Comments from Instructor: I’m excited to take you through a journey in Arakan.
Have been training 3.5 years and it's changed my life. It doesn't just teach self defence but also confidence, awareness and courage. You really have to try it to understand how much it gives. Aside from the art itself, the instructors are such inspiring people who dedicate so much time and energy to every single student. It's a real privilege to learn from so many wonderful people. My fellow students are open and accepting and just generally a great bunch of people. Arakan friends are reliable friends. Honestly haven't stopped raving about Arakan since the day I started to anyone who will listen. Highly recommend.
Dan is a humble and down-to-earth Arakan instructor. He always trains with a huge smile on his face and emitting positive vibe to his students. Training with him is an extremely pleasant experience, as he adjusts the training and accommodates his students according to their physique with a caring attitude. He is a phenomenal mentor but more importantly, a great guy overall.
COVID-19 has created an extraordinary times, where racism and bigotry had found its way to discriminate against minorities in Australia. By training with Dan for just a couple of lessons, he has taught me how to be mindful and be aware of risky situations. Moreover, it enables one to be more confident to confront racists or bullies.
I would highly recommend training with Dan.
