I thought men’s fitness was simply cardio and strength, but in my late 30’s I realised the mind was equally important. My body was semi-fit but my mind was unchallenged thus making my entire body fatigued. Looking for fitness, with a purpose, I was introduced to a Burmese martial arts called Arakan. This practical and adaptable martial arts focuses on self-defence and promotes fitness and health. Three years on, my body and mind are physically and mentally stronger. For me, the money spent on Arakan has been an investment in my health. Arakan’s mantra is Power/Focus/Confidence. Instructors taught me Power comes within, Focus comes from a strong mind and commitment, and Confidence comes from overcoming struggle because only then do we feel success. Men’s health definitely requires a physical presence but more importantly a strong mind. Everything stems from our mind, whether it be our words, actions, reactions or beliefs. I will always be grateful for the culture AMA promotes with people’s health

Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”
