Mestre Sylvio da Matta Behring, our BJJ guide and mentor for over a decade, paid his semi annual viist to our Red Deer school in April. An instructors seminar was followed by a grading of all of our Red Deer and Central Alberta area BJJ students and a student seminar.
Arashi-Do Martial Arts and Arashi-Do CSW Team Affiliates Coach Steve Newman and Kyoshi Gary Vig were not just honoured to help bring Erik Paulson to Alberta, but were extremely happy to participate in the first ever CSW seminar in Canada! Erik Paulson not only brings decades of experience with him but is an outstanding coach as well. His ability to communicate with his fellow instructors and students is matched by his energy and his willingness to demonstrate each and every move and countermove with the students. Learn more about Combat Submission Wrestling from Coach Erik's website. This was an great event for our instructors and for our members. Having special guests like Erik visit us here in Canada helps our whole martial arts community and being affiliated with professionals like Coach Erik, people with a vast pool of experience and knowledge, can only make our Arashi-Do community stronger. Stay tuned for updates on upcomingseminars and when we can expect Coach Erik to visit us again.
Our Karate program continues in strength and growth with these amazing and dedicated martial artists!
A huge thank you goes out to the competitors, parents, family and friends who came to and participated in the second of our Central Alberta Samurai Sword Series Tournaments on Saturday, March 14.
There's nothing like putting in a day of work and then going to the local martial arts dojo and working out all of that physical stress on the mats!
