Welcome to 2018!

By Arakan Martial Art on January 3, 2018 in Health and Fitness | comments
I trust all is great and that you have had a great start to 2018. It’s so amazing to see so many Arakan Warriors training hard, thanks for having such a great attitude towards training.
This year marks 25 years of Arakan Martial Art in Australia, so I would like to extend very special congratulations to members who have been part of our family for ten years or longer. I believe that most of the battle is in just turning up, consistently, every week and just doing the ‘work’.
 
It really warms my heart to see so many beautiful, smiling faces of the Arakan junior students. Speaking on behalf of all of the Arakan Instructors, it is indeed a pleasure to be given the privilege of teaching your kids. Thanks for your trust, support, and patience with us. One of my greatest joys in life is to be part of a child’s growth towards greater levels of empowerment, so thank you again for the opportunity.

For a child, each stage of life is a fast transitional period. It’s great to see that Arakan plays such a big part in the lives of our youngest students from the age of three to our young adult students, up to nineteen years old.

One of the aspects of coaching that is most amazing to me is that when a child learns to become a good student of life, I.e. he/she learns how to watch and listen attentively, he/she learns how to focus intently and learns to increase his/her situational awareness, everything in this student’s life improves dramatically, including academically, socially and in other sporting areas.
 

Many students begin their journey thinking that after some time and commitment to training, all of their doubts will be extinguished, that they would gain greater levels of confidence and they would feel totally indestructible.

The reality is that along their journey, students may become even more doubtful and less confident than when they began their journey. Although this state is temporary and transitional, the feelings of doubt often lead to the student becoming disillusioned and stopping their journey all together.

 

Making an investment in private martial arts lessons for your child has the potential to dramatically change your child’s life forever.  Many parents have discovered the significant advantage of enrolling their children in private lessons with Arakan Martial Art instead of putting them into a traditional group class with another martial arts club.

Studies have shown that children benefit significantly from one on one, personalized training in any area of life. As Arakan is uniquely taught to improve both the mind and the body, your child can become stronger both mentally and physically through private lessons.

 



Chris Walsh – Yellow Belt Grading Story

I started Arakan just interested in the discipline of keeping fit and learning this fantastic skill at the same time. This appealed to my rational mind and it made sense that this could actually be applied in a real life situation. 

I have been training for over 5 years and like some students starting out I had to find a balance with regularity of training with cost and other commitments. What I didn’t expect was that as I trained but I became more empowered, decisive and a leader in my business.  READ MORE

Ensure Your Child’s Safety

Arakan Martial Art® is passionate about empowering children! On the 12th May 2018, Arakan Martial Art® held a seminar geared towards teaching children self protection skills and techniques, to ensure their safety and wellbeing. 

Arakan Martial Art® provides a safe, friendly and fun environment where children learn experientially, how to become more aware of danger and respond with efficient and effective self-protection techniques. Feedback from both parents and children has been extremely positive. 

As parents, it is probably one of our greatest fears that our child disappears. Our hearts skip a beat, a lump forms in our throat, dread creeps in; we feel panic stricken. 
If you’re lucky, your child has just simply been blocked from view temporarily by an object or popped over to a friend’s house without telling you. However, there is always the chance that it may be something more sinister; our worst nightmare. READ MORE
