Arakan Martial Art Blog for August 2016


Blog



Many students begin their journey thinking that after some time and commitment to training, all of their doubts will be extinguished, that they would gain greater levels of confidence and they would feel totally indestructible.

The reality is that along their journey, students may become even more doubtful and less confident than when they began their journey. Although this state is temporary and transitional, the feelings of doubt often lead to the student becoming disillusioned and stopping their journey all together.

 

Making an investment in private martial arts lessons for your child has the potential to dramatically change your child’s life forever.  Many parents have discovered the significant advantage of enrolling their children in private lessons with Arakan Martial Art instead of putting them into a traditional group class with another martial arts club.

Studies have shown that children benefit significantly from one on one, personalized training in any area of life. As Arakan is uniquely taught to improve both the mind and the body, your child can become stronger both mentally and physically through private lessons.

 


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.

Being in the Moment
Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
