MEMBER STORY - LADIES SEMINAR 2017

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

MEMBER STORY - SYDNEY ROAD RAGE

By Val Viscontini on June 12, 2017 in Member Stories | comments
Cities are becoming more densely populated, traffic is forever increasing, and drivers are becoming more and more frustrated. Out of all seminars I've attended through Arakan Martial Art, I've so far found road rage to be the most practical of all...





My fiancée and I were in Brisbane on a Saturday night to celebrate her 30th birthday. After a great night of drinking and frivolity we went to get a taxi back to a friend’s place, with whom we were staying. As with the Gold Coast the taxi queue it was lengthy but eventually our turn came. I let the girls go first as our friend was getting in the front to direct the driver. My fiancée got in the back behind the driver and as I opened my door a guy game from nowhere and shoved me to the ground. He then tried to get into the cab with the 2 girls pushing my fiancée across as she tried to stop him. I jumped to my feet, ran over, grounded myself and hit him with a straight palm and an elbow combination. He fell to the ground and I jumped in the taxi. I have only had approximately 2 months of Arakan teaching but I instinctively knew what to do following my Instructor’s advice. Arakan gave me the confidence, technique and power to protect both my fiancée and our friend.

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.
