I have always held an interest in martial arts but lacked the time and commitment as a young adult. I joined
Arashi-Do in my 40’s and it continues to be a great physical and mental challenge. I am at the beginning of an exhilarating and challenging adventure and look forward to growing my skills with Arashi-Do.
