Traditional Goju-Ryu Karate

At the Shima Karate School we have a number of different programs.

Samurai Class
4 to 6 year olds – Here we work on improving coordination and expand the students karate knowledge with techniques that take them into the stripe belt system.
Junior Class
7 to 11 year olds – At this stage the students can physically keep up with the demands of the full karate program. They learn katas, sparring and develop self defense skills. Goal setting, work ethic, honesty and integrity are some of the qualities that are developed.
Teen Class
11 to 13 year olds – Here the students are finally starting to discover their full strengths, skills are refined and students can compete up to a provincial level. We talk about peer pressure and bullying and what to do if confronted with it.
Adult Class
14 and up – The adult program finishes fine tuning the students physical, mental and spiritual abilities to get them ready for their Black Belt Grading. The student must be 16 years of age to grade unless there is a special recommend for their sensei.
MOMS Class
This class is open to any of the moms in the dojo, actually any moms period.
Instructed by Sempai Katherine Good who is a Yoga instructor as well and incorporates this into her classes.
We now have more than a dozen brave moms who are taking their lives to a new level.
