Comments from Instructor: Arakan Martial Art has changed my life. From being bullied as a child and having being attacked as an adult; I now know how to avoid confronting situations but also take care of myself if necessary. Arakan is so much more than self-defence, it also teaches focus and confidence, and has also helped me lose over 15kgs.
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 and Ben Ho, especially Daniel 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! Lawrence Cocerhan
Daniel is an excellent instructor and it has been a pleasure to train with him for the last 4 years. He has been a great mentor, pushing me to always do my best and challenge my self-imposed limiting beliefs while also respecting where my actual limitations lie and going out of his way to accommodate for that. He has made training both an enjoyable and rewarding part of my life and I look forward to continuing my journey with him for many years to come. Dylan Gorman
