what our members say...

“Douvris Bank Street is fantastic. Our experience with Sensei Cody is priceless. Cathy’s friendliness, attention to detail approachability and professionalism is a huge asset.”
“I have found it to be a very liberating and confidence building experience. I am still (4 yrs later) impressed that I can actually do some of this stuff! The fitness regime is complete and blends together so many things, cardio, muscle sculpting, self-awareness, etc.”

Striving 4 Excellence

character development, square ad

DOUVRIS Martial Arts strongly believes in developing the character of our students along with the martial arts skills we teach them. The Striving for Excellence character development program was developed with over 30 years experience in teaching children respect, confidence and self-discipline. Striving for Excellence gives our members the opportunity to discuss, practice, and apply character development traits in their lives. The program includes a Karate Kids Workbook and a Karate Tykes Colouring book which children complete each month at home. The lessons outlined in the workbook are designed to accompany the “Word of the Month” which instructors discuss with students during each class.

The Word of the Month for June is

Excellence

Excellence is a word that sounds like a destination. But it’s not. It’s a process, an evolution. At Douvris Martial Arts we believe that pushing ourselves every day to be better than the day before is what will help us become the best we can be.

“When we’re talking about excellence, we’re really talking about effort,” Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains. “You don’t have to be the best at what you’re doing yet, but if you put in the effort that’s where you’re going to get to.”
