Xavier, affectionately known as X, began training Arakan over 2 decades ago in 2000. He was inspired by the ‘street self defence’ style of Arakan, how adaptable it is and that he could defend himself and loved ones.
Arakan has helped transform X’s life for the better and he is a passionate Instructor and loves teaching his students to learn how to protect themselves in potential ‘real life’ situations. X’s knowledge and experience enables him to teach everyone and anyone, of any age. He is very patient and encouraging as he helps his students overcome their obstacles, to feel better about themselves and become more confident and empowered.
X is grateful to have made a career from teaching something he is so passionate about. Outside of Arakan, X enjoys spending time with his family, playing basketball, and all things cars.
