Master Rob
This is a short note to let you know that over the last 14 to 15 years that I have trained with Arakan I have never for one moment doubted that it is the right martial art for me.

Your skill and confidence in your art can clearly be seen in your instructors, and importantly your calmness and empathy also shines through both your instructors and students.
As a law enforcement professional I am proud to be part of the Arakan family and I believe the skills I have learned over the years have enabled me to tackle every situation with a calm and confident attitude.
