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.

TESTIMONIALS

A very good friend of mine held a party for his 17 year old son and my wife and I offered to help out with the general party stuff. All was well up until 9:45. A group of uninvited teenagers (party crashers) approached the front gate and despite of being told several times that the party was closed and that they would not be let in, the group got louder and started to climb on neighbouring fences. 
 
I started to get surrounded by 5 or 6 of them holding open cans and bottles yelling abuse, my adrenalin started rising and I started to pick out my targets (just in case). Then it happened, a push…it was immediately answered by a back fist (guy in front of me), slight turn to the left and followed by a straight palm (guy to my left), it connected quite well and caused a bit of a domino effect. The rest of the group cleared out quickly and started to throw cans and bottles at us; luckily no one was hurt. Eventually the police arrived and scanned the area for those who started this mess.

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE
