Stories from our members of how Arakan Martial Art has improved their lives
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".
 

Story from Tracey McMahon

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.

 

Orange Belt

By Tom Wilson on June 2, 2018 in Member Stories | comments

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.

 

Just on 5 years ago, my son Sam, at 11yo, started his Arakan Martial Art® training. Like anything new, learning takes time and application. He made progress quickly and this was aided very much by his initial instructor Ryan Robbie. Ryan’s patient, supportive instruction helped guide Sam through these early years working closely on developing his technique and timing.

In the following years Sam also trained with Nathan Hinga in his Level 1 class. The improvement he achieved in his technique, conditioning and feeding skills was easy to see. He was always pumped to attend his lessons and we noticed a maturity developing in him which we attributed to what he was learning and the time spent with his instructors and fellows students.






TESTIMONIALS

My Name is Lyle Wayne Davies, I am 54 years old
I started my journey in 2015.

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".

My first experience with Arakan was at a bring a friend night with the Master. My second was with Jono. I attended my complementary with Jono at Helensvale. That day I had 7 teeth removed. I didn't want this to stop me from turning up for my first lesson. 14 months on and I have lost the weight I needed to, thanks Serps/Corey. I had my annual medical (in June 2016) and have been given the all clear.

Initially all I wanted to do was lose the weight, I got a lot more.

Since joining Arakan I have 
Lost weight (not sure how much but took 65mm off my waist)
Improved flexibility, fitness, durability, humility.

I understand that Arakan is a Martial Art, but I have seen positive changes in so many family members and friends because of those precepts and principles taught; more as an extension to the self defense that Arakan offers.

My wife, Jane, has seen the results of my Arakan experience.
Jane has started her own Arakan journey. I can see the difference it has made in her already. 

I am grateful to our son for recognising a need and caring enough to share Arakan with us.
I didn't know anything about Arakan prior to my son starting his Journey. 
I am grateful to Rob for the Legacy he is creating and would be honored to share my own experience.

Martial Arts for over 40's

Martial arts’ is traditionally seen as something we enrol our children into whilst at school or we participated when we were younger. We all see the benefits of learning a martial art; improved fitness and health, balance, coordination, focus, discipline and agility, as well as learning self defence skills. However, more adults are beginning to see the benefits of training a martial art and beginning their journey as a mature aged student. 

There is no age barrier to training Arakan Martial Art®. We have students as young as 3 years of age and as old as 83 learning Arakan Martial Art®.  READ MORE
