what our members say...

“It’s been a real discovery for my son, both in terms of what the program teaches physically and in life skills, and with the sense of belonging and camaraderie that it builds. The senseis have the right attitude and outlook on the job they do. I pay attention to the young black belts and how they approach their teaching duties with younger kids, and it speaks volumes about the program and philosophy.”
“Our kid used to get bullied, and has never recurred since signing up. But the real benefit is that our child can now concentrate on school, not the negative environment associated with lunch hr or outside play. Brilliant, different kid since day 1.”

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.
