Aida Jasmine - Arakan Martial Art Instructor

Aida Jasmine

Senior Instructor

Aida stumbled across Arakan late 2010 and immediately feel in love and knew from her very first private lesson that she wanted to teach this amazing art to other women, so that they too could feel their own sense of power.

Aida is the epitome of a Spiritual Warrior. She is here for the spiritual journey that training martial arts has to offer, the deep self reflection, empowerment and inner strength that comes from training and also loves that women can learn practical and effective self defence too!

Arakan is more than just kicking and striking for Aida, she is here for the deep transformational journey. As an Instructor, Aida is very caring and compassionate, with technical prowess and loves teaching other woman that size doesn't matter, by utilising body weight and momentum, correct technique and skills sets, along with strength and conditioning, how you can gain power to safely and effectively protect yourself against a bigger and stronger opponent. She also brings a lot of love and light into her lessons and enjoys a laugh, whilst teaching fast and effective self protection techniques.

Aida thrives on empowering her students to feel more confident in themselves and loves witnessing them break through perceived limitations and push beyond blocks, challenges and limiting beliefs. She loves sharing her knowledge and inspiring others to become the greatest version of themselves, that the lessons gained through training, and being more confident and empowered is part of that growth and development and correlate to life.

Aida's greatest Arakan achievements to date is being the first female to grade her Orange Belt and sharing this amazing art with other women. Her other passions include personal and spiritual development and empowering women on all levels.

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.

Since starting in late 2009, Arakan Martial Art has truly inspired me on a day to day basis. It has made me feel incredibly empowered and confident. 
I now wholeheartedly believe in myself and my abilities, be it physical or mental! Having dealt with some nasty bullying issues from the past, this is what pushed me to train harder and faster, never wanting to become the victim again. 
Today I am loud and proud thanks to Arakan and the amazing people involved!

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.”
