About

DOUVRIS is a karate family.

We are devoted to cultivating the practise of karate Ottawa, supporting the pursuit of fitness, fostering kinship, and developing leadership among people of all ages. Karate is a unique martial art for its use of choreographed forms, called katas, which improve focus, concentration, memory, and reaction time. At DOUVRIS martial arts Ottawa, we embrace the karate philosophy, which promotes individuals who are “inwardly humble and outwardly gentle.”

Established by brothers, karate champions, and Master Sensei John and Peter Douvris in 1984, DOUVRIS programs, methods, and standards have been designed, tested, and proven over 30 years. We offer consistently high-quality programs in karate, fitness, and leadership throughout Ottawa-Carleton and Aylmer.

Our focus is helping our members build confidence, strength, and a positive sense of physical and mental well-being.
