects of his life. He became more empowered and confident in his business, at home, in his relationships and now feels bulletproof.
