Aida de Demko
Name: Aida de Demko
Student Since: November 2010
Instructor Since: Feb 2015
Biggest Arakan Achievement: Achieving my Yellow Belt Grading and becoming an Arakan Instructor. Finding my inner peace through training. When you are completely in the moment, not thinking about anything else, being truly present during training, that’s bliss.
Interests outside of Arakan:
Personal development, self awareness, spirituality and empowering women on all levels.
Comments from Instructor: I am so blessed to have Arakan in my life. I’m passionate about empowering other women through this amazing art.
My daughter and I were introduced to Arakan Martial Art in 2018. In this short space of time it has had a magical impact on our world. I never thought I’d be a ‘martial art’ person, but so glad that we are now in this powerful positive community.
There has only been a couple of times in my life where I’ve interacted with men and women who are completely focused on honouring and empowering each other. Fitness, empowerment, and self-defence all rolled into one! The benefits roll out into your entire life. I am already using the sense of inner strength and focus in my business. And, I'm sharing with my clients the positive ripples that occur when groups of people come together to bring out the best in each other. This group of people (students and instructors alike) have confirmed to me that leaders come in all shapes and sizes and they aren't born they are made.
I have a diminished lung capacity due to a long-term illiness and am coming off a very low fitness capability, and yet everyone at Arakan - students and instructors alike - make me feel like I’m a superstar.
If you want to step in to your personal power - physically, mentally and emotionally - try one of the complimentary lessons, you'll be glad you did.
My instructor is Aida and she is a great role model for how Arakan can turn your life into something more than you anticipated.
