Self Defense


The biggest and most important part of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is knowing where it came from and what was it’s purpose.

BJJ, like every orther Martial Art was intended for Self Defense.  Many modern schools overlook this facet and tend to focus on the exciting and dynamic sport style of grappling made famous by the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships).

At Arashi Do Martial Arts we develop a strong foundation in BJJ through understanding Self Defense and once a base has been established, the next logical step is to apply the techniques with resistance… thus the sport of BJJ is introduced.

A common class at Arashi Do will include a warm up of sport specific movements, a Standing Self Defense technique or two, a ground technique and then some sport specific drilling situation to finish off the class.  This is the best part as you get to challenge the skills against the many assistants in the class.

Come on down to any of the 7 Edmonton and Area location to see what has made Arashi Do Martial Arts so popular.
