Brandon began training Arakan in 2012 when he was getting bored of the gym. He was looking for something different that would incorporate fitness and conditioning and loved that Arakan not only made him fitter, faster and stronger, however he also learnt fast and effective self defence techniques too.
Brandon is always positive, upbeat, motivated and inspirational and loves being outdoors and active, a far cry from his previous career as an Accountant. This background has enabled Brandon to be an adaptable Instructor, articulate and creative, and open to teaching anyone.
Arakan has given Brandon a sense of purpose and is passionate about teaching others to defend themselves and their loved ones. He always trains hard and inspires his students to do the same. Brandon loves encouraging his students to push past what they believe they are capable of, building their persistence and resilience, which then enables them to transform their lives in the process.
Outside of Arakan when he is not training or teaching, Brandon enjoys being outdoors and active. His greatest Arakan achievement is being able to share his passion of Arakan with others and grading his Orange Belt.
