Happy New Year

I hope everyone has been enjoying the snow, holidays, and spending some time with family.

Classes will begin again on Sunday January 7th 2018.

I look forward to seeing you at the end of the week.


Closed for Coaches Training


This weekend The Leslieville Dojo will be closed for our coaches to upgrade their training and teaching skills. Our head instructor- Andrew Carr-Locke will be furthering his education as a coach through Sport Canada’s National Certification Program. This is the pathway for sport coaches to become Olympic level leaders in sport.

With these new levels in coaching recognition, we know our programs are rapidly becoming some of the best in the city for young upcoming athletes who wish to pursue competitive karate at a recreational or elite level.

Make-up classes will be available for this closure and details will be emailed to our students shortly. Thank you for your cooperation.
