what our members say...

“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.”
“It’s a great school with an amazing and dedicated staff! It’s a very inclusive environment and truly a Douvris family!”

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 April is

Humility

Some concepts are easy to explain with words. Humility isn’t really one of them. We can talk about it – and we do, as part of our character development program – but in order to help people understand humility, we have to make sure they can experience it.

As Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains, karate is excellent at teaching humility because it has a lot of ups and downs built into it. Students have to master particular sets of skills before they’re allowed to move to a higher belt, and without humility we would have a hard time improving ourselves. But what sets us apart at Douvris Martial Arts is that our program includes a healthy dose of competition.
