We are devoted to a community spirited traditional approach to training in the martial art of Gojukai Karate-Do. Regular classes are held during the week for children, teenagers and adults of all ages. New students are always welcome.

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.

We are pleased to announce that the Maple Ridge dojo is going great. So if Coquitlam is too far to travel maybe this additional location will suit you.

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.
