Swords, Daggers and Walking Sticks 2017

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.

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

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". READ MORE

Stuart Norris - Yellow belt grading

Almost three years ago I received a call from my instructor Corey asking if I’d like to have a complimentary lesson with him. Almost three years ago I had my mind blown away. I’d just witnessed someone moving in a way I’d never seen before and carry himself with a confidence and humbleness I only ever dreamed of having. I never realised that along the way I’d stop dreaming and start acting to become the person I always wanted to be. READ MORE
