what our members say...

“It’s a great school with an amazing and dedicated staff! It’s a very inclusive environment and truly a Douvris family!”
“I love coming to the school. It is part of my daily routine, and if I have to miss a class, I get very grumpy. I like the variety of classes, and the variety within classes from day to day and instructor to instructor. The instructors are knowledgeable and seem to know just how much they can push us to work harder.”

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 February is

Service

When you think about karate, you’re likely to think of certain words like discipline, respect, “karate chop”, strength, Bruce Lee, push-ups, sidekick and so on. One word that may not immediately come to mind is service. And yet it is a central value in a dojo.

As Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains, if it weren’t for service and people paying it forward, we wouldn’t have martial arts today. Martial arts still exist because practitioners have devoted themselves to helping new students learn by passing their knowledge down, generation after generation.
