More than a sport or mere combat, Okinawan Karate is a way of life.
Imagine a safe, high-energy activity with limitless learning and enjoyment that can be practiced throughout your lifetime and you are imagining Karate classes for adults at Toronto’s York AMA. Our unique program consists of instruction in Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate, Goshin Jitsu (self-defense) and ancient weapons taught in a traditional ‘Dojo’ environment where mutual courtesy and respect are the rule.
Karate training involves cardio vascular exercise for stamina, resistance training for strength, and stretching exercises for flexibility, none of which you need to have before starting in our beginners classes. Our program helps the body and the mind letting you get the stress out, regain your composure and improve your confidence, concentration and patience.
Whether you are 20 something looking for some great martial arts training, a 30 something looking for something more interesting than the gym, or a 40 something looking to be ‘Fit for Fifty’ and beyond, our program can help you get there.
