Students learn Legacy Shorin Ryu karate, including blocks, strikes, kicks, joint locks and take-downs. This is a well-rounded dojo where physical fitness and technical skill are balanced with a proper understanding of the history and purpose of karate training - and lots of games and activities that keep our students coming back for more!

Graduates of Kinder Kix are also invited to join this class, even if they're not 8 years old yet. Our advanced students are also encouraged to participate in these classes to assist and develop their leadership skills. Two awesome classes per week.

Karate's sister martial art is "kobudo" - ancient weaponry. The weapons we train in are tombo, bo, sai, nunchaku, tonfa, and kama. Each week, we have a dedicated kobudo class, and each month, we train with kobudo expert Kyoshi Mike Woodworth from London, Ontario.
