Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

Tap here for a Complimentary Private Lesson!

My Name is Lyle Wayne Davies, I am 54 years old

I started my journey in 2015.

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you".

My first experience with Arakan was at a bring a friend night with the Master. My second was with Jono. I attended my complementary with Jono at Helensvale. That day I had 7 teeth removed. I didn't want this to stop me from turning up for my first lesson. 14 months on and I have lost the weight I needed to, thanks Serps/Corey. I had my annual medical (in June 2016) and have been given the all clear.

Initially all I wanted to do was lose the weight, I got a lot more.

Since joining Arakan I have lost weight (not sure how much but took 65mm off my waist), Improved flexibility, fitness, durability, humility.

I understand that Arakan is a Martial Art, but I have seen positive changes in so many family members and friends because of those precepts and principles taught; more as an extension to the self defense that Arakan offers.

My wife, Jane, has seen the results of my Arakan experience. Jane has started her own Arakan journey. I can see the difference it has made in her already.

I am grateful to our son for recognising a need and caring enough to share Arakan with us.
I didn't know anything about Arakan prior to my son starting his Journey.
I am grateful to Rob for the Legacy he is creating and would be honored to share my own experience.







I started training Arakan approximately 6 years ago, only really because my son had just started training and I thought it would be good to have something in common, as well as a fun way to keep fit.  I wasn’t particularly concerned about self-defense because I had never really felt the need for it, and in the beginning I was probably more concerned about improving my fitness-test results than learning how to protect myself.
However it wasn’t too long after this that our house was broken into one night, whilst my family and I were all asleep in our bedrooms. It wasn’t until the morning that we realized what had happened, and that all of us had slept through the whole thing.  Thankfully there was no harm done and only a bit of money stolen, but the next morning I can remember thinking how lucky I was that I slept through and didn’t wake up and have to confront the burglar - because I wouldn’t have had a clue what to do or how to handle myself, let alone protect my family…..and that’s when my attitude towards training changed.
Now, after many years of private and group lessons, some advanced weapons training, a few home invasion seminars and 3 other family members that train Arakan – look out if you ever try to break into our house!

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.

As global citizens, we have all been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

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. READ MORE
