Classes usually begin and end with a formal bow in/out and warm-up, followed by practice of the basic blocks, kicks and punches. Further training can include kata (forms), conditioning exercises, drills and self-defense practice. Students that have enough experience also learn kobudo (weaponry).
Students are expected to train seriously and with the knowledge that karate is a journey. We are not a “black belt school”.
We have partnered with Montreal Wado Ryu Karate School to share space and offer classes for adults, children and families. Students have a chance to get exposure to different training styles and methodologies, while gaining understanding of other cultures and themselves.
