We offer instruction in traditional Okinawa Karate-do as well as Ryukyu Kobudo. Classes are open to students 19 years and older. Our goals in training are the development of the student’s body, mind, and spirit as well as the improvement of self-defense skills. We train in a non-competitive environment where members work to better their Karate and Kobudo and to help other members improve as well.
Classes are 60 to 90 minutes long and consist of stretching, calisthenics, kata (forms), and paired practice using with the techniques found in classical kata. We do not participate in competitive events in or outside of the dojo. In the dojo, we aim to train hard, work together to develop our skills, and enjoy our training. If this interests you contact us . We train out of Hillcrest Community Centre (4575 Clancy Loranger Way, Vancouver, BC).
Our dojo is a social place and members are friendly both in and outside the dojo. We hold social events such as pot lucks, Christmas party, New Years party, or after practice get-togethers, as well as attend or host the occasional seminar.
