Arashi-Do celebrates new dojo

The new dojo is located at 4 - 14 Thevanaz Industrial Trail

Arashi-Do Sylvan Lake celebrated its newest location in Sylvan Lake on Sept. 7.

“It’s great to have such a fantastic facility,” Head Instructor Renshi Ken Sumner said. “It’s got everything we wanted, mirrors, a shower, lots of mat space, and the greatest teaching staff I could hope for.”

The open house started at 4 pm, and started off slow but picked up momentum as the day went on. The final session was an open Brazilian Jiujitsu workout with lots of rolling (Rolling is the Brazilian Jiujitsu equivalent of sparring).

With 21 people on the mats aged from 12 up to grandparents, the crew celebrated the new dojo with a fantastic workout. People came from Sylvan Lake, Red Deer and even Rocky Mountain House.

Dylan from Red Deer commented, “This is an amazing space! Great job!”
