Jack Lace


Jack began training Arakan is 2017 when he saw an ad on facebook and decided to 'give it a go', knowing that his life need to change and he applied for a complimentary lesson. He discovered Arakan in a time where he was wandering aimlessly through life with no direction or purpose. Knowing something in his life needed to change, Jack decided to 'give Arakan a go', without expectation. He feel in love with his first lesson and the rest, as they say, is history.

Being surrounded by uplifting and inspiring mentors in the Arakan club, Jack began to feel and see a change in his life. It made him want to do better and be better. With the guidance from his Chief Instructor and his primary Instructor, Jack decided he wanted to become an Arakan Instructor and began the path to what he feels has given him a purpose in life. He wanted to help make a positive change and difference in other people's life, both mentally and physically, just as Arakan has helped him achieve in his own life.

Jack is a lighthearted guy and loves to teach his students the practical self defence aspects of Arakan along with the importance of physical conditioning. He strives to get the best from his students and enjoys watching them grow and develop in their Arakan journey. Jack is open to learning and growing and loves sharing what he's learning to his students.

Jack believes his greatest Arakan achievement to date is grading his Yellow Belt and becoming an Arakan Instructor. When he is not training, Jack enjoys painting and catching up with friends and family.
