Arashi Do Martial Arts has been operating in Edmonton since 1997 and was recently voted BEST Martial Arts School by the readers of Vue Weekly. Offering classes for ages 4-7, 8-12, 13-16, and adults in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Shotokan Karate and Kettlebell Conditioning.
Arashi Do has been at the forefront of instructing BJJ, Muay Thai and Kettle bell training to the residents of Edmonton before it became popular. Arashi Do is leading the pack again by being the only school in Alberta to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai to children as young as four years old.
Arashi Do North is owned and operated by Mike Yackulic. Mike began his training in 1992 with Arashi Do and has earned Black belts in Karate, BJJ, Muay Thai (Khru status) as well as an accomplished amateur an professional competitor and coach to all levels of athletes from local to UFC .
