Advanced Weapons Seminars



I always look forward to the weapon seminars throughout the year especially the swords, daggers and walking sticks. It never ceases to amaze me how deep this art is. These seminars really give just a snapshot of the scope of Arakan, it's insanely technical without a weapon in hand let alone trying to use one. It was always a long term goal of mine to get to witness some of these techniques but now it's about the experience. the whole room has an entirely different energy to any other class when Rob is demonstrating with a really sharp dagger with the utmost mastery and precision stopping the blade literally millimetres from main arteries with so much speed and confidence, you can feel everyone in the rooms heart skip a beat.

It doesn't matter what weapon is in hand the level of focus and concentration needed to wield the weapon without injuring your training partner brings a whole other level of discipline and control. Which is why it's still such a privilege to get invited to this seminar everyone has to be graded and most people in the room have been training well over 5 years. Anyone lucky enough to attend would agree we are all so fortunate to get a glimpse of such high level arakan techniques we may never get to be truly taught in our private lesson. Definitely an experience I hope everyone who trains can have, for me this is for filling my childhood dream of wielding a sword and leaving me with the most amazing memories.

I have been training with Corey now for over 4 years and initially i started training with him to get some basic fitness. I had my first complimentary lesson with Corey and was show the backfist and how to generate more power to that blow with some "technique". It was amazing to realise the difference in the power of the blow. Corey has since trained me every week since that time and (has patiently) explained everything concisely (many times) to assist my growth with Arakan Martial Art. It was apparent from the outset that Corey was passionate and considerate but his understanding of Arakan enabled him to teach the art at a very understandable level right through to being enabled to grade my first belt.
I now train with Corey to gain greater understanding of the next belt requirements but due to the exposure to Coreys passion and understanding of Arakan, is now not just about grading but more about a journey of learning that is continuous. The health benefits have been great for me personally and I cannot thank Corey enough for what he has helped me to achieve. I highly recommend him as an Arakan Instructor and have entrusted him to start training with my 14 year old son. Again, I see Corey gently working away with him and encouraging him. The benefits of having some knowledge, of what he is being Instructed, only brings us closer and gives us a better bond. Exponentially, my eldest son trains and my youngest daughter has trained for 4 years (this month, Jan 2020) as well, so it really has become a family affair.
Thanks for everything Corey

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.
