Student Testimonials

"The confidence Arakan has given my 10 yr old boy has blown my mind. His mentor, Pene, is patient, has built a great rapport in a short amount of time, is understanding, caring and it’s a pleasure to watch my sons self confidence grow each week.

My son also has Aspergers, ADHD and extreme anxiety, so Pene, in my opinion is also learning and I watch as he implements strategies specific for my son.

Finding Arakan and Pene has been a blessing to us, thank you Arakan and thank you Pene"

Christine Hayward

I started training in Arakan Martial Art initially for fitness and for fun (as I was becoming quite bored with the gym) but this has expanded beyond my wildest dreams. I feel very confident when I am by myself as the self defence training that Arakan provides is easy to learn, very practical and very realistic.

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.
