Comments from Instructor:
Finding Arakan was amazing, it’s challenging in all areas and not just physically. Being a non-competition style, my opponent became myself & training took on a different purpose. The discipline & life lessons that I've learnt, have helped me in every area of my life.

Student Testimonials

My primary reason for learning self defence was of course to learn how to protect myself. However, once I started I realised it was about so much more than that. Not only do I have the skills to protect myself physically, it has also changed my mindset helping me to become more confident, aware and alert which has enabled me to grow as a person.

When ‘life happens’, it is an opportunity to rise up and show our strength and courage. With the recent pandemic hitting our shores, it meant some changes needed to happen with training, whilst conforming with the strict government regulations and hygiene protocols.

With our wellbeing and health being highlighted and taking precedence in most people’s lives, we felt it more important than ever before to help keep our members training. Numerous studies have shown that physical activity is linked to boosting our immune system as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing.



Mental Wellbeing and Support During the Global Pandemic

As global citizens, we have all been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. This might just be to our day-to-day socio-occupational routines and training regimes but most likely than not, it has affected our sense of security and certainty about the future to some extent. For some, it can be hard not to worry what the Pandemic and its socio-economic impacts can mean for ourselves, our families, friends and communities.
