Shito Ryu Karate  |  Grappling |  Okinawan Weapons


Our School

Shito-Ryu Karate


Our striking game is derived from this Okinawan martial art.  Learn the elements of effective fighting while enjoying the beauty of movement through kata (patterns).



Most often fights end up on the ground.  Grappling will show you how to defend yourself  when striking is no longer the best -  or possible - option.

Okinawan Weapons


An ancient form of martial arts, Kobudo skills teach the use of weapons as an extension of your body. Learn techniques with bo, sai, nunchaku, tonfa and short sticks.

Sensei Ball


We like to use this fast-paced version of handball as a fun warm-up and wrap-up during class. It's a great cardio workout. Watch for our regular tournaments!



If you'd like to test your skills against other students from around the province - and the world - we'll support you every step of the way. 



Our dojo is a community. You're always welcome to stay after class and share a coffee and some conversation before you return to your busy day.
