Urban Warrior Nightclub Sydney

By Student Nick Jones on July 9, 2016 in Member Stories & Self Defence | comments

I attended the Arakan Sydney Night Club Seminar in June. 

In one word for the experience, wow, unbelievable. That’s two words! 

The most amazing thing about the nightclub seminar was the level of energy - with all of us students as well as the instructors from the beginning to the end, it just multiplied exponentially. 

It was overseen by Master Rob, who amazes me every time I have had the pleasure of doing a seminar, group lesson or end of year celebration with him. His ability to read the level of where all the students attending is extraordinarily. Being able to push us, whilst maintaining a sense of control in amongst the madness, is outstanding.

I think I can speak for everyone on how appreciative I was of so many instructors coming interstate to attend the seminar. They arrived in all shapes and sizes, with big Tom and Anthony as security and the ladies; it provided such a great variety of feeding. A lot of whom we have never met before, however one of the wonderful things about Arakan is that we all seem to connect very easily.  I think that there are a lot of like-minded individuals that both teach, as well as students like myself. We were pushed, we were sweating, the skills were learnt in such an intense environment and like I said, probably the most amazing thing for me was the level of intensity from the beginning to the end.

From the beginning we felt like we were walking in to an actual nightclub. The instructors were doing security at the top of the stairs, behaving like rowdy patrons on the way up the stairs. Someone was talking jackets and putting them in the cloakroom when we rocked in, because it was hammering down with rain in Sydney that Saturday morning. 

The skills were amazing, some of which we haven’t used before. I’ve got to say, I was very intimidated by Nathan, Richy, the usual suspects. Initially they were putting it on us just a bit at the start of the seminar, however towards the end I certainly felt so much more confident to deal with the situation that was presented in the best way possible based on what Master Rob had taught us along the way, on how to deal with these situations. 

To be able to work within that grey area so often, where an instructor was bailing you up and staunching you, whether or not to go, so it was great to actually be able to work in that grey area and try and figure out the best thing to do.

I would encourage any student at any level to attend nightclub seminar. I have only been doing Arakan for a couple years myself now, however whether I had just started or I envisage 10 years down the track, I will be chomping at the bit to do another Arakan nightclub seminar. 

Big thanks to all the instructors that made it, big thanks to all of the students and last but not least Master Rob for providing such an incredible experience. I would actually call that one a bucket list and I’ve ticked it off but I want to do it again, so thank you!

 





I am a student in Sydney. Aaron Moses is my instructor. Being a business owner with employees myself, it is always good to hear when your clients are happy with the service being provided. I have to say I started Arakan in feb 2018 only doing one day a week. Now just five months later I training 3hrs a week. I would have to admit a lot is due to Aaron’s motivation. 

When I started in feb I was still smoking and doing almost no exercise. With Aaron’s always positive attitude and motivation I haven’t had a smoke for 4mths. I also now am running and doing regular exercise. I am fitter than I was in my 20’s or 30’s. 

I look forward to every lesson and just feed off Aaron’s can do attitude. 

I am not a person that usually does this and didn’t want to make a big deal about it. But I really feel that management there and especially Rob needs to know how good of a job Aaron is doing in Sydney. 

My life has improved so much since starting Arakan training.

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.
