Anshin Arashi translates to “Calm mind within the storm”. It is comprised of techniques from Judo, Jujutsu, Aikijujutsu, and Aikido. The Anshin Arashi system is the culmination of over 35 years of training and teaching by the founder, Soke Mike Love.
Anshin Arashi is traditional training combined with modern principles. Every range of combat is addressed from long range weapons such as the Katana (Iaijutsu/Kenjutsu) and Aiki Jo to grappling and everything in between. Unlike Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which concentrates mostly on ground work, Anshin Arashi is designed for multiple opponents. Ground work is taught with the express purpose of getting back to one’s feet to deal with subsequent opponent’s attacks.
