Men, women and children from all walks of life, regardless of age or fitness level can benefitfrom training in karate. you will increase your fitness level, self-esteem, confidence and knowledge of self-defense whetheryou are training to compete or just for fun. There are no prerequisites just a willingness to try your best. You can come to all classes or just a few.

We are a Karate B.C. sanctioned club and we belong to the World Chito Ryu Karate Association. These are the governingbodies that oversee our testing, competing and insurance. Many families join to stay fit together as a family while learning a traditional martial art.

Chito Ryu is one of the oldest styles of karate in Canada and emphasizes character development through respect, discipline, hard workand perseverence. Our family oriented focus comes from an understanding that families that train together in traditional martial artscan be more successful in and outside the dojo because they support one another and develop and apply positive character traits together.

The term 'Kaizen' included in the club name, means 'continuous improvement' or 'change for better'. Change for everyone, occurs at a different pace. We will support your continuous improvement goals and find the pace that is best for you.
