We are affiliated with the International Karate Daigaku (university) founded by Shuseki Shihan Frank Woon-A-Tai. Master Woon-A-Tai has visited us several times since opening the dojo here in St. John's. to conduct a clinic and exams.
If you're looking to learn self-defense, the traditional Japanese Karate style of Shotokan is ideal. This complete and orthodox martial art is practiced globally and teaches techniques for striking, throwing, arm locks, choke holds, arm bars, and more. With just one technique, you can take out an attacker instead of fighting someone larger or grappling on the ground. You don't need to be experienced or in top shape, as we personalize instruction to match your skill level.
Our classes are relaxed with positive reinforcement and no negativity. We have fun while learning karate in an informal setting. I'll be there to assist with training, but visiting instructors who are world-renowned Masters ranked no less than 7th deg Black Belt will conduct exams. We don't push beyond physical limits but help them reach their full potential by modifying techniques to suit their abilities.
