Little Dragons

Ages 5-8

Train with us twice a week to learn focus, confidence, respect, and all of the other benefits of traditional Karate.


Youth Intermediate

Ages 9-12

This class is for our more advanced kids, as well as new transfers from other dojos who already have higher belts. You must have green belt and up to join this class, as well as great attitude and respect.



And Mature Teens

This is where our students aged 15 and up attend, but the majority of our students here are grown adults. We train traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu and are a part of the IOGKF. Everyone trains at their own pace, and does the best they can. Adults also have the benefit of being part of a larger organization, the IOGKF, which allows for worldwide events, training, grading, tournaments, and more. See iogkf.com or iogkf.ca for more info.

Youth Beginner

Ages 9-12

Beginners aged 9-12 are welcome to start learning the ropes in this class. We teach more than punching and kicking: this class is all about respect, focus, working with others, leadership and self improvement. 



Ages 12-15

Too old for kids classes, but not ready for adults yet? This is the spot for you. Our younger teens (aged 12-13) must have achieved at least a blue belt, where as our older teens (14-15) can have any belt at all, even white.

We signed our 6 year old son up last week and he absolutely loves it. Immediately noticed a change in his behaviour....and we didn't even sign him up because of that lol. If you're looking for an extracurricular activity for your kids (or you) I highly recommend taking them to Ogawa Karate. So happy with our decision.
