A quick web search shows a high concentation of these schools in Alberta, Canada and Romania with a few scattered around the US. I've never heard of it before and it certainly does not ring any bells as being one of the "traditional" ryu, though the web sites state that it is a traditional style. Some of the Japanese history I saw seemed to be a little off, but not anything that couldn't be accounted for by a bit of artistic license.

Gut opinion: most likely a spin-off of a traditional karate ryu by someone who wanted to start his own dojo and implement some stuff he learned from various other schools over the years. Must have been either fairly good at it or a hell of a franchiser to have started so many different dojos.

welcome to this place.

Please read the three notes at the top of the Karate forum menu, and check the rules at the bottom of each page, especially the one about signing with your full name, ok?

Have fun,

arashi-means storm

do or doh-means way or path

kara-means empty


so logically I am guessing that arashi do karate means

storm way empty hand


empty handed storm way
