Student, Head Instructor and Owner of Arashi Do Springbank

Following my 4 year old daughters footsteps as a little dragon, I joined Arashido at the age of 34 in Aug 2003 with no back ground in martial arts at all. I was out of shape and a smoker. By Blue belt I was a Sempei (Senior rank Assisting), lost 60 lbs and quit smoking . By Brown belt I was filling in teaching when needed and on Nov 24 2006, I was privileged to receive my black belt. I took on the role of instructor on a more permanent basis teaching for Kyoshi Mike at Two schools in Calgary, Hillhurst and Springbank. This was just the beginning of something life changing.
