Student Since: 2017
Instructor Since: 2020
Biggest Arakan Achievement:
I find it hard to see Arakan in terms of but achievements, but more as a series of small wins in a bigger journey. Some of my most memorable moments include my first seminar with Master Rob, watching one of my first student’s happiness as we worked with on their palm strike and it started to feel good, and passing my yellow belt last year. I can also look at achievements in my wider life and relate those back to Arakan and most appreciate the relationships I have developed through the club.
Interests outside of Arakan:
Gym, cycling, CrossFit.
Comments from Instructor:
I would recommend Arakan to anyone who is looking to learn self defence, improve their fitness or simply build confidence as our 1:1 lessons allow us to tailor everything we do to each unique student and their goals, regardless of their age, fitness level or previous experience. Plus, we have a great club culture and always love to welcome new students.
Kat has been teaching me for a while now, and I've only got good things to say about her. I'm impressed with how professionally and creatively she's managed the restrictions caused by COVID-19 and I've really enjoyed learning Arakan from her. I would give her the warmest of recommendations.
Kat and I have trained for over two months now, and I have been an Arakan student for almost three years. I originally started out for fitness but soon realised that Arakan was more than fitness. Kat has helped me to redefine my goals, to improve my flexibility, ability to focus and work on my technique. Whether you are a new or existing student, I highly recommend Kat as an instructor for you, it doesn't matter if your male, female or a child.
