Karate for 55+

Our Karate for 55+ program is designed for men and women over the age of 55. Karate offers many benefits to adults of all ages and this program is designed to help mature adults take advantage of all of them, including:

  • Improve concentration
  • Increase overall energy levels and enhanced abilities in other activities
  • Improve balance, flexibility, strength, coordination
  • Increased anaerobic efficiency
  • Learn self-defense skills
  • Meet other active adults
  • Increased strength and flexibility
  • Increased stamina
  • Firm and tone your body

The program is unique from our regular Adult Karate Program in these ways:

  • Emphasis on gentle movement
  • Training without sparring
  • Greater focus on kata (choreographed forms that improve focus and concentration)

The 55+ Karate program includes:

  • Stretching, warm-up and cool-down
  • Individual progression: move at your own pace
  • Progress to Black Belt and beyond if you choose
  • Train with like-minded people
  • Access to all Fitness classes

Benefits of our Karate for 55+ Program:

  1. Karate allows people to work at their own pace, so there is never pressure to keep up.
  2. Karate is a low impact activity that works every muscle and bone in the body.
  3. Karate trains both mind and body.
  4. Karate offers a journey for all participants to embark on. We have students in their 70’s who have achieved their Black Belt.
  5. There is always reason for every person to learn self-defense skills to keep them safe.

what our members say...

“The school exceeded my expectations in the staff’s care for and encouragement of students. I very much appreciate the constant support and understanding from everyone, and I’m happy important life lessons like respect and etc. are covered.”
“I am in my forties and never expected to do martial arts, never mind enjoy it so much. I work mostly with Fortunato, but both Aversa brothers are excellent teachers and kind, respectful people. They inspire their students and set great examples both when they fight and when they teach.”

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 August is

Honesty

You are only ever as good as your word, and that’s why honesty is a critical part of our character development program.

As Sensei Cody Diesbourg says, at its simplest, honesty means telling the truth. Not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because we want other people to believe us and have faith in us. This means having the courage and honesty to recognize when we get something wrong, and make efforts to correct it.
