Formerly Yoshukai Karate Canada, Seienjuku Karate Canada Honbu Dojo presents an opportunity to experience authentic Japanese style karate training.
We are dedicated to preserving traditional aspects of martial arts through hard training combined with etiquette and discipline. Seienjuku karate classes consist of rigorous cardiovascular, core strengthening, and stretching exercises along with intense body conditioning and effective full-contact fighting and self-defense techniques. Students can further participate in classes of traditional kata and Ryukyu Kobudo (Okinawan weapons). Private lessons are also available by appointment.
We are currently accepting students 14-years of age and older, and all students are welcome regardless of previous martial arts experience. Whether it be for fitness, confidence, personal safety, or developing martial arts skill and knowledge, everyone will benefit by training.
Group Classes Temporarily Suspended Due to COVID-19
The Provincial Health Officer has extended the existing suspension of all indoor group activities until February 7, 2021. As Martial Arts is one of the identified activities, we are forced to suspend all instructor-led classes at the dojo. Individual training and private lessons are still permitted under this order, and we will take individual reservations to book training time. Please contact Greg Sensei directly. Students must adhere to strict guidelines and cleaning routines as posted in the dojo.
