Member Story

Recreation Development Officer Jake, shares a story of one of his members:

Ryan joined the Recreation Access Program after a few tough years in his life, which involved some severe bullying and living independently for the first time in his life. Ryan was a very polite, well-spoken and a considerate young man however he wanted to find a way of increasing his confidence.

Ryan was extremely proactive during the research phase of his program and presented me with some ideas he had of his own, one of which was for a group called Krav-Maga in Subiaco. Krav-Maga is a form of self-defence created by the Israeli defence force and involves self-defence moves designed to help people avoid realistic dangers.

Ryan and I went along to one class of Krav-Maga and Ryan took to it instantly. Ryan was able to keep up with the class due to his high fitness levels and willingness to learn all of the respective moves. Ryan was quick to find the transport route to the classes from his house and attended the next class just two days later without any support.

Ryan has rarely missed a class since. I attended just two more classes with Ryan over the coming weeks and was able to see his progress and the respect he had gained from fellow class members due to his polite nature, good work ethic and natural ability.

Ryan has since told me that learning a useful method of self-defence has helped him to increase his confidence and is now looking into stepping his training up with a variety of different self-defence groups available in Perth.
