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.



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.


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.



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. 


My family has been training at this Arashi-Do since it first opened, it has become our second home. The instructors are world class in
knowledge. Regardless of the discipline you train, the instructors will always take the time to answer a question and teach a technique properly. I cannot think of a better Dojo to train in and many of my instructors and my training partners are now some of my closest friends.

The coaching staff, atmosphere, and athletes at Arashi-Do are top notch. I’ve been a personal trainer for 10 years and have seen a lot of gyms and fitness fads come and go, so if you are looking at this from a workout standpoint it is tried, tested and works. I have never been in better shape in my life than when I was training at this club.

Martial Arts has allowed me to develop as a person both on and off the mat in ways I feel no other sport or activity could. It has provided me with a positive outlet for stresses in my life and I feel I am calmer and a better person for it.
