We're the only IOGKF affiliated traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do school in Kitchener. We aim to provide our participants the very best in what traditional karate has to offer.
Scholars' Martial Arts operates out of the gymnasium of Scholars' Hall Private School in Kitchener, Ontario. We offer classes in Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do. We also offer weapons classes . We accept students of all ages, and have separate programs for each age range. We've been in operation since September, 2012.
Our karate program is authentic. We are members of the IOGKF (the International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do Federation). Our focus is to develop the body, mind, and spirit through our practice.
Our classes are dynamic; we focus on improving range of motion, increasing flexibility, promoting strength, practicing mindfulness, and employing self-defence tactics. We engage and challenge our students to consistently become a better version of their selves, daily.
