It warms our heart to hear of stories of how people how literally transformed their lives through training Arakan Martial Art®
We often hear the excuses ‘I’m too old, too fat, too sick, not fit enough…’ the list goes on.
To tell the truth, we all have ‘stuff’ going on in our lives, however it’s how we deal with that ‘stuff’ that determines whether we live a happy and fulfilled life, or not.
Dave shares his story of how he went from being a burnt-out, ‘old, sick, depressed, stressed out 35 year old guy’ to a ‘bulletproof 45 year old man’ who is fitter, faster and stronger than he has been in his whole life!
Dave tells of how training Arakan regularly and consistently transformed his health and wealth in all aspects of his life. He became more empowered and confident in his business, at home, in his relationships and now feels bulletproof.
Almost three years ago I received a call from my instructor Corey asking if I’d like to have a complimentary lesson with him. Almost three years ago I had my mind blown away. I’d just witnessed someone moving in a way I’d never seen before and carry himself with a confidence and humbleness I only ever dreamed of having. I never realised that along the way I’d stop dreaming and start acting to become the person I always wanted to be.
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".
All experiences in life whether good or bad, shape who we are and it is up to us to use them to create the best version of ourselves.
From the minute I hit the first pad I felt my Light turn on. At the time I had no idea what it was but I felt something happen that I liked and I wanted more.
Over the years I have discovered that 'Light' and have learnt to use it to heal my darkness. And discovered a passion to guide others to discover their Light, regardless of what has happened to them.
This year I have been lucky enough to be invited to attend a special orange belt group once a month on a Saturday morning with the Chief Instructor. It's been such a privilege to be invited to this class as Master Rob really starts to break down how the techniques of the Orange Belt grade really flow together.
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson said "Evil is the force that believes its knowledge is complete." In this class everyone has been training close to 10 years if not more and I get the real sense that no one at the class feels like their knowledge is complete and especially not after Master Rob begins to unveil how all the pieces fit together, the depth of knowledge Rob has on a seemingly simple technique is unfathomable.
