At the recent Karate Canada National Championships 2017 our Mason Gardecki-Browett (on the left ) makes an amazing point. He ultimately finished in the top 10. Congratulations Mason!

Come and train with us.

As a member of the International Karate-Do Gojukai Association Canada we are part of a world wide organisation dedicated to peace and respect for ourselves and others.

Everything comes from the basicsOur karate training follows the teachings of the late Master Gogen Yamaguchi (The Cat).

We offer Adults and Teens classes Monday through Thursday evenings for those who want a challenge. Kids classes are available for a variety of ages and abilities.

In addition to Karate classes, other programs offered at West Coast Gojukai include Hatha Yoga classes for gentle stretching, strengthening, improved balance and better concentration. And for a more gentle approach try the Beginner Yoga Class.

We also offer a Traditional Weapons class. An excellent opportunity for those of you who want to experiment with an alternative to 'empty hand' martial arts.

Check our schedule for class times.

Inspirational thoughts:
We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness, which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we must come at last to regard the world.  
-- Marcel Proust

Our Tough Mudder Team KATACLYSM successfully completed the 19 km and 20 obstacles together this year. A few bruises, a nasty scrape, mild sprain and a lost GoPro were the result of 4 hrs of challenge. In the cold, the wet and the mud we were brought closer together by our need for each other to get through the course. We also needed to huddle together for warmth!!
