 WELCOME! It's a new season and we have a lot to catch up on. First and foremost, welcome or welcome back to all of our students, family members, staff and instructors, to the new season!

Over the summer many of you took time off or were not yet members, so a brief look at what happened over the summer.

In June, Arashi-Do Martial Arts held it's Annual General Meeting. This is an opportunity for all owners and instructors and staff to get together, talk about the past year and plan for the upcoming year, and in general to  talk about the growth and development of Arashi-Do as a whole and of the many programs and projects on the go. This was a great weekend and you will see some new initiatives coming out of it this year.

July was fairly quiet as many of our students took some time off and some of our owners and staff took the opportunity to train or vacation or to renovate!

On August 16 Arashi-Do welcomed Erik Paulson for a first ever CSW seminar in Red Deer, AB! Erik Paulson trained in multiple martial arts and is generally regarded as an expert on grappling. This one of a kind opportunity was made possible because members of our Arashi-Do MMA team have been training as CSW coaches in Fullerton, California since 2014. We hope to see Coach Erik back again in the future!

August saw schools starting to gear up for the upcoming September season and it was the month that Arashi-Do Behring BJJ sent 27 team members to Rio de Janeiro to compete at the first ever CBJJD World Championships! Our team members trained and competed as a proud part of the Behring team with the second highest number of participants. You can read all about it here and here and here 

Also in August, our new website was launched! Same url:, but an entirely new layout and functionality that we want you all to explore. On the new website you will find a specific area, including an events calendar and blog and instructors, etc., just for your school. To keep up with your school's events and happenings just bookmark the page associated with that school.
