ABOUT US 

In 1985, Kyoshi Mike Bonde and Kyoshi Gary Vig started Arashi-Do with the goal of creating a family of skilled martial artists. Arashi-Do now offers programs in Karate, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Our black belts are known for exceptional physical skill, mental awareness and personal stability.

Arashi-Do Martial Arts has grown to over 20 locations across Alberta. Our schools are run by certified, professional martial arts instructors who receive ongoing training as teachers and martial artists. 

At Arashi-Do, we believe the benefits of martial arts training are immeasurable. Arashi-Do is proud of our accomplishments but we are far more proud of the people we have helped to become the great representatives they are today.

OUR AFFILIATIONS

KARATE AFFILIATIONS

Karate was the first martial art taught at Arashi-Do. For many years it was the primary focus of our school. 

Arashi-Do is affiliated with the Canadian Jing-Ying Martial Arts Association under the leadership of 8th Degree SiGung/Sensei Dale Lee who has trained extensively over the past 50 years in many striking martial arts styles including Kung Fu and Karate, as well as being a expert in martial arts weapons. Arashi-Do has been proudly affiliated with JIng-Ying since 1992.

Arashi-Do is also a member of the Karate Alberta Association, an organization that was formed to govern the development of traditional karate in Alberta. KAA is the only government recognized organization for Karate in Alberta. It provides leadership for the Alberta Karate community and is committed to providing a safe environment for training and competition for all levels. Karate Alberta is a member of Karate Canada, which is a member of the Canadian Olympic Committee, the World Karate Federation and the Pan American Karate Federation.

MUAY THAI AFFILIATIONS

Lom Pa Yu is the Muay Thai branch of Arashi-Do Martial Arts. In 2003 Khru Yai Chris Bonde travelled to Lamai Camp on Koh Samui Thailand, to train with Coach Stephan Fox, Vice President and National Coordinator of the World Muay Thai Council (WMC). His passion for the sport of Muay Thai led him to develop our current Muay Thai program. Khru Yai Chris continues to go to Thailand every year and has developed a strong partnership with the Lamai Camp.

Lom Pa Yu is affiliated with the World Muay Thai Council (WMC), the authoritative body for regulating Muay Thai, both in Thailand and around the world. The Council’s primary objective is to maintain and promote excellence in the art of Muay Thai.

JIU JITSU AFFILIATIONS

In 2005 Professor Mike Yackulic was tasked with developing a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program for Arashi-Do. His research led to Mestre Sylvio da Matta Behring, an 8th degree coral belt in Brazil. Together Arashi-Do and Mestre Behring created the Arashi-Do Behring Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Alliance and our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu curriculum. Mastre Behring is a guide, a mentor, and one of the most outstanding Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners and educators of our era and it is our deep honor to be an Arashi-Do Behring school.

Mestre Behring is part of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu family that brought BJJ to the world outside of Brazil and continues to be an ambassador for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, spending countless hours traveling, training and teaching at schools across the world. 

OUR INSTRUCTORS

MIKE BONDE

Kyoshi

“At first I taught because it was interesting to pass on my knowledge to others. Over time I came to understand that the value of martial arts comes from the life skills it can give to people. Courage, respect and determination are things you need to succeed in martial arts however once you adopt them into lifestyle you can use them to accomplish any goal you set your mind to. That is the power of teaching and it is extremely satisfying to me to see people grow with my help. It allows me through my teaching to feel that I make a contribution to my students lives and the community at large.”
