I think Mike's now a four-stripe brown. The original article is a little out-of-date. I trained at Arashi-do for two years, at both locations -- I did a little muay thai, but mostly BJJ, and ranked up to a blue belt before I left (as a result of moving country).
I greatly enjoyed training there. We had regular seminars from visiting black belts, including Mestre Sylvio Behring, who the BJJ program is delivered under.
Many of the guys I trained with fought in KOTC -- and a few of the guys had fought with MFC. There's now a slew of new MMA organisations in edmonton, including TFC, heat XC -- I'm sure more than one person has thought there.
So, I'd say the BJJ instruction is pretty good. This would be a good gym to train at, if you wanted to learn some BJJ, or get into MMA. I only trained muay thai for a year, but Kru Chris Bonde seemed very skilled, and I enjoyed it a lot.

Inflation can be a bitch. Especially four years worth.

i called arashi-do today for muay thai prices, and its 127$ a month, is it worth it? because im a student and i have to work and pay for it myself, so i wanna know if ill get a lot out of my money. its really pricey though. and i've always wanted to do it, it if was cheaper i would go for it.

How many classes does that buy you?

idk i just asked for the monthly price

but it still seems too expensive just to take up a combat sport

Not really - if you get 3 classes per week that averages out at 10 bucks a lesson, or a little over two pints or 1 Mcvalue meal.
30 bucks a week is not bad value - if you think that is too expensive you are either (a) not serious or (b) a cheap ass
