Student Testimonials

When I started Arakan it was because of martial arts and exercise. What I didn’t expect was somebody completely dedicated to my success. Aida has pushed me when needed, she has encouraged and is there supporting both myself and her other female students every Saturday at ladies group. A fierce warrior herself she is an inspiration and someone that any woman, young or old, can use as a role model. No matter your age or health Aida wants you to, and inspires you to live your life in power.
As I have said to many of my friends, being an Arakan student is about the sport and so much more. Community, love, empowerment.

Arakan Martial Art was my first step to getting healthier. It has helped me to look after my health and wellbeing more and also to be more calm.
It has given me more self confidence along with the ability to protect myself. 
Aida is an amazing Instructor. She is very patient with me, kind and compassionate and still pushes me to be the very best I can be. She is very supportive and makes me believe in myself and what I can do. I’ve very grateful to have Aida as my Instructor.

I have been training with Arakan instructors for almost a year now. Starting as an overweight, out of shape person, at the age of 49, trained weekly and sometimes 2-3 times/week and feeling so much better now. Gained a ton of confidence, I'm in better shape then when I was younger. A big thank you to Daniel Lin who's been guiding my steps throughout the year. He's become my mentor, encouraging and pushing me when I needed it the most!
To anyone who's an enthusiast of Martial Arts: give Arakan a try, it will change your life!

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.”
