"I enrolled my daughter Ava into Arakan a few months after the sudden death of her father who passed away in a car accident in 2006. I chose sport as a therapeutic medium for Ava to release her grief and Arakan was a powerful healing tool for her in the first year following her father’s death.  Five years on she misses him naturally but Arakan has been a fantastic outlet for her in many ways & has helped her move forward into a brave, new & positive future - my little Urban Warrior"
