Each year our schools in Calgary and Cochrane participate in a club tournament. Featuring Karate, BJJ, Muay Thai, weapons and team competitions, this tournament is fun, fierce, and fantastic!

Summer is traditionally a time of exploration, loose bedtimes, warm nights and cool (hopefully) mornings, vacation and playing! Summer is game nights, family camping, roasted marshmallows and star gazing, and more than anything else it is that time when you can let go of some of the stresses of everyday life and relax. Summer is also one of the best times to start your martial arts journey!
Wow! What an amazing day!
A tournament can be fun, competitive, and affirm your skills and development as a martial artist. The Samurai Sword Series 4, Calgary, was definitely fun, competitive, and affirming!! The fourth in a five part series of tournaments for our Calgary and Cochrane locations, this tournament was a special challenge as there were so many students who were brand new and had never participated in a tournament. Every one of the competitors was an example of good sportsmanship, courage, and skill development across the martial arts continuum.
In 2010, GSS (General Social Survey) conducted a research survey asking Canadians across the age, gender, income, and nationality spectrum when and what sports they actively participated in. This survey and the conclusions drawn from the results are not so much startling as they are a guide to helping understand what is happening and may suggest ways to see an increase in participation. The single most telling result showed decreased sport participation across all age groups (pg 14).
Now offered at Rocky's Arashi-Do Martial Arts:
