Student Since: July 2010
Instructor Since: June 2013
Biggest Arakan Achievement: For me personally it would be the day i became an Arakan Instructor! To be able to share what you love every day is an amazing feeling!
Interests outside of Arakan: Rugby (All blacks & Crusaders), Surfing, Live bands, drawing.
Comments from Instructor: "The Challenge is to always improve, to always get better, even when you are the best. Especially when you are the best!" James Kerr, Legacy.
Nick Stowell is one of a kind! Nick has been there for me since the beginning. Not only has he helped me with my Arakan, but his teachings go so far beyond the techniques. I'm lucky to have him as my instructor.
He is the best person to be around and I can't recall a time I have ever seen him anything but happy or excited. Nick has so much to share with his students including his unending energy and great wisdom.
Seeing him train at the Orange Belt seminar, taken by our Chief Instructor each week is a huge inspiration to me. Hopefully one day, with his guidance, I too will be able to move like him.
Nick's always putting in the extra effort and has such a great connection with each of his students. Not to mention for someone who is shorter than 6 foot, he hits like a truck! Nick has harnessed his Arakan ability for amazing purposes and I am fortunate enough to hear him share with me his understanding of the martial art and life!
Thank you Nick, for the life you have helped me achieve.
